Cassette Tape Bootleg
Straight after the European tour in support of Bon Jovi, Dan Reed Network stayed on UK shores for their own headlining tour, starting at Manchester International II – a show I was at the very front of the stage for, having already seen them twice with Bon Jovi at Wembley Arena.
This show is taken from the very next night, at the Riverside in Newcastle.
I was looking through bootlegs at a record fair (oh how I miss them and the dodgy market stalls), and this was the first bootleg cassette tape of Dan Reed Network that I had ever found. I was in complete disbelief that a recording of DRN live existed.
This show is Dan Reed Network let loose with no constraints. A great setlist and performance. Future B-Sides and A-sides in the form of ‘Money’ and ‘You Can Leave Your Hat On’ made early appearances.
This is an audience recording bootleg. Quality is a B-.
