SEVENDUST - July 19, 1997

This is a completely new, remastered edition of a show that I originally posted a couple years ago. For this I went back to the digital transfer of the original VHS-C video tape to remove a large amount of the tape hiss. This version has far superior sonics and captures a complete Sevendust show on one of their earliest tours in 1997. I've also created new artwork.

Soon after the release of their debut album in April 1997 Sevendust hit the road in an RV supporting Coal Chamber and Powerman 5000. Shortly before the this date in Lawrence, Kansas, Coal Chamber canceled to attend some type of MTV awards show. The show went forward without Coal Chamber, but Powerman 5000 didn't make it either (I believe due to their bus breaking down). So this left Sevendust to perform an unexpected headlining show with no supporting bands to a small crowd of about 30–50 people that didn't take a ticket refund.

Sevendust was completely on fire this night and ripped through the entire debut album over the course of an hour. They also goofed around on a covers medley where they mashed together riffs from King Kobra, Dio, Ratt, Powerman 5000, Coal Chamber, and Dio. It was an awesome show, with "Prayer" and "My Ruin" being major highlights. The entire band spent a lot of time hanging out with their fans in the bar after the show and they were genuinely appreciative of the people that showed up.

The download link is here. As always, please share, but share the link to this post rather than the direct Mediafire link. Enjoy!
