Here Is The Footage From Chino Moreno Of Deftones Performing In An Icelandic Volcano

You may recall hearing recently that Chino Moreno, lead singer of Deftones, would be performing from inside a volcano during an Icelandic music festival. Sure, the rest of the band wouldn’t be joining him — although Deftones as a whole did perform during the festival as well — but still, it was a concert taking place inside a volcano. Well, the festival took place this past weekend and the world’s first public gig inside a volcano has officially happened with thankfully no one being burned alive.

There were 20 people who were able to get tickets for this one of a kind show, even for the price of a little under $2,000. They had to travel 2 1/2 miles, either by walking or by taking a helicopter ride, and then they took a six-minute elevator ride down 400 feet into the dormant Thrihnukagigur volcano.

There, they watched Moreno play three songs, a Morrissey cover, a David Bowie cover, and Deftones classic “Change (In the House of Flies).” An Icelandic singer-songwriter opened the show for him. So, in the end, it may have seemed like an awful lot of effort and exertion for a very brief concert, but again, it was a concert happening deep inside a volcano. A volcano! As a life experience, this would probably be pretty hard to beat, so getting a few songs from Chino Moreno would just be a nice bonus, especially if you are a Deftones fan.
