The gig will be released on DVD:

The band shot a DVD at The Fonda in Hollywood for release this summer via Shout! Factory, alongside special guests Joe Satriani, Robbie Krieger, Blackalicious, and DJ Logic. Particle also debuted fresh songs including “Give,” which opened the show and reinvented Particle originals such as “Triple Threat” and “Simulator.” They also dove into each of the respective new guitar player’s catalogues and debuted Combe’s “The Sweeper” and “Losing It,” as well as Metzger’s “Smile” and “It’s So Hard (Believe Me).” The show also featured a stunning encore of Metzger and Combe reinterpreting The Verve’s “Lucky Man” before finishing off with an all-star laden version of “Superstition.”
