Hi Rob, Glenn, KK, Ian and Scott!! I would really love to see just one more studio album before you head off into the sunset one more time. Everyone here would love to hear some more amazing work from the greatest metal masterminds on the face of the Earth. We need some more material to go with us to sing on to help alleviate the sorrow brought on from this last hurrah.So please with all of fans on your minds: Unleash something that will shake all of the lands and seas with the massive power of Judas Priest heavy metal!!

|Love you guys, thanks for the awesome decades of Priest songs! Can't wait to see you in concert again! I, like many fans, am still hoping that you will put out one last hard rocking cd of classic Priest. Not sure what happened this year, that you are doing a farewell tour and no new cd, but I'll enjoy what I can, and I respect your decision. And by the way, I liked Nostradamus,it's had many plays on my iPod. I would have liked to have heard more of those songs live, since there are many gems on there, but maybe you took to heart the negative comments on here. Keep in mind, many liked it too. Keep the faith, as I will too, and see you on the road! |

|I was in high school, very much Od'ed on pop music and in the midst of my youthful rebellion listening to 96 Rock in Atlanta and they played You've Got Another Thing Coming by a band called Judas Priest. I didn't know anything about heavy metal really, having grown up with rap and disco and Thriller. Yet the song spoke to me. I bought the album. I even used the Hellion on my campaign for Student Government President at my high school and won. In the middle of inner city Atlanta. LOL A testament to the power. I used it again in college and was elected as a class representative. Priest was my personal youth, my rebellion, that one thing you had that you could use to stick it to the system. Just turn it up. I hate to see the Priest go. But I know all things must come to an end. I guess I just want to say thanks for all the albums the moments the concerts. I'm a true fan, win, lose or draw. I appreciated even the albums others hated, for your willingness to expand the art form and try new things. You never knew what you were going to get with Priest from album to album, song to song, but yet there was the unmistakable voice of Rob as the anchor..and the guitar trinity of KK, Glenn, and Ian to remind you this was Priest. Nostradamus was put down, but you see for those of us who remember all of Priest and not just the 80s, the moments of that album were like the remembrances of our childhood. Not clear as a present moment, but a past seen through the mirror darkly, reminding you of when the world was new. Sure, I'd like one more album, but would that be enough? One more tour, would that be enough? No, never really, I'd want to hold on to those moments. From Rocka Rolla to Nostradamus, I am a child of the Priest..they wrote the soundtrack to my darkest terrors, my freeest dreams, my wandering illusions and for this all I can say is Thank you gentlemen. I plan to try to make the tour and if I do, I know you won't see me, I'll be just one screaming albeit weakened 40 plus year old voice amidst the thousands, but in case you think I'll forget these jewels you gave us all just or cease to be your fan just because tastes have changed.."You've Got Another Thing Coming". I intend to rock the nursing home and they better make sure my coffin comes with speakers.|

|You have to make another album...you can't have a last tour without a new disc..|
|[PRIEST_HAMMER] Saturday, December 11, 2010 3:49:03 PM|| |
|How very ironic but fitting that they call this the "Epitaph Tour." I will miss Judas Priest. But if we were using politcally correct words this only means that this is the last 'world tour,' that wouldn't mean that they couldn't still make albums and do festivals and summer tours in select areas like local bands, etc. But alas I think we all know what they mean when they say they are calling it quits. They may tell us this is the end but I think we all would like to know why they're hanging it up. Plus, what's in store for the members of Priest? Will Glenn and KK be producing music for other bands, managing, etc? So the future is still bright in a way...we'll just be seeing them in a different light as opposed to putting a Judas Priest record.|
I will miss Judas Priest. Losing Ronnie James Dio was hard. But I think it would be even harder to lose a member of Priest if they continued on. Maybe this is the better way. Whatever the reason, I respect their wishes and hope to see them live! I was blessed to see the mighty Priest when Ripper was in the band but have yet to see them with Rob. I will be making the effort this time around.
God bless all of you,
METAL WARRIORS DOMINATE ! ! ! ! ! !

My Dearest Metal Gods,
Judas Priest has been my favorite band for over 26 years. Since Rob got back with the band my life has revolved around Priest. Priest this, Priest that, everything Priest! I’m loving it! The past 6 years JP has been such a huge part of my life. You have no idea how big! I was deeply sadden to hear the news of the final tour next year. But after my tears dried, I became very thankful for all the years of dedication & sacrifices you have given us. And all the kick ass music, of course! Thank you all so much. I have so much love & respect for you all. I know when I’m your age, I’ll still be rockin’ out to The Priest! Also, Thank you for giving us lots of notice about the final tour. You’re going to see me a few times!
*To the people that think the band does not read our messages:
Rob once said in an interview, he went to Judaspriest.com to see what fans were posting for set lists. I don't know if Rob does read these but I do know, he has in the past. He said so himself.

My dear ROB, GLENN, K.K., IAN and SCOTT,
Since I've read this dramatically news about farewell tour, I must say something collapsed inside me. I keep on reading, but still can not believe it! I refuse to believe, my mind refuses to accept. I knew that a moment like this will come eventually someday, but still...so sad! Very, very, bad news...
I always thought you will be forever! For me, JUDAS PRIEST isn't just a band, just some music...JUDAS PRIEST has always been part of my life where I found myself, I reinvented and where I've never been disappointed, not even once. At any time, in joy or sorrow, JUDAS PRIEST was next to me. You can not imagine how important is JUDAS PRIEST for me! I grew up (I'm 33) with your music and with your presence in my life! You see, I didn't say "was very important"! I just can't speak about JUDAS PRIESTin past tense. And this is because you will always be present in our hearts and minds through Judas Priest's monumental legacy!
With your permission I would respectfully ask you some questions:
1. Will you record other studio albums, even if you will never perform live?
2. Will you remain active in the rock world, in other ways?
3. Is it possible, sometime in the future, an album of some famous and timeless hits, re-recorded, such as: Hell Bent For Leather, Breaking the Law (with solo, like in live versions), Living After Midnight, Riding On The Wind, Another Thing is Coming...and a few more.This songs represents the essence of JUDAS PRIEST and it will be great to have them in a new, re-recorded, actual versions! The name of the album, would be, unfortunately, sadly, "Epitaph"...
THANK YOU Rob, Glenn, KK, Ian & Scott for your work and creative power, for your elegance, talent and for your unique and unmistakable style! You leave the world something that will never be matched in any way!
Words can not express anything at the moment!

|First of all I'm happy to see that I'm not the only Italian fan writing.|
I will be in Milan. Only death can deny me the pleasure to see once again JP. i don't say for the last time just because after 30 years I cannot stand it. I know that it is normal and maybe is right. Is better to leave when you're still the best than become a puppet but it was so unexpected.
Well what to say? Thank you for what you've done and for what you will give us on 2011, then everything will remain in our ears and in our heart.
What JP represent for me is something which will be always in me. They are part of my life, their music helped me in the bad period of my life 'til now, and maybe of ever (I cannot imagine on experience once agian the same). Maybe one day I could say why, but it's not the time. No one care about it and it's right. Everyone has it's own problems and don't want to hear other's. I can only say that in 2008, during Gods of Metal in Bologna, when started Metald Gods I cried. It was a so great emotion. It was Incedible and fantastic to stay there, once again with JP.
THANK YOU !!!!

|Totally bummed by the news. Priest certainly have earned a break.....but damn!|

|Saddest news ever! But every good thing must ends, I suppose.I will certainly come seeing you at Milan, probabily I will cry like a baby when you'll salute the fans.|
You have been my light in the darkest moment, I love you, I love your music, to me you are immortals.
Hope your name will last forever.

|I'm not a fool, I agree with Necro that Priest doesn't read these posts but here goes anyway. |
I feel so fortunate to have chosen Priest as my favorite band. Few people can claim to have listened
to their favorite band from their youth into middle age. For this I am grateful. When Rob left I thought
you guys were done. Then you discovered Ripper and new life was breathed into the Priest. I was
disappointed with Jugulator but only from a production standpoint. The music was great, it was the (sound)
of the record I hated.(St. Angerish) The tour sounded the same and I thought the end was near. Then
Demolition. I loved that album. I think it was heavy as f*ck and quite honestly one of your better efforts.
I saw that tour four times and in my opinion those shows rivaled some of the early tours I saw. I was sad
to see Ripper go but so glad Rob was back. I saw the Re-union tour and was a little disappointed. I
thought they sounded better with Ripper. Then came AOR which to me was good at best but not quite what
I was hoping for. I went to that tour thinking that it would most likely be my last. But, you guys kicked ass on
that one and gave me new hope that this could last a little longer. Then Nostradamus. WTF??? Great for some
but man did I hate that album. I almost(purposely) missed that tour(Metal Masters). I decided that day to go
and man was I glad I did. You guys were great and it turned into Dio's last hurrah.I'm glad I saw it. The British
Steel tour showed me that you guys still sound great live and left me desiring at worst, one more classic Priest
album. I so wanted to hear it. Then I sign on yesterday and saw the new site design and the word Epitaph.
Yes! Finally, a new Priest album. Man I hope it rocks! Then I read the post and couldn't have felt more devastated.
I mean come on, you couldn't go out with a bang. You suck. The name (Judas) seems more fitting than ever
because I definitely feel betrayed. I love you guys and Priest will always be a part of my life but this isn't right. Show some
appreciation to the people who have followed you for the last 30 + years. We deserve it. WTF!!! You want us to give
you a buck one last time but you can't give us a one final Judas Priest(heavy metal) album.
OK then. Farewell.
|[gerg71] Wednesday, December 08, 2010 3:28:42 AM|| |
|OK, Huge fan, Love you guys, you rule BUT, BUT......You have to do 1 more album, NO WAY IS THIS A GOOD WAY TO GO OUT!!.......I and many other did enjoy Nostradamus, but lets be honest, it was a concept album....WE WANT A CLASSIC HARD HITTING JUDAS PRIEST STYLE METAL IN YOUR FACE LAST ALBUM....It's gota be the way.....I love love love you guys, my fave band since I was 13, BUT this just can't be how it ends, it makes no sense......1 more classic Priest disc, THEN tour. IT's gota be the way!!!!|
