Twisted Sister: Metal Meltdown DVD debuts atop US charts

Twisted Sister’s new DVD, “Metal Meltdown”, has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Music Video Sales chart.

Directed by Brian Lockwood, “Metal Meltdown: Twister Sister Live At The Hard Rock Casino Las Vegas” presents the group’s May 30, 2015 concert at the venue where they topped a bill alongside Extreme, Great White and Skid Row.

The set delivers the live debut of drummer Mike Portnoy with the band following the passing of A.J. Pero from a heart attack two months earlier while on tour with Adrenaline Mob.

The Twisted Sister package is the first in the Metal Meltdown series: Extreme will release “Pornograffitti Live 25: Metal Meltdown” on September 23.

The package captures the Boston band performing the 1991 album in its entirety at The Joint at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas last year on the occasion of its 25th anniversary.

Twisted Sister will wrap up their final tour with a hometown farewell performance at Lakewood, NJ’s second annual Rock Carnival on October 1.
