Performances from Robbie Williams
The last 120 Minutes of the 1990s/20th century! This is a really weird episode. It's hosted by Dave Holmes during his short-lived stint after Pinfield left. The first hour is introduced by him and has the 120 Minutes opening, but it is all performances from the Robbie Williams concert video 'Live at Slane Castle'. It's unclear if Capitol Records paid for the time. Some Googling shed some light on why MTV gave one artist so much airtime for concert performances not even done in-studio.
