With this metal extravaganza taking place so soon after the 9/11 attacks, Corey Taylor explains to the crowd before a furious Disasterpiece: “Let me tell you something: this tour almost did not happen. This tour was almost derailed because of some very serious shit. They told us it wasn’t the right fucking time for heavy music in America. They told us it wasn’t the right fucking time to come out to you motherfuckers today.”
The frontman continues, “We looked those fuckers straight in the eye and said, ‘Fuck you.’ So you have one rule, motherfuckers, you have one rule. And that is: you will have the best fuckin’ time under one roof tonight, and nobody will say any different. Are you motherfuckers with me?”
And though the nature of filming a gig almost 20 years ago means the quality isn’t great, unsurprisingly it’s clear that the crowd are more than willing to oblige. Enjoy…
The full setlist was as follows:
2. People = Shit
4. Get This
10. New Abortion
11. The Heretic Anthem
12. Spit It Out
13. Wait and Bleed
