Quiet Riot's US Festival Performance to be released

Shout! Factory has announced the release of a very cool live album from Quiet Riot. The band's legendary performance at the 1983 US Festival will be released on a two-disc CD/DVD set on March 27. The performance took place on May 29, 1983. Quiet Riot had released their debut American release Metal Health in March 1983. The band were the first to perform on the US Festival's "Heavy Metal Day" line-up along with Judas Priest, Motley Crue, Ozzy Osbourne, the Scorpions and Van Halen. The band played at 12:10 pm to a crowd of 400,000 people.
As a Quiet Riot fan, this is a very cool release. I've seen bits and pieces of the performance on YouTube but it's great that it will be coming to both CD and DVD together. I'll be pre-ordering this, for sure!
