MACHINE HEAD performed their classic debut album, "Burn My Eyes", in its entirety on Friday (Nov. 26) at the Manchester, U.K. stop on their "World Turns Blue To Gray" tour. According to one attendee, "They said it would be the only time they are doing it on the [European] tour. They said it was because ever since they came to Manchester on their first tour it had always been sold out, and that Manchester had always stood by them even when other places waned. So it was a big 'thank-you'. They also said they had kept it secret and told nobody, [not] even the press." The entire show was reportedly filmed for possible inclusion on the group's upcoming DVD, tentatively due sometime next year.
