|Do you honestly believe so? With the band members slowly but surely growing older I am not confident that they will be back again, especially if they are unable to stop over in Auckland while on the way to Australia.|

|Please, I think us New Zealanders deserve a proper explanation. What is stopping the band from stopping over in Auckland when they're on their way from Las Vegas to Australia? Sorry, but it just doesn't make any sense to me.
If it was cancelled due to Glenn's health then I have no problem with it as Glenn's health is obviously far more important than a concert but it seems that our concert is the only one to be cancelled (other than the two previous concerts that were cancelled in July).|

I have been a huge fan of Judas Priest for a number of years now and never in a million years did I think they’d come to New Zealand (or even Australia). So when the NZ concert was announced a while back I was stoked and got my tickets as soon as they went on sale so I could get good seats (in the 3rd row at the front). It was not really a huge surprise to me to find out today that the NZ show has been cancelled as I think that deep down I was expecting that it would be as it was really too good to be true. I am currently looking into getting over to one of the Australia shows. However, as the tickets have been on sale for some time already I am now going to miss out on getting a good seat. This is VERY disappointing! I feel that the promoters should have looked into any freight/logistics issues BEFORE they advertised a NZ show. If the NZ show had never been announced then I would have been able to purchase tickets/flights to one of the Aussie shows as soon as they went on sale. Now I am left in the lurch and I am gutted that a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has been taken away from me. I think that the least the Promoters/Band could do is to help the NZ fans by offering up some of the promo seats they have reserved at the Aussie shows for NZ fans to purchase. I hope that this email will be given some consideration as I’m sure that you must be aware what a big deal this is to the fans. Thank-you for your time.

I'M GUTTED!!! NZ show has been cancelled... NOOOOOOOOOO!
I've waited all my life since I was 13 to see you guys.....(41 now!!!) PLEASSSSEE PLEAASEEE COME.
I don't know if I can get enough money together to get to Australia but I'll do my damndest to try.
Plus I'm TERRIFIED of flying!! so it will be a major.
I bought my NZ tickets on the first day they were selling AND I WANT TO USE THEM.....AAAHHRRRGGGG!!!!
If its because of our anal laws and the arseholes running this country than I understand.
BUT I'M NOT HAPPY AT ALL...I'll need some serious alchohol consumption to ease the pain!!! :) Haha

I was looking through your discography and i noticed that stained class was mislabeled stained glass and you need to put down the lyrics for nostradamus just thought i'd let you guys know.
|[Palmer Griffiths] Sunday, July 27, 2008 10:36:26 AM|| |
| Hi fellas ! just sending you this message from Devon a little town outside Edmonton Alberta Canada.I saw you guys last night at the Ozzy Osbourne Monsters of Rock show in Calgary.It was a dream come true! Well mainly because I'm originally from Cape Breton Nova Scotia and unfortunately down there we don't really get the opportunity to see a big act Like Judas Priest. I was blown away by your set and got as close to the stage as I could and sang along to the music. I've been a big fan since I was a little kid.It was a great experience to finally see you live for the first time and was well worth my hard earned money.Regretably when tickets went on Sale I didn't find out till the last minute you were playing Edmonton because I understand you like the other bands at Ozzy's gig were only alotted so much time on stage would love to see you at the Edmonton show do all your stuff but unfortunately I couldn't afford to get tickets after this Show I was at. Anyhow thanks for giving me a great memory and experience and I hope you'll roll through Alberta again soon..Thank you..Sincerely,Palmer Griffiths.|

|I'm a soldier in Iraq and it took me a while to get the new album, but now that i have it I can't stop listening to it.|
I have to say that Nostradamus is a master piece, JP at its creative best. I thank you for the years of dedication and hard work, and for not selling out. You have stayed true to the Fans, the music and yourselves. It would have been easy to pull a Metallica on us all, it is a testament to your charecter and dedication.

Good Morning My Dearest Metal Gods.
Welcome to Calgary, Alberta!
You're finally Back!
It is such an Honor to have you here.
I hope you enjoy your short stay here in Alberta.
It's less than 12 hours until you hit the stage.
I can't wait! See you tonight!
Please be sure to come back to us for the next tour.
Love Tina (QT)

Hey guys,I realize you have a busy schedule. But whats wrong with a stop at The Giant Center Or Hershey Park Arena? I know I'm only one fan talking out,and this message don't mean jack to you. But you guys were there for the AOR tour and it was awesome. I'm not thinking of myself,I'm thinking of the next generation,MY SON!! Theres an open date that you can do it. Do it for the fans. We are the ones that support you guys. I don't care about post Sabbath,Testament,or Motorhead. Its Priest that I want to take my boy to to see. In Hershey,PA............
|[Palmer Griffiths] Friday, July 18, 2008 11:34:40 PM|| |
|Hi Glen,Rob,Scott,KK and Ian ! I know that you may not see my post because I know you're really busy people and you probaly don't have the time to look at this but I can't wait to see you guys in Calgary on July 26th. I've listened to your music since I was a little Kid and Glenn and KK are two of my biggest influences who inspired me to pick up the guitar.Anyhow it's a dream come true ! I never thought I'd see the day that I'd be going to one of your concerts . Anyhow all the best and have a safe journey on your tour..Cheers! ..Sincerely,Palmer Griffiths.|

|Regardless if the "band" really reads this or not, I just wanted to say "Thank You" for FINALLY adding "Dissident Aggresor" to the set list (You haven't played Montreal yet - and there is always the chance that you'll drop it by then, but....). I was on the West coast for the last tour in Auburn , WA when you played "Exciter" - but when I got to Montreal, it was dropped. I have been waiting 26 YEARS to hear this track live...I await to be sedated. Good luck with the tour - regardless if you drop it or not - you managed to shake this list up to a VERY interesting degree!!! (Between The Hammer & The Anvil??? - never would have dared guessed)...|
Keeping The Faith - and Rocking Forever!
|[MASI 73] Tuesday, July 15, 2008 8:51:37 AM|| |
|Hey guys, Florida realy misses you...Miami, West palm, ect... Come down and rock us out sometime. You guys freakin' rock...Thanks for the Metal!!!|

My Dearest Metal Gods,
Since Nostradamus came out, on average, I listen to it 2-3 times per day. I fall alseep with Priest tunes running through my head and I wake up with Priest tunes in my head. This morning I had a very nice wake up to Conquest. I can't seem to get enough time to listen to Nostradamus.
It's A Pure Masterpeice!
I Love It!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Less then 3 weeks until you wonderful men get to make my dream come true. See you in Edmonton! I promise not to bite...Hard.
My best wishes to Glenn. I hope your going to be alright. Get well soon.
|[Screamin' Demon] Sunday, July 06, 2008 5:32:23 AM|| |
|Please come to Australia for the Nostradamus tour. Seeing you're doing a sorta mini world tour now, which could end in late October if you go to South America too, it would make sense that on the Nostradamus tour you do the same arrangements where you tour rather than touring USA & Canada 3 times in 2 years|
|[never_surrender] Saturday, July 05, 2008 7:27:01 PM|| |
|Hi Rob, Glenn, KK, Ian, and Scott. I would like to let you know that I was able to overcome many tough times in life and am now reasonably successful because of the power and the glory of your music. With Nostradamus, you have created a true masterpiece and I keep listening to only this album again and again. Hope Glenn gets well soon and get back to his old glorious self to rip Albuquerque, NM and I will be there to witness it! Keep on 'Delivering the Goods' boys so that my grandchildren ( I am 29 as I write) could also have something to hold on to when things don't seem to be going their way.|
|[Drums01] Saturday, July 05, 2008 2:33:30 PM|| |
|Hey guys! Hope all is going well. Glenn hope your getting better!!!! See you August 27th in Albuquerque, NM USA!!! P.S. Scott Travis is the god of drums!!!!!!! ROCK ON |
|[Danielle] Friday, July 04, 2008 3:23:03 PM|| |
|Well, just a quick note to say I have a new favorite Priest album now; Nostradamus is amazing! I love so many songs on it. Being a fan of dark classical music, like Wagner, some Beethoven, etc, I really loved the operatic feel to the album. It is excellent. Great job guys! This was what I have been waiting for from Priest!|
I am heading to your show in Vegas on September 1st. I will be in the box seat, (3-2) and it will be my first time finally seeing the mighty Judas Priest! I am sure it will blow my mind!
|[spapad] Friday, July 04, 2008 11:50:54 AM|| |

I just picked up Nostradamus and.. WOW! I am totally LOVING it! This is a bold departure from your usual sound and really captures all of your unique talents both vocally and instrumentally.
Rob.. the voice! What more can I say. You are truly talented in EVERYTHING you do! I so admire you!
Thank you for writing "Lost Love". It really touched me as I am going through a terrible time right now with my beloved husband who is battling a grade 4 brain tumor.
I can't wait to see you all in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on July 27th at the Shaw Conference Centre! I have been such a huge fan of yours for so many, MANY years and cannot wait to see you again!

|I saw the fantastic Judas Priest show in Düsseldorf last monday: really a masterpiece! hope there are plans to performance the whole album "nostradamus" live on stage some day! I guess it would be great stuff to be performed at a location like the Royal Albert Hall..."Nostradamus" definitly is a milestone of Heavy Metal and what it ist standing for! Rob- you are a great singer and performer: I had gooseskin in my mind, when I saw you acting in the role of Nostradamus, in this siver coat of a monc...keep the faith: this concert gave me back so much power and I know it`s always good to be yerself- no matter what the people say! artists (as you may remind: I`m a paintress!), are always some kind of exhiled...that`s why I love this song so much...thank you all for this wonderful CD!, Love, Andrea|

|[Great White] Wednesday, June 25, 2008 4:03:25 PM|| |
|Years back members of the band used to "visit" record shops and radio stations for "mini" interviews and autograph sessions. Now the only way that you can even get close to the band is by paying $350+ to get a signature and picture. No offense, but after all the bills are paid, school fees, gas bills, yadda, yadda, yadda, its really hard to fork over that amount of money. Why are bands like Priest, who I'm sure have enough money from royalties, etc., no longer offering fans the opportunity to get close to them like they used to? |

|One enormous thank you for adding Oklahoma City to your tour, to Jayne Andrews, Bill Curbishley and Judas Priest.|
Nostradamus is a great great concept album. I had lost faith anything would actually come out and come out well done. In fact, "the concept" went far beyond my low expectations and it's a rare treat for me.
I should have slapped myself for having listened to the shit leaked on the web and bitched about the album cover.
I've bought two Nostradamus.
I bow to your wisdom ;)
