The Details: Back in 1993 the band Living Colour set the world aflame with their debut album “Vivid” and now on the 20th Anniversary of the album’s release they will be performing it in full along with other gems from their repertoire. When this album first hit, one could be assured of seeing the video for the opening track “Cult Of Personality” on MTV several times a day. While the music world was in throes of Grunge, the powerful sound of an all African-American Heavy Metal band was something to contend with thanks to the blistering riffs of Vernon Reid, vocal register of Corey Glover and break down the walls rhythm section of Muzz Skillings and William Calhoun. That being said, I’m excited to announce that thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, PiercingMetal shall be putting some fans into the NYC appearance. Read on below to learn how to participate.
When and Where: Saturday April 6th at Irving Plaza (17 Irving Place, NYC)

Here are a few links to some of the bands work along with their pivotal “Vivid” release. To my knowledge the album has not been re-released as an expanded edition but perhaps the milestone anniversary will find this being the case sometime soon.
