So we know that Guns is said to have recorded every show on the UYI tour, but do we know if they also recorded supporting acts? There were some great bands in their prime supporting on that tour like Soundgarden, Blind Melon and Faith No More. Imagine how cool it would be if they released shows from the tour along with a bonus pro-shot recording of the support.

Donít forget that Skid Row open for them in 1991. Skid Row was red hot at the time.

And Nine Inch Nails too. Be interesting to know who would own the rights to any footage of the support bands.

It would probably have to be a joint collaboration with the bands. I really do wonder if we'll ever see that stuff in this lifetime, or only after the band have all died off and it's then the record company's decision. It's a shame that so many bands sit on live recordings they have. I'd love to hear what's in AC/DC's vault as well, but the prospects look similarly dim. Most of all, I feel bad for any fans who don't live long enough to see those performances released.

When the Paris PPV 1992 show was on TV here a long time ago, they also included the Soundgarden set just before GNR. But probably just because it was a special concert, recorded for PPV.

It depends a lot on what the venue is and the contract the band has signed. Most big venues are filming the sets to go straight up on the big screens. The headline act will (almost always) have their own team doing this, and the band usually have it in their contract that they retain the footage. Festival shows are different, and the footage is sometimes the property of the organiser.......although they can't actually do much with that footage (such as make a commercial release) but also often remains the property of the acts. Again, this all forms part of the individual contract deals.

With the support acts, the filming of them is most likely done by the headline acts team, but the footage likely to remain the property of the support act, if they've negotiated that term in the contract.

The most likely scenario though is that this hasn't formed part of the contract, and the reality is probably that even though they were filmed, the footage wasn't even kept. With film being relatively quite expensive back them, I imagine it's even a possibility that the film was recorded over rather than stored.
