Shot by Gary Davis in his "Rock-Steadi-Cam" style – a single camera that's fully involved in the concert, giving the viewer a first-person perspective of what it's like to be on-stage with the band, 3-Ring Circus: Live at the Palace – October 21, 1995, contains more than 78 minutes of the band’s performance and on-stage antics on full display in a sold-out setting. The concert’s sound was remastered and remixed from the live audio culled from the original “warts n’ all” mono source soundboard mix, camera audio and audience mic.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the formation of Sublime, a band that earned legions of devoted fans during a vital career that inspired countless other artists. Sublime performed their first official show on July 4, 1988 (sometimes infamously referred to as the “Peninsula Riot”) in Long Beach, CA and went on to release one of the most publicly adored and critically acclaimed hit albums of the 1990’s.
