(hennemusic) Judas Priest are marking the 30th Anniversary of their 1982 album, "Screaming For Vengeance," with an expanded version of the release, which is due on September 4 (one day earlier internationally).
"Screaming For Vengeance – Special 30th Anniversary Edition" will feature not only the remastered original album plus bonus tracks, but also a live DVD from the 1983 US Festival show, filmed in San Bernardino, CA on May 29, 1983.
The US Festival was intended to be a celebration of evolving technologies; a marriage of music, computers, television and people — organized by Steve Wozniak, formerly of Apple. The "Screaming For Vengeance – Special 30th Anniversary Edition" live DVD was filmed at the second, and what turned out to be last, US Festival in 1983. Headlined by Van Halen, Sunday was the Heavy Metal Day, billed as "the day new wave died and rock 'n' roll took over." It set the single-day concert attendance record for the U.S. with an estimated 375,000 people. more on this story
