VIDEO: Extreme preview Money from Pornograffitti Live 25

Extreme have issued a performance of “Money (In God We Trust)”, as the latest preview to their forthcoming set, “Pornograffitti Live 25: Metal Meltdown.”

Due October 14, the package captures the group performing their breakthrough 1990 album, “Extreme II: Pornograffitti (A Funked Up Fairy Tale)”, in its entirety last year in Las Vegas on the occasion of its 25th anniversary.

The Boston band’s second album peaked at No. 10 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to US sales of more than 2 million copies based on the success of the No. 1 single, “More Than Words”, and Top 5 follow-up “Hole Hearted.”

Directed by Brian Lockwood, the “Pornograffitti Live 25: Metal Meltdown” package includes a Blu-ray, DVD and audio CD of the complete concert that was filmed on May 30, 2015 as part of an event headlined by Twisted Sister.

“It was a great thrill to perform Pornograffitti in its entirety,” says singer Gary Cherone. “Some of these songs were never played live before so we had to go back and relearn them for the tour. The album was a watershed moment in the bands career…it’s when we came in to our own and it will always be special.”

Extreme are currently on tour in Japan, where they are performing side three of their 1992 album, “III Sides To Every Story”, in full for the first time ever.
