At the beginning of '93 there were rumors he wasn't going to make it over to Holland either, because the venue that the promotors offered him "wasn't big enough". I always thought that was baloney, but I played it safe and got a ticket to see him in Frankfurt, Germany. Of course he ended up coming to Holland after all in October of that year, so I went again.
Maybe that was a money issue as well? All the gigs he did here were sold-out though.
