Released July 14 1998 by Capitol Records The Beastie Boys fifth studio album Hello Nasty sold 680000 copies in its first week of release debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. It went on to win two Grammy Awards at the 1999 ceremony and it also marked the addition of DMC champion Mix Master Mike to the group’s line-up. The Beasties had begun touring prior to the album’s release as 1998 was the third year of their Tibetan Freedom Concerts which had started in 1996 and in ‘98 were taking place at Washington DC’s RFK Stadium over the weekend of 13th & 14th June. Following these events the Beastie Boys moved across to Europe playing a couple of festival dates in Germany and a one off at London’s Brixton Academy. On 26th June they were in St. Gallen Switzerland for that year’s Open Air Festival performing a stunning set that was recorded for FM Radio Broadcast transmitted both across Europe and synched across a number of US stations as well. This CD features for the first time The Beasties’ entire set performed at this central European show marking as it does the first live release from this period of the group’s career and one of the first recordings available to feature Mix Master Mike on stage with them.
