They will also play favorites from their three previous Platinum-certified albums, "Toxicity," "Steal This Album!" and "System of a
The guerrilla club tour follows last night¹s System's "Soul's 2005" sold-out benefit concert held at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles that commemorated the Armenian Genocide.
