From the uploader:
Yes – I kid you not – Richard Gere joins Van on stage for this show in Brighton UK. I don’t know if this happened anywhere else…or what RG was doing in Brighton…maybe someone can enlighten us.

My sister, who still lives in Brighton, was at this show and told me soon after about the appearance of RG…it was her impression that having performed a song he then stayed on stage longer than he was supposed to. Just before “And the healing has begun” he seems to insist on making a speech – when he finally introduces the song the band are in so quick you have the impression they may be getting a tad annoyed. Anyway, judge for yourself.

This is a good audience recording of Van with a great band and the focus (in these comments) on RG should not detract from the talent on show – John Lee Hooker, Brian Kennedy, Georgie Fame et al.

  3. Thanks so much for this – great band, great show! (Despite Mr Gere’s best sabotage attempts…) Thanks yet again for feeding the Van habit…

  5. Hi Matt,

    Many heartfelt thanks for posting the last two great Van shows. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. One can simply never get enough of Van.

    Best wishes to you and your family.

  6. The real question is – What on earth was John Lee doing in Brighton ( a Victorian seaside resort on the south coast of England) in ’94!! A long long way from home and well into his San Francisco semi-retirement of the 90s.

    Also why the **** wasn’t I there??

    Having been fortunate enough to catch my all time favourite blues artist live on 3 occasions in the period 86-91, by ’94 I had pretty much given up on the possibility of ever seeing him perform again. To think he was playing with Van just a train/bus ride away!!

    Gotta track this one down in lossless methinks

    Thanks Mat
