Presented in a 2CD lift-top box, Countdown to Extinction s new commemorative edition pairs the remastered original album with a 1992 concert, recorded live at San Francisco s Cow Palace, which has never before been released in its entirety. The concert audio has been newly remixed for this release. The lift top box includes a booklet with a new liner notes essay by music journalist Kory Grow, a 24 x 36 poster and four collectible postcards.
In November and December of 2012, MEGADETH blazed hot on the band's "Countdown To Extinction 20th Anniversary Tour", ripping through their entire double platinum 1992 album from start to finish before performing other classics from their recorded catalog. Recorded and filmed at Los Angeles' Fox Theatre last December, "Countdown to Extinction: Live" is a definitive document of the acclaimed, sold-out tour.
