Streaming Live, Right Now: System of a Down’s First Ever Performance in Armenia
Today is the final day of System of a Down’s seven-date European tour. But it’s more than just that: it’s the first time the band has ever played in Armenia — all four members are of Armenian descent — and it’s just one day before the 100th anniversary of the Armenia genocide, which the “Wake Up the Souls” tour as a whole commemorates. Tonight’s show will be a very emotional one for the members of the band and for Armenians alike on many, many levels.
The free show is taking place in the Armenian capital of Yerevan, but thanks to the wonders of the Internet you can stream it live right here, courtesy of Rolling Stone. The action kicks off at 8:30pm local time, 12:30pm in the Eastern U.S. and 9:30am on the West Coast. Watch it below.
