    Default YRGM/Rockin' In The Free World - July 6, 1993

    I've wanted this DVD for a good five years now. Somebody promised me I'd have it, claimed he mailed it twice, but I never received it.

    Still, this is clearly the best video-documented show from the RHRN Tour, and thank God YouTube has the clips so I don't necessarily need the DVD in my possession anymore

    In what to me was very uncharacteristic of VH at the time, and I'm sure is common knowledge to most around here, they closed each show with a smokin' cover of "Rockin' In The Free World." I have a great audio boot from Noblesville on that tour but left it at home. Haven't heard the VH version of it in...has to be about three or four years. Decided to look into it and it's a whole lot better than I remember it.

    So sit back, relax, and enjoy the best touring act in the world at the time

    Hard to believe that just three years later those guys hated each other.

    Absolutely LOVE that cover - amazing stuff.

    The other clip I love watching on Youtube is the 1991? Top of the World (VanHalenArchive) - am going to try and post the link - the fan at the end who gets to hug Ed is one lucky b*****d - if it was me, you'd have had to prize me off with a chisel; I'd have stuck to him like a leech with all that sweat dripping off him - fab!!!

    Same here! I have that boot as well and it's awesome. It was weird reading about that show in Sammy's book and how that was when Ed Leffler got sick. I believe Sam said it was one of their best shows.
