This was released as a CD bootleg called "In Your Trousers", which I'm sure is downloadable somewhere.
Unfortunately, most of the available 1993-94 shows with Satriani are only available in audience recordings. My favorite performance was from Genova, Italy, which is available on a boot known as "Welcome Joe." The sound quality is poor, but the performance is stunning. I would rate it pretty close to Made In Japan/Made In Europe quality, actually, apart from Gillan's reduced 1990s vocal abilities.
There is now a soundboard floating around out there, but I don't have it yet--must fix that:
