  • Location / Somerset, WI, USA
  • Venue / Float Rite Amphitheatre @ Float Rite Park
  • Event / Edgefest 6 Festival

The first show by the band in this village.

The first time as this venue.

The venue is located in the centre of Somerset, WI which is a village within St. Croix County near the Appel River.

It was opened in 1981 and was listed on event posters at the time as the Float Rite Amphitheater.

It is now known as the Somerset Amphitheater and was expanded in 2011 to 2013.

A two day festival with Lep appearing on day one. The first live performance promoting the 'Euphoria' album and first show since April 1997 in Puerto Rico at the end of the 1996/1997 'Slang' tour.

Buckcherry cancelled and Lep started their show earlier as a result.

The short setlist included the live debuts of new songs 'Promises' and 'Demolition Man'.

Joe sang a small part of 'Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)' as a joke before 'ROA'.

Hole guitar player Eric Erlandson reportedly wore a black 'Pyromania' T-shirt during their set. Courtney Love also added a line from PSSOM to one of their songs and told a local DJ she used to strip to the song.

A decent quality audience filmed video exists from this show.
