Gallery: System Of A Down kick off world tour in California
Los Angeles quartet unleash monster 35-song set at former home of LA Lakers
System Of A Down kicked off their Wake Up The Souls world tour with a show at the 17,500 capacity Forum in Inglewood, California.
The Los Angeles band – Serj Tankian (vocals), Daron Malakian (guitar, vocals), Shavo Odadjian (bass) and John Dolmayan (drums) – are using the 14-date trek to commemorate and raise awareness of the 1915 Armenian Genocide.
The band will also play a free show in the Armenian capital of Yerevan on April 23. It’ll be the first time the band will have played in their homeland since forming in 1994.
It looks like fans attending the London date at Wembley Arena are in for a treat on April 10, as the foursome’s set featured no less than 35 songs taken from their five-album career.
