I was really looking forward to this one as they were celebrating 30 years since the release of the classic Among The Living album by playing the whole of the album from start to finish.
The show was sold out a week before the gig so had to risk one of those tout ticket websites luckily I didn't have to pay extra.
The first half of the show mixed some old and new material. The show started with A.I.R from the album Spreading The disease. They also played Madhouse and surprisingly Aftershock which I've never heard them play live before. They also played Be All End All from State Of Euphoria album as well as some new songs including Breathing Lightning.
After the interval was the start of one of my favourite albums of all time played in order from start to finish. You know the classics but it was great to hear some songs that they have not played for years or even at all like Skeletons In The Closet, One World, A.D.I and one of my favourites Imitation Of Life. To finish off they played Anti Social as an encore.
What an amazing show Anthrax are always a great live band anyway so I wasn't expecting anything else really. A friend I was with actually see them at the Hammersmith Odeon show in 87 on the ATL tour which was released as a video (lucky bastard). That was the video that got me into the band so amazing to see that 30 years on it still remains classic enough to play the album live. Was a great night
