Unearthing a concert that captures one of the most influential bands of the 1990s standing on the cusp of becoming a multi-platinum household name, UMe, Geffen, Gasoline Alley and Skunk Records have announced the upcoming release of Sublime’s 3 Ring Circus: Live at the Palace – October 21, 1995. Set for release on June 18, 2013, the package marks the first-ever complete Sublime concert to be officially released on DVD and CD. This new release also celebrates the 25th anniversary of the seminal Long Beach, CA band, who performed their first official show on July 4, 1988 and went on to release a string of critically acclaimed hit singles. In the process, they earned legions of devoted fans during a vital career that inspired countless other artists.
3 Ring Circus: Live at the Palace – October 21, 1995 catches the trio of late frontman/guitarist/songwriter Bradley Nowell, bassist Eric Wilson and drummer Bud Gaugh in top form before a packed house at the legendary Palace in Hollywood, CA. Sublime tears through 27 songs, including their hits “Date Rape,” “Badfish,” and “40 Oz To Freedom,” as well as covers of classic songs that reflect the band’s broad stylistic range of influences (“54-46 Was My Number” by Toots & the Maytals, “House of Suffering” by Bad Brains and the Grateful Dead’s “Scarlet Begonias”). More than 78 minutes of the band’s performance and on-stage antics are on full display in a sold-out setting, with remastered and remixed multi-source live audio culled from the original master tapes.–Glide Magazine
