On August 18th, 1990 Whitesnake headlined at the premier UK festival, the legendary Monsters Of Rock at Castle Donington, now known as Download.
The Monsters of Rock festival was one of the most memorable events on an unforgettable world tour that saw the band play to over one million people around the on the Liquor & Poker World Tour .
An incendiary musical chapter of the band that featured Steve Vai & Adrian Vandenberg on guitars, bassist Rudy Sarzo, drummer Tommy Aldridge & singer David Coverdale; a high octane performance, firing on all cylinders...and Whitesnake in all its fiery musical splendour.
Every effort has been made to bring the very best out of what is an incredible, never before seen, visual treat capturing one of the most musically intense line-ups of Whitesnake performing in front of over 70,000 people. Mixed in glorious 5.1 & living, breathing stereo!
Whitesnake & Frontiers Records are proud to present the next best thing to actually being there.
Now, over 20 years later, you can experience being in the middle of the crowd for the complete sensory experience. And even if you were actually there, you can now relive the event & let the memories of that time coming flooding back.
This is a raw, emotional, head-banging show, that allows even the most discerning fan to relive the magic of that hot summer night over 20 years ago. The DVD also includes a substantial gallery of never before published photographs of the band on the Liquor & Poker World Tour 1990 plus an intimate Behind The Scenes documentary of the creative journey of the Slip Of The Tongue album, beginning with Adrian & David composing the songs, the band working on the arrangements in pre-production rehearsals at Lake Tahoe, the actual recording sessions in Reno & Los Angeles, behind the cameras at a video shoot and all the way to the end of the tour itself, culminating in the final show in Japan s fabled Budokan in Tokyo plus all never before seen footage from David Coverdale s private home video collection!

I can't believe people are criticizing this release for 20 year old video technology. Hello, wake up everybody. There was no Hi-Def smart phone blue ray technology in 1990. David didn't claim that this was stellar footage - in fact he made sure you knew up front that it wasn't. But fans (like me) have waited and hoped for 20 years to have something released from that era - and here it is.
I gave it a 4 cause there are a few things that maybe could have been done better - but like David said - it is what it is. And I'm glad to have it. Now, a few of you probably need to get back to watching your hidef Brittney bluerays and let the grown ups watch Whitesnake in peace.
But, there is no way you can give it more than 3 stars. The quality of the audio would be 4 stars easily but the video is worth 2 at the most. The video is really bad. Let me put it this way: it is a video bootleg quality level.
But I read the reviews before purchasing it and would buy it again. The reason why I bought it was to see Steve Vai playing with David Coverdale. And the band is great with Vandenberg, Sarzo and Aldrigde. The entire band is motivated, energetic and dedicated through the entire concert.
David is singing great, really great.
Another reason for you to buy this is that Whitesnake gets worse every year after this. The real Whitesnake, for me, is the one of the first albums. after Bernie left they still could come up with some good albums, Saints and Sinners, 1987, Slide it In, but as time went by David sung higher and higher, and the music of the band got heavier and heavier. This is not a problem in itself. The problem though is that Whitesnake is not a heavy metal band and David is not Glenn Hughes. That is what makes it complicated. The album David did with Steve for example is one of the bad ones, unfortunately. They did not gel in the studio I think. It was the beginning of the descend.
Anyway, again, in this DVD David still has the incredible voive we know and love and seeing him together with Steve Vai on stage is an event in itself.
If you have any similar genre DVD's in your collection, this one will be a welcome addition.
