According to the band, the show featured 16 songs from nine different albums, with a handful — “Harvester of Sorrow,” “Cyanide,” “Through the Never,” “Welcome Home (Sanitarium),” “Whiskey in the Jar” and “Hardwired” all making their 2021 debuts at the gig.

Earlier this month, the band released a remastered, expanded 30th anniversary version of their 1991 self-titled No. 1 album, which surged back into the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart for the first time in 29 years. The former chart-topper jumped from No. 158 to No. 9 on the Sept. 25-dated chart, earning 37,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Sept. 16 (up 397%) according to MRC Data.
