ANTHRAX play first show with DAN LILKER in 40 years: see setlist and video

Kicking off their South American tour

Anthrax played a fistful of classics with founding bassist Dan Lilker at Mexico City's MXMF The Metal Fest over the weekend, marking the New York thrash vets' first performance with the four-stringer in 40 years.

The Saturday (April 13th) set at Mexico City's Olympic Velodrome was the South American tour opener for Anthrax, and featured Lilker digging into songs he'd help co-write in the early Eighties, like Fistful of Metal's "Deathrider," but also ripping through classic cuts from after his tenure, including "Among the Living," "Caught In a Mosh," "Indians" and "I Am the Law."

As previously reported, Lilker is filling in for longtime bassist Frank Bello, who is temporarily stepping away from the band for personal reasons. Bello had replaced Lilker in the Anthrax lineup ahead of 1985's Spreading the Disease, though Lilker kept playing with guitarist Scott Ian and drummer Charlie Benate in crossover unit S.O.D.

Anthrax's South American tour continues tonight (April 15th) in El Salvador and caps in a couple weeks in Brazil. Lilker is also booked to perform a pair of U.S. festival dates in May
