EXODUS, HEATHEN, ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT and SKINLAB are among the bands who played at a concert in celebration of EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt and Lisa Perticone‘s upcoming wedding. The event took place this past Saturday, September 24 at Avalon in Santa Clara, California, and featured additional appearances by RELENTLESS REVOLUTIONARIES (a.k.a. DEATH ANGEL), MIDNIGHT CHASER, SEVERED FIFTH, ANGERHEAD, MAD AT SAM, DEADLANDS, ANTI-MORTEM and COFFIN HUNTER. Making a surprise appearance with EXODUS during the concert was the band’s former guitarist Rick Hunolt, who left the group in 2005 in order to focus on his family life.
Video footage of the some of the “Holty Matrimony” performances can be seen below.
Holt has two daughters from previous relationships. Perticone has a teenage daughter. The two are currently residing in Pinole, California.
Holt has spent the last few months filling in for SLAYER founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman who in January contracted necrotizing fasciitis, likely caused by a spider bite, and has been undergoing surgeries, skin grafts and intense rehab since.
EXODUS‘s latest album, “Exhibit B: The Human Condition”, was released in North America on May 18, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.
