This was a joint tour with Eric Clapton and they shared a fantastic backing band with the likes of Andy Fairweather Low, Nathan East, Ray Cooper, and backing singer legends Tessa Niles and Katie Kissoon (just their credits alone makes me envious). George picked out a few of his favourites over his career and had fun with a few of them, notably adding verses to Taxman and a wild solo spot by Clapton. I've only seen four videos from that tour on his DVD compilation Dark Horse Years, but I'll have to get the full DVD because he's in magnificent form here. For once just having the audio cds isn't the whole picture, you need to see how good George and the band are, he makes it look so easy.

Sadly there is no official DVD released of the 1992 concerts and Dhani said there probably never will be because of how the cameras filmed or something like that- I'll have to hunt through the Fiendish Thingys thread to find it.

However there are fan edits- from amateur footage taken by fans.

Oh so the ones I've seen on ebay must be bootlegs 🙁 That means the only "official" ones are on the Dark Horse Years DVD, and sadly there's only four of them: Taxman , Cheer Down, Devil's Radio, and Cloud 9.

Hard to believe that in 1992 this wasn't officially filmed. A true, true shame.

A fabulous album and quite underrated, with "psycho guitar" Clapton in fine form and the band tight. I especially enjoy the added guitar passages on I Want To Tell You , If I Needed Someone , While My Guitar Gently Weeps , and Something , plus Dark Horse with a proper vocal: hoarse no more. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be a complete professional video for this tour. The existing clips include the four mentioned above, plus a beautiful Give me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth), found on the Living in the Material World CD/DVD reissue and the Apple Years box set.

 

What happened to the rest of the footage, and why it is not available for viewing, I'm unsure. It's particularly a pity since there's limited documentation of George on stage post-Beatles, aside from Concert for Bangladesh. For anyone who may be interested, a few members of the Japan ensemble were also in the Concert for George mega-band: along with (of course) Clapton, guitarist Andy Fairweather Low, backing vocalists Tessa Niles and Katie Kissoon, and Ray Cooper on congas, tambourines, and bells were in on both gigs. Also, Steve Ferrone was the Clapton band's drummer on the Japan tour--by the time of Concert for George, Ferrone had joined Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.
