Copernicus: Live! in Prague (DVD)

Copernicus is one of the few artists to play behind the Iron Curtain back in 1989. This is a live concert DVD from his show at Praha Slavia Stadium on June 17th, 1989. This concert drew on tracks from the first three Copernicus' albums: "Nothing Exists," "Victim of the Sky," and "Deeper."

The band Copernicus is made up of Copernicus, on lead vocals, and providing all lyrics; Larry Kirwan, on keyboard, guitar, and vocals; Mike Fazio, on guitar; Tom Hamlin, on drums; and Dave Conrad, on bass.

The nine thousand fans in attendance filled the air with screams for this rare opportunity to experience Western rock n' roll. The excitement is clear from the first loud guitar chords and blasting drum beats. The fact that they got away with playing a song like "The Authorities", during the dying flames of communist control of this Eastern Block state, is as remarkable as watching the fans devour the notes and chords with enjoyment. They were hungry for Western heavy metal. The split screen experiences filmed on this disc were years ahead of their time, especially in this part of the world.
