One of the band’s few appearances on German soil in the past few years, the set is now available for fans to enjoy, both with their ears and eyes, in the comfort of their own home.
The band ripped through an extremely solid and memorable performance that kicks off with \”This Ain\’t The Summer Of Love” and closes with their evergreen hit, “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper”. In between, the band delivers with hot takes on gems like \”Burnin’ For You,” \”Golden Age Of Leather,” \”Then Came The Last Days Of May,” and “Godzilla”.
