Last Night Anthrax's Live Stream ripped through the bands catalog and had a surprise guest with Public Enemy's singer/Rapper Chuck D on their collaboration of 'Bring The Noise'. The band played a set list mostly of their concert standards with some of their newer songs as well as one track from the Turbin era, 'Metal Thrashing Mad'. A bit if a surprise on the song 'Now it's Dark' from the "State Of Euphoria" which they have been playing more and more.
Sound and video quality was excellent and their performance like always high caliber. Throughout the Live stream there were also video messages from friends and artists congratulating them on their 40 years.
As a huge Bush fan I was a little disappointed that there were there were no songs in the set list from the Bush era (as he was on 4 studio album). The whole time I kept thinking John Bush would make a special appearance or at least Joey would sing one song but unfortunately did not happen. Otherwise whole experience was worth the value and I recommend it. You can still buy tickets and re-watch the whole show until Sunday, July 25th.

"I was a 17-year-old metal-head kid from Queens when I started this band," said Scott Ian. "I am a 57-year-old metal-head kid from Queens about to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this band. That means for 40 years, I've gotten to do exactly what I've wanted to do - and getting to do what I love and being a part of something so much bigger than myself has made the time, the unbelievable weight of 40 seems so light. It's been an amazing story so far, and I see 40 as a milestone that absolutely should be recognized and celebrated. Congratulations to us! I also see 40 as a stepping stone to the next chapter of Anthrax - we still have a lot to say and some killer riffs to unleash. I'm not going to say, "Here's to 40 more" because nobody wants to see that (I'd be 97). How about, "Here's to at least ten more, and we'll go from there! Thank you for enabling me, my friends."
ABOUT ANTHRAX: Twenty-twenty-one marks Anthrax's 40th anniversary, during which time the band has released 11 studio albums, been awarded multiple Gold and Platinum certifications, six Grammy nominations, and a host of other accolades from the media, the music industry, and fans. In 1991, the band helped break down race and genre barriers when they collaborated with Public Enemy on the track "Bring The Noise," and was the first metal band to have its music heard on Mars when NASA played "Got The Time" to wake up the Mars Rover in 2012. Along with Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth, Anthrax is a card-carrying member of The Big Four, the four bands that defined the speed/thrash/metal genre. Anthrax has also introduced a series now sold-out signature whiskeys and bourbons and partnered with the Stockholm-based NEZUMI Studios for a high-end, limited-edition Baleine dive watch. Twenty-twenty-one will see the release of Z2 Comics' "Among the Living" graphic novel with a track-by-track storyline inspired by Anthrax's iconic 1987 album, Among The Living. The book pulls together a "who's who" of names from the worlds of comics and music who created "bubble dialogue" and original artwork to express what the songs meant to them. Taking advantage of COVID-19's prohibition of concert touring, the band has been hard at work writing the next Anthrax album.
