In November and December 2012, Megadeth blazed hot on the band’s Countdown to Extinction 20th Anniversary Tour, ripping through their entire double platinum 1992 album from start to finish before performing other classics from their recorded catalog. The following September, Tradecraft/UMe released Countdown to Extinction: Live, a definitive document of the sold-out tour. Recorded and filmed at Los Angeles’ Fox Theatre, it was made available in several video and audio configurations, including deluxe Blu-ray/CD, DVD, CD, Digital Album, Mastered for iTunes Album, and Longform Digital Video.
In addition to Megadeth’s performance of the entire Countdown to Extinction album, including the essential “Symphony Of Destruction,” “Foreclosure Of A Dream,” “Sweating Bullets,” and “Skin O’ My Teeth,” the release features all the other Megadeth classics the band performed at the concert, including “Holy Wars” and “Hangar 18.”
