|The likelyhood of them doing a Painkiller anniversary tour is very low to none, maybe some special releases but no tour...i mean do you really think Rob can hit those notes in 10 years from now? he is a metal god, but he struggles now, ten years i dont think they would do that. and defenders probably not either. because although that was an amazing album they are doing Brtish Steel because how ground breaking it was and how it mad them superstars! haha, and i dont think they would want to revisit every single good album theyve ever done! lol |
but in 2 more days i will see my first Priest concert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

|I saw them last night at PNC. They were brilliantly awesome, to say the least! They never disappoint. Totally incredible to hear British Steel live, as this was the album that made me a fan. Rob wore denim for the album, then wen into his usual jacket changes with the rest of the songs. The crowd was very into it, and seats were no longer needed when they appeared. Since reuniting, I've seen them 5 times, but this one was special, as my Motown music loving wife of 32 years finally attended. She, along with my daughter loved it, and had a great time. Added to the set were Hell Patrol, The Ripper, Victim of Changes, Nostradamus, Freewheel Burning (when he rode out on the motorcycle), and finishing with You've Got Another Thing Coming. I may hve missed one or two, but I'm still on a 'high' and wish I could see them again tonight at Jones Beach. Priest, Priest, Priest, Priest, Priest, Priest!!!!|

|There is a question to be asked--and I'm sure someone already asked it, butT I wasn't informed of the answer, so I'll re'ask this -- and if you, Judas Priest, or any other fan has any insight into this, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE!|
30th anniversary of 'British Steel' means a commemorative tour to be performed of the album in its entirety live. Neat. NOW . . . what's the likelihood that some other albums made in the '80s or, well, 'Painkiller' will have the same attention given to their anniversaries? The idea Judas Priest came up with for this tour is stellar, but if they had the same attention given to 'Defenders of the Faith' or 'Painkiller' (really any one besides 'British Steel', to be blunt) I & many other will go CRAZY in excitement! Well . . . let me know what the chances of that would be. I realize it may be silly to ask at this point of the tour, but here's a shot anyway! :-)

Coming, coming coming!

|A couple of quick observations IMO: on the tour setlist so far that I have been able to hear live via torrents. Once again IMO:|
1) Metal Gods does not have the power as it had on the last tour, period.
2) They should have dumped Rock Hard Ride Free & kept Eat Me Alive. EMA absolutely killed on the last tour, RHRF is way past its prime.
3) The best songs from the British Steel Set are easily: Rapid Fire, Steeler & Old To be Wise.
4) The setlist is too short. They should have added at least 2 additional songs. Especially with the traditional BTL, LAM & YGATC already there....
5) Great to hear the electric version of Diamonds & Rust again! No sleepy ballads on setlist; I am glad they gave Painkiller a rest.
6) Finally, no songs from Stained Class/HBFL or POE leaves a huge void...

|I was there too. You are right and I was wrong. I don't know what I was thinking. Concert was awesome, had to drive 2 hours home to Fort Wayne, and then I posted my review at 12:30 in the morning having to get up at 5:00 a.m. to go to work. |
Now I'm thinking about driving to Chicago, Cincinnati, or Clarkston Michigan to see them again. Maybe I'll get the setlist right next time! Sorry for the delay in replying.

well ill be seeing them for the 1st time in 8 days now!!!!!!!!!
|[lilmac] Monday, July 06, 2009 10:49:04 AM|| |
Pretty simple- Halford is simply concentrating on the song and/or using the teleprompter in the process. He does give it 100%, don't believe me? GO SEE THEM LIVE!!! Last year we saw the KC show and then Phoenix (where he resides part of the year), where in the desert he feels right at HOME. He absolutely tore it up! The bottom line is this- if you like PRIEST, go see 'em NOW while you still can see one of the finest hard rock/heavy metal bands of ALL TIME!!!
After listening to the Priest since 4th grade- 1977, I can tell you this- there ain't nothing like JUDAS PRIEST!!!!\

Somebody said earlier, that Rob was better this tour and not hunched over in one spot during a whole song. I saw a video on youtube, i think it was Hellrider maybe, but Rob spent most of the song hunched over, it was weird i didnt know if it was part of the act he was putting on with the song or if he was hurt or sumthing? lol

|Rob Halford has to pace himself when he sings live. He has to conserve energy. He's got to make sure that he lasts until the very final note. He's got the hardest job out of all the other guys. He does a damn good job and I thought the last DVD was fantastic. "Painkiller" is enough to rip your vocal cords.|
