Notes:
  • 'Diabolus In Musica' Tour.
  • An unknown guest(s) joined them on stage to provide backing vocals during "Mind" and "Darts".
  • Broadcast on Westwood One Radio's "Absolutely Live - High Voltage" at least three times (06/29-30/2002, 05/03-04/2003 and 11/26-27/2005).  All versions are censored and songs fade in/out with varying levels of "fake" crowd noise.

Review:

System of a Down hit the stage first with an extremely energetic set.  Although the crowd was not at full capacity, those who were there, were certainly into System of a Down’s aggro sound. They opened with an intense rendition of "Suite-Pee" that had the crowd going nuts. They then proceeded to rock the house for the next 35 minutes. System of a Down are definitely going to make their presence known in the years to come.
