Quiet Riot - Live At The US Festival 1983 CD/DVD Due In March

Following a pair of DVD releases, Shout! Factory has announced the release of several performances on CD from the famous US Festival in California including QUIET RIOT. Spearheaded by Apple Computer co-founder Steve Wozniak, the US Festival intended to be a celebration of technology and culture, with a temporary stage and open-air venue paid for by Wozniak himself just for the purposes of the festival. The event featured Heavy Metal Day on on May 29, 1983 with the aforementioned Quiet Rio along with the following stellar line-up: MÖTLEY CRÜE, OZZY OSBOURNE, JUDAS PRIEST, TRIUMPH, SCORPIONS and VAN HALEN 

Despite the historical value of the performances, the festival was a failure, with two reported deaths at the 1983 festival and Wozniak and promoters losing some $24 million US. Setbacks aside, the performances remain a worthy footnote in rock history, and Shout! Factory aims to memorialize these moments, first through DVD and now on CD. 

On March 27th, the CD/DVD combo of Quiet Riot's set will be released, fresh off the success of their US #1 album, Metal Health.

There is already a Triumph release - though I have not heard or seen it. It would be interesting to see/hear the Van Halen concert. Hoping it is released.
