Fan-filmed video of ANTHRAX‘s July 30 performance at Heart Health Park in Sacramento, California can be seen below.

ANTHRAX kicked off its North American tour with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY on Tuesday, July 26 at Van Buren in Phoenix, Arizona. As was the case with the Sacramento show, ANTHRAX‘s setlist included the addition of the John Bush-era track “Only”, which hadn’t been performed live since 2011.

“Only” originally appeared on 1993’s “Sound Of White Noise”, one of four albums Bush recorded with ANTHRAX during his 13-year tenure with the band.

Current ANTHRAX singer Joey Belladonna, whose most recent return to the band was officially announced in May 2010, was originally the lead singer of ANTHRAX from 1984 to 1992, and was considered part of the group’s classic lineup (alongside Dan SpitzScott IanFrank Bello and Charlie Benante),which reunited and toured during 2005 and 2006. His voice was featured on over 10 albums, which reportedly sold eight million copies worldwide.

In a 2016 interview with KazagastãoBelladonna said about his exit from ANTHRAX in 1992 before officially rejoining the band in 2010: “It’s sucky that I was gone for that long, you know what I mean? I never understand that. It does bother me [that I was fired], even today, ’cause… We didn’t miss a beat and I think we would have done… I can’t imagine what we could have done along the way. No offense to anything else, but I just didn’t see any reason for it.”
Asked if he had heard any material ANTHRAX recorded with Bush during the time Belladonna was away from the band, Joey said: “I don’t listen to it. I have no interest in it. I don’t know… Something about it. It doesn’t really appeal to me, for some reason. I mean, I enjoy that they play the way they do and everything, I just never… I never was interested in it. It wasn’t anything against [Bush] at all.”
