I’ll be the first to admit that I was disappointed when the recently reunited System Of A Down only included West Coast dates in their recent “warm up tour” for their European festival appearances. So it was nice to see fan filmed footage of their first show since 2006 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, even if it was shaky and not of the best quality. But for those who are as bummed as me about having to wait for SOAD’s return to the East Coast, professionally filmed footage taken from one of the band’s European festival performances will definitely help out.
Professionally filmed footage of SOAD’s entire performance at the Rock Am Ring festival in Nürburg, Germany on June 5 (which aired on German television) has made its way online. The band’s 26 song set has been broken into three separate videos. The first of three can be seen up top, while the other two can be seen after the jump. The filmed performance might not be enough to hold us over until SOAD’s inevitable full North American tour, but it’ll have to do until then. The band’s next festival appearance is tonight at the Novarock Festival in Nickelsdorf, Austria.
