While a fine review, it is also a misnomer that the stand-out number of the night was "Nostradamus."

They played "Prophecy."

Epitaph: Rest in Priest
Johnstown, PA – 11.19.2011
 
Massive chains adorned steaming smokestacks. Colossal pyro singed the first four rows. Smoke cannons belched to the rafters. A thousand lasers dazzled our brains. And none of it was necessary once the first note of unbelievable volume reached our ears.
 
If they’ve lost a bit of agility, the initial number proved Judas Priest has lost no talent, skill, or edge in four decades. Rob Halford’s vocals rang crystal clear and strong; high notes carried to the furthest reach of the stadium seemingly without amplification. His ability to sustain would shame a distance runner’s wind. Glenn Tipton’s quiet confidence carried his skilled lead notes in waves over the floor. The refined candor in that smile we so easily recognize engaged every fan near the front.
 
While Ian Hill held post at the rear, his bass came through powerfully, as did percussion from Scott Travis. Richie Faulkner, new to the line-up this year, supplied athletic antics, riffs, and a huge grin. Obviously having the time of his life, he gave us the time of ours.
 
The chronology led us through 40 years of heavy metal, from its birth to present with JP there every step of the way. Sure, the most hard-core Priest fans know every song from every collection from every decade, but this history of album covers on the big screen and insightful commentary between songs brought all of us into the creative mindset.
 
Despite several bogus set lists circling the World Wide Web, the night included all the crowd-pleasers:
·         A tongue-in-cheek, “Turbo Lover.”
·         “Hell Bent for Leather” replete with obligatory chrome.
·         Full fan lead vocals in “Breakin’ the Law” (but that’s okay because everyone from veterans to Biebers knew the lyrics).
·         Raucous crowd response in “You Got Another Thing Comin’.”
·         High energy “Livin’ After Midnight” as a closer.
 
Halford bestowed upon “Diamonds and Rust” a haunting ballad lead-in, and equally haunting credit to writer, Joan Baez.
 
But the stand-out number of the night could only be “Nostradamus.” From sound quality to cadence to glam reaper costuming, they nailed it, hands down.
 
Epitaph is defined as a phrase written in memory of someone passed. It’s a misnomer in this case – Judas Priest will never be past-tense.

I have to know if the U.S. tour will continue in 2012 after the leg in Japan?
     Us fans in the state of Wisconsin sure hope you make it somewhere further north than Hammond Indiana some time before you end the Epitaph tour. I've seen the band in the city of Milwaukee, outdoors at the Alpine Valley Ski Resort (west of Milwaukee, also famous as the site where we lost Stevie Ray Vaughn) and I've caught the band a couple of times in Green Bay, Wisconsin as well. But I have to see the Epitaph tour.
   By the way, I'm a 55 year old guitarist/vocalist that still covers some of my personal favorites like "Victim of Changes", "Beyond the Realms", & "Dreamer/Deceiver" in my band and at every appearance we make in my statewide area.

I've been a Priest fan since I was 9 years and was deeply fascinated by their music and style as I turned 11

I was raised up with heavy music in the background and it was my father who always played Judas Priest. I salute Priest playing their songs on youtube.
I have all their CDs DVDs (even rare) concert T-shirts and LPs and a pick from glenn.But unfortunately I have only seen one of their concerts and it was the farewell concerthere in Denmark to Copenhell.
I stood right up front along with the guys and we drew so much attention from the stageso it ended up glen and rob walked to the edge of the stage right in front of us (this was just after a song) pointed at us and said "you guys fucking rocks "
It was the wildest experience and I look forward to read about all your experiences with Priest 

Hard rocking greetings from Denmark
Nicolaj P

I agree completely. I realize that huge world tours have to pick and choose their sites but... No shows within 1300 km of Winnipeg? Not even Minnesota?! For an idea of the scale we're talking about, put a circle with a 1300 km radius over the British Isles... How could the heart of the continent get left "out in the cold" like this?

Meanwhile St. Louis and Chicago are only 475 km apart. There's one show in each and one (Springfield) in between.

Why not one show in the Grand Forks Alerus Center or the Fargo Dome? That would give fans in Manitoba, North Dakota and South Dakota and chance. I'm sure there would be many in the crowd from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Iowa too.

Priest has given me a lot through the years, and I'd love one more chance to 'pay my respects' as it were.

To the Priest...

I'm sad and disappointed about the lack of US / Canada dates.

What about Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada - eh?!

No Minneapolis date either!? Com'on man!

Going to all corners of the planet...I don't think so...

I have to travel to Calgary 12+ hours from Winnipeg or Edmonton 15+ hours from Winnipeg in order to see you guys!?

Here is to wishful thinking that you may still come to Winnipeg. I saw you for your Nos and Angel tours. It would be awesome to see you one last time.

Hey we got our NHL hockey team back the Jets...go Jets go...

No disrespect intended, I'm just disgruntled.

See you on the road, RedCooper

Hi to all Judas Priest Fans
I have been a huge fan since stained class came out. I have seen one live show at the austin opera house
it was the loudest show I have ever been at since.
I have most of their music on CD's and listen to some almost every day and know how to play some too.
I am a musician, play a jackson guitar on a 1971 marshall super tremolo. I would love to open for them
some time, could happen maybe, lol
good to be a member, right on!!!
Keep rockin 
Mike

Your cousins story is inspirational and a true testament to her strength and courage! The music of Judas Priest has inspired and helped so many of us in different ways.

MEET & GREET
I am writing you today in regards to my cousin & the Houston concert scheduled for October 15, 2011. As my cousin & I talked about the tour I knew there was no way she would miss seeing you play in her home town. You see she has been a fan for many years & you are her favorite band ever. In the 80’s she almost lost her leg when she was tragically hit by a car & was in the hospital for monthS. During that time she was a teenager & was (still is) madly in love with your music. So, she took every metal magazine & plastered Priest pictures all over her hospital room. You see this concert is going to be special for me because I get to go with her to see her all time favorite group. I was wondering if there was any way for the 4 of us to get a Meet & Greet? They were able to salvage her leg by using other muscles in her body to give her the strength. It’s also her husbands birthday on October 15th. It would be another life changing event she would never forget if she could meet the band. My husband & I are able to go due to her. I am disabled & unable to work, so she invited us to go with them. Out of all her friends, she choose me. It’s going to be a special day remembering all those posters in her hospital room & how your music saved her. I’m so looking forward to seeing her the happiest ever. Meeting the band would be the best...if at all possible. Please, anything you can do?

 Hi there to everyone. Great concerts in Spain of the band. New stuff to comment, I just have heard "Irresistible Force" de Jane´s Addiction (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0kB3Rl5pQ4) and its chorus "sounds" quite familiar to me... Do u also think that it´s a copy of "Alone" (Nostradamus album)?

Well..... it's a honor to me to write in the official Judas Priest site.

Thanks for create your awesome music, during a lot of years. It will last eternally.

I wish new albums, yes, certantly. But, it depends on you, Judas Priest. ;-)

You are one of my top bands, it is very important to me. Your impressive albums, your special, matchless music...

In addition, you know, you are one of the most importants bands, from your musical quality.

I think that "Defenders of the faith" is the album that I like more, but it depends of the day.
Important: I go to see you in the 29-07-2011 Spain Epitaph festival, for my first time. OOOoohhhhh, it will be a good day!! really!!

The important for  me is your music, your world. Thanks a lot for to exist !!!!  to cheer so many years in my life.


Long live to metal !!  Judas Priest !!!!

SUMMARY:
 
2 JULY, THE TRIP DAY TO BUCHAREST, in the morning, I said good bye to my family parents and I leaved my home town Arad, together with my friend Gianny, with the car of my brother in law, passing in our way to Bucharest through some big towns such as ‘Deva’, ’Alba’, ’Sibiu’, ‘Valcea’, and through some beautiful resorts such as, ‘Calimanesti’and ‘Caciulata’ ,and through some big rivers as ‘Olt’, and beautiful mountains, as ‘Zarandului,’ Metaliferi’, ‘Trascaului’, ‘Poiana Rusca’, ‘Cindrel’,and ’Fagarasului’, and in the night we arrived in Bucharest, where we was waiting at the ‘Crystal Palace hotel’ my cousin that gaved us the key at one of his apartments ,which was located on the street with the ‘Erbas hotel’, where we should stay in the first, so we go to at the apartment, but in that night too, my friend Gianny, calls Lenti, to inform him that we arrived in Bucharest, and that man call us to meet him in’ Heaven and Hell’ rock club, so me and my friend, get the subway, and went to this location to meet that man, and there, at a Pepsi glass, we talk about the details about the Judas Priest show, and he also gave us the tickets for the show, and i told him about my pack I prepared for you Rob and i asked him to give to you and also we ask him to ask you Rob an autograph for us, and in the end, we took a taxi and returning at our apartment when we rest over the night until the show day.
 
3 JULY, THE SHOW DAY, in the morning, me and my friend prepared for the show, we prepared the show clothes, and I prepared the pack for you Rob, and in the afternoon, we took the subway and went to the show location, when we met Lenti, and gave him my gift pack for you, and a box with some CD-es for Rob to sign in for us, and then me and my friend, entered in the show location, where we walk little to see the other fans, and look at the Judas Priest merchandise, and waiting the entry of Whitesnake, that I saw them for the first time here, and which gave us a beautiful show, with some of them beautiful songs, including my favorite “ Is this Love”, which David Coverdale writing it for his ex. wife Tawny Kitaen, and a song they sing special for us Romanians, after that he kissed our flag, and after a break, we expecting the entry of Judas Priest, you gave us a special show, in which you offer us the well known set list of 21 songs, including my favorite Blood Red Skies, a show in which you,the old members, Scott, Glenn, Ian but special you Rob, and even the new one, Richie, still surprising us with your technical abilities, a show in which they surprising us with your new cool lights effects, fires, smokes and chains, and your cool changes of scenary of stage, changes of instruments and changes of your clothes from a song to other, a show in which your letting us to sing alone all the ‘Breaking the Law ‘ song, a show in which you used some new vocalize with us to test our Romanian musicality, a show in which you shows us again your hot Harley to not forget that your was the first who took a motorcycle on stage, a show in which you Rob didn’t forgot to mention that magical words ‘ I love you’ ,in finally a show beautiful to remember and hard to forget, so that is why after the show, when we took a taxi to return in our apartment to rest , it was impossible to do it, and I should do it, if I knew what will happen in the next shock day.
 
4 JULY, THE SCHOCK DAY, in the morning, me and my friend, prepared to visit some places in Bucharest, so we took some subways and all the day we visiting some locations, such as the most big rock stores, the’ Music Box’, ’Midola’, and ‘Rock Shop’, then the ‘George Enescu composer Museum’(which was close), the ‘George Enescu Atheneum” (which was close too), then the ‘Peoples House‘( which was close too) ,but we see the ‘Palace Hall‘, the ‘Writers Union’, the Art Museum’, the ‘Odeon Cinema’, the ‘Press Theater’, the ‘Romanian Academy’, the ‘Romanian National Bank‘, then Military Army’, and some hotels, such as ‘ Radisson’(where sit Madonna when she came in Romania),’ ‘Roberto’, and ’Capitol’, etc, and in the afternoon, on the way, my friend got a call from Lenti who call us at his D&D firm to tell us about the things he resolved us related to Judas Priest, so we took a taxi and go fast at his firm, where he met us but just for some moments, and he told us that in the show day of 3 July, he met you Rob at the hotel, and he gave you my gift pack and you said ‘Thanks ‘ and took my gift in your room, and also Lenti told us that in the day of 4 July exactly some minutes before he took you the airport, he met you and ask you to sign an autograph for us on one of our Cd-es, so Lenti gave us back our Cd-es and told us that our Nostradamus hard bound book is signed by you Rob for us, but when we looked inside of this, the autograph was signed just for my friend name, and for me NO, and when we asked Lenti why, he told us he don’t know why you Rob didn’t signed for me too, and Lenti told us that when he gave you to sign for us, he didn’t observed that my name is not there to ask him why, and when he look inside and observed that my name is not there, was too late to meet you to ask him why, so that was the only answer we got, then we came back in our apartment, when we resting over the night, a night that I will probably never forget, cause I was sleeping so hard, with lots of questions in my mind about why Rob didn’t signed for me, and I woke up in the night crying, over a bad dream about what happened ,a thing that put me in my mind a dilemma day.
 
 
5 JULY, THE DILEMMA DAY, in the morning, I wake up crying over a bad dream I got with you Rob, and when I realized that all what happen yesterday, the fact that you didn’t signed for me was true, I was destroyed, psichicaly and phisicaly, and I didn’t had lust to do anything, and neither to go in town, I done just the usually things ,I eating ,I do a bath, and I slept all the day, and also I tried to find the all possible variantes for which you didn’t signed for me, i even arrived to think that maybe this Lenti forgot my name when he asked you to sign for me too and he asked to sign just for my friend because he knew him more long time ago than me, and maybe Lenti wanted to be diplomatic with us and told us he asked you to sign for both, and if is that, then I can be just upset on Lenti into considering that will be enough if on the autograph will appear just my friend name, or maybe was your fault, maybe when Lenti asked to sign for both, maybe you FORGOT about my name, and you remembered just my friend name, and in that case, I am upset on you in being such superficial, or maybe you COULDN’T signed for me because of the staff which was around you and they didn’t letting him do that, in special if around you, was Jayne, that I remembered what things she said to me about you, when she asked me to not call you, to not write you and to not search for you anymore cause you will never call me ,or write me, or search me, you will never give me a sign, or an autograph, and in that case I just can have a bad opinion about how your management rule your own life finally, or maybe you didn’t WANT to sign for me, cause you are a gay man, and in that I just can be upset on your way to judge the peoples over their sexuality, or maybe you didn’t signed for me cause you thought that from some reasons I don’t DESERVE your signature, and in that case I just can be upset on what blind you can be at all the signs from one of his most dedicated fans, me, or maybe you didn’t signed for me cause you though that you will want to SEND me on my home address a gift with your signature or maybe you thought that you will want to sign one for me PERSONALY one day, but is too hard for me to think at this being possible, but anyway you rejecting into sign for me, made me to wonder if you accepted finally my gift pack or you throw it, and if you also accepted, I don’t know if you liked it or not, or maybe you neither received it, and maybe Lenti wanted to be diplomatic with us again, and told us that he gave you, I don’t know, are lots questions that will remain without answer forever, cause Lenti can’t tell me more, and you can’t answer me personally, anyway, any glad I was about the autograph that my friend took from you, its seems that from all what happened to me, he had not the same feelings for his own autograph, considering that if I didn’t got one, he didn’t want his own too, and he destroyed it and get it fire, a thing that really shocked me at my friend, a thing that nobody could do it, anyway I slept hard that night, knowing that next day I will must to do some to forget about this thing, maybe a visitings day.
 
6 JULY,A VISITINGS DAY, in the morning, I tried to do some to forget somehow about all what happened, and with my friend , we got some subways and we went to visit some other places in Bucharest, such as the ‘George Enescu composer Museum’, where are placed all the musical souvenirs from his personal and musical life and where I was more than honor to write some things in their guest book, and also we saw the ‘Composers Union’ which was founded by same Enescu for to sustain the young good composers, then we saw the ‘George Enescu Atheneum ‘ where is the room where he done most of his concerts and also where is keeping every year the ‘George Enescu International Contest’, hoping that the next day to arrive again in Sinaia Spa, in ‘Cumpatu Ward’, at ‘Luminis House’ ,the memorial house of George Enescu, the house he building for his love life, the Maruca Princess, and hoping to see the ‘Peles Castles’, the most luxuriant we have, where George Enescu was invited to play and where he met and falling in love with his Maruca Princess, with which he married after a controversate love history ,over years of correspondence and secret meetings, because they didn’t had the right to be together, even if they love each other, and also hoping that one day to arrive for the first time, to visit his natal house in Botosani town, in Liveni , where he was born, and also his funerals in France, Paris, at Per La Chaise, with the hope that one day, someone, a person with a good intention but enough rich and enough powerfull, to take Enescu’s tomb from French people who stoled us and didn’t want to gave us back, and will move it in Romania, how he always dreamt, anyway then we saw the ‘People House’ , the most luxuriant building in Romania, which was founded by and where lived our most bad president Nicolae Ceausescu, then we saw the ‘Lion Statue’ and the ‘Marriott Hotel’,where you sit, and in the evening we went at the Sun Plaza ,the most big market from Bucharest, when we buyed us some food for home, and we came back at the apartment where we sleep over night until the next another visitings day.
 
7 JULY, ANOTHER VISITINGS DAY, in the morning, me and my friend left the Bucharest ,but because of to not come back home with such sad memories, we decided like in our way back home ,to stop in other places too, so we passing through Sinaia spa where we visiting the ‘Cumpatu Ward’, the ‘Luminis House’ ,the memorial house of George Enescu, the most beautiful fairy tale house, and then the ‘Peles Castles’, the most luxuriant we have, then we saw the ‘Bran Castle’, the most horrified castle, knowing as the Dracula Castle, which was build for our Vlad Tepes, which was known as our most horrified president with the bad and rich peoples, but right with the good and poor ones, and from where he got the name of Dracula, and in the evening we arrived on ‘Transfagarasan Road’, where we camp on the same camping over the night until the back trip day.
 
8 JULY, THE TRIP TO ARAD DAY, in the morning, me and my friend, passing with the car over the ‘Transfagarasanu Road’, one of the most beautiful roads in the world, until to ‘Balea Lake’ and ‘Balea Hut’, and there we let the car down, and we climbing up on the ‘Fagarasului Mountains’ until at 2479 meters almost of 2507 where is the ‘Buteanu peak’ and from where we watching to the ‘Moldoveanu peak’ of 2544, the most high from our country, and from finally I felt most close of Rob, and in the afternoon we came back down and we visiting little the surroundings and in that day too, we starting the travel home, in our way to Arad passing through the same beautiful mountains and the same towns, but for me these didn’t had the same beauty like always, and in the night we arrived at home, and I slept with my mind and my soul such empty like a lost someone dear, and knowing that next day I must to wake up from a fairy tale, and see about my ordinary life.
 
CONCLUSION:
 
Your Judas Priest show here was a unique one, my moral stress and my financial efforts to arrive at your show was huge but deserved all your show, but my memory from this show will remain a sad one forever and I don’t know if you Judas Priest will come again in Romania to re-place this sad memory with a happy one, but if from a absurdity you would come again , I can just to pray to God to keep you all and you Rob healthy enough to can meet you but if you will never come, then definetly this was my last chance and I lost it, because of some peoples faults, or…maybe because of you Rob, that you wanted to give me a sign to go and see of my life, and stop dreaming in all my fucking crazy dreams that I had into meet you, into collaborate in music with him, into be with him, and refusing me the autograph to makes me feel like shit and trying to tell me shame on me for all what I dare to dream about you, or maybe you just wanted to do it in another way, into a gift back to me for my birthaday, or at a personal meeting, which is impossible for me to believe, or maybe was just God fault, which is not always right with the people who deserve it, and maybe he just didn’t want that happy thing to happen to me, and that makes me to feel sick about all this life, since the only power in this world and which is God, took me my only dream I ever have, I just wonder if will ever be someone to answer me about what happen there in fact, but probably I will never can get this answer cause Lenti is too diplomatic to tell me more, you Rob are too mysterious to tell me some, God is too confuse in his signs, and my friends can’t answer me, but finally you Rob are the only who can give me an answer, and I wonder if you will give me one, small, any bad it is, ever?

It's a small country, and you got 8 dates. What is wrong? Can't stand to go further than across the street for a show?

"Believe it, or believe it not!":     The latest comments from the band - Metal Hammer, July 2011:

(on KK's announcement)

IAN - "Disagreements between members of the band? That never happened before with us - ha! To Be honest, when you're in a band as long as we've been this sort of thing always happens. In the past, though, we've always got over such issues."

ROB - "We had no clue beforehand that KK felt this way. I recall exactly how I felt when he broke the news. It was as if the floor had opened & swallowed me. My mind was going off like a box of fireworks."

IAN -
"We'd all agreed this was the way it should be (the last tour). But (it was) his voice that was loudest. I wouldn't say he was behind the plan, but he seemed keener than the rest of us."

GLENN - "I think part of the problem was that he'd had a few injury problems, with his wrist in particular. But it was still something that none of us expected."

ROB - "None of us understood why he was doing this. We were all stunned. I remember lying awake that night, wondering what had happened, why things were going so wrong. But I think Glenn, Ian & I all felt that it would blow over, KK would change his mind & we'd get back on track."

IAN - "That's the reason we never announced this in the first place. We all went round to see him, all phoned him & did our best to persuade him to come back."
 
GLENN - "We wanted to give him as much time as we could. In the end we came close to messing everything up, because we gave him too much time. There was never the slightest indication from KK that he might come back, but we held on to the notion that he must return. It couldn't all end like this."

ROB - "My initial reaction was that it was over for Priest. It surely was the end, as we couldn't go on without KK. But then it dawned on me that this band is a lot bigger than any one member; we had to carry on."

GLENN - "We had a meeting & a choice to make. Either we stopped Judas Priest right now, or we looked for a new guitarist. Thankfully, all of us agreed that we owed it to ourselves & the fans to carry on."


(& on KK returning)

IAN - "He's not coming back. I've talked to him a lot recently & I know he has no interest in doing anything in music again. This won't come up. It's over."

GLENN - "The door will never be shut on him. If KK says he's up for a reunion, then we'll never dismiss it."

ROB - "I would welcome him with open arms. I know it would be difficult for Richie, but... when I returned [in 2003], Ripper graciously handed me the microphone & bowed out."

So I noticed that between November 16 and November 22, there are no shows planned. Do you think maybe, on your way from Toronto to Montreal, the Priest could possibly squeeze in a visit to Scotiabank Place in Ottawa? If I said Please? Thank you!
