From what I've read and seen on YouTube, he seems different this tour - more the old Rob that we love so much. We will see for ourselves in 12 days, right? CAN"T WAIT!!  You might want to bring both hot weather and cool weather clothes with you. The saying in Michigan goes, "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute because it will change!" Right now it's mid-70's and windy. Could be 90 by the time the show hits, who knows? We can discuss things over lunch/dinner... we will be driving in from seeing them in Cleveland the night before. And don't forget the CD, I can't wait to hear it!! Keep having fun on vacation..... wish I was in Southern California!

Yes, Rob was hand slapping and shaking hands with the front row in I mentioned, he was singing TO the audience this time, not just going through the songs.   I liked the addition of animated lasers to the show.  The stage set itself was simple, but packed alot of punch!

It was cool that there was no opening act...just the mighty Priest doing what they do best:  Heavy Metal!

I honestly believe that he does love the fans. No doubt about it. The man is no fool. He knows that the fans are what keep him paid! It is not so much that he does not care for the fans as it SEEMS that he does not care for the Priest gig. Now, I keep saying this is only an opinion!!! I mean, he may very well be elated to be touring with Priest night in and night out. It just seemed to me that he was going through the motions, as it were. That he would rather be doing something else..or maybe WITH someone else?

He has his own material...a Record company...various other interests. Perhaps he has reached the point where Priest (for him) has run its course? I am not sure and I do NOT want this to turn into some kind of silly rumor mill. It is merely an observation. I hope I am WAAAAAAY off on this! I love the Priest and Rob. I really do. Its just that, during the last few shows I have seen, he did not seem the same.

I know EXACTLY what you are saying. I have to agree with you about the distance thing, but not the reason for it. I have said it many times to people that I really MISS the happy Rob of old, where he smiled and joked with the audience. During the Painkiller tour, he seemed really pissed off.... I wasn't surprised when he left the band. Then when he came back, he seemed to have adopted this stage persona that I don't care for. I never had the feeling that he didn't care, I have the feeling that he was ACTING some sort of role. When we saw Priest in a small venue in Mount Pleasant, Michigan (September 2005), there were times where he completely dropped the act and was the Rob of old. I have to tell you, those moments were AWESOME! He shook hands with people in the audience (there were no barriers), someone came up on stage because you could just walk right up on to it, Rob turned around and smiled at the guy and shook his hand before he was taken back to his seat. He made jokes and smiled a lot. So I think it has all been an act on stage rather than disinterest. 

I know that Rob LOVES his fans and keeps everything they give him. Maybe he had something he had to do and couldn't talk after the show? He is probably one of the busiest guys in the business. I'm not making excuses, just my opinion.

When I met Rob a few years back after the Angel of Retribution tour he was extremely friendly, posing for pics and chatting about a book he was reading on seldom used words in the English language.  This was a very small group waiting in Champaign/Urbana IL after the show(2005), vs a fairly large group waiting after the June 29 2009 show.  Maybe he didn't want to be mauled by a throng of over-enthusiastic fans?

On stage, he seemed more animated than the past few tours, previously spending most of the show hunched over in one spot or moving around slowly(probably due to the weight of the costume?) but this past week he was full of energy and singing to the audience, not just singing the songs.

Interesting. You know, I do not mean to start any kind of rumors or whatever but, I have been saying privately for sometime now that I do not think Rob looks as happy as he used to when they perform. Those of you here that have chatted with me in private will recall me mentioning this more than once. It is as though he is reaching that point where he has done as much as he feels he can with the Band and has interests or desires elsewhere.

Of course, he may have just not been feeling well in Indy but I truly have noticed a "distance' in his eyes and demeanor the last couple times I have seen a show. Most recently, I noticed it in Vegas but no one seemed to agree with me. I acknowledge that I could very well be wrong on this but he sure seems to be disinterested..or at least not as enthsiastic as he was in years gone by.  Just my humble opinion.

Glenn was having some technical difficulties in Indy as well.  He seemed quite peeved and his tech was scurrying back and forth trying to get his guitars lined out. 

The Rage:  I noticed that all members of the band seemed to really enjoy performing "The Rage".  There were alot of smiles up on stage and they were throwing shapes with extra enthusiasm.  They really looked like they were having a blast!  I think it was the best song of the set.

Rob:  A disapointment after the show.  Rob went straight to the bus and left without acknowledging anyone waiting to see him.  The rest of the band spent quite a bit of time mingling and autographing and posing for pics.  Scott was the standout to the faithful waiting for a glimpse, he came and went several times before and after the show taking a few minutes each time to hang out with his fans.  He was showing off his female companions to the small crowd outside, enjoying the attention!  He later said they were just friends and family.

Here's the link to my Indy pics, some are quite's hard to get the guys to stand still long enough on stage to get the good pics!

The show in St. Charles was my first Judas Priest concert and I gotta say it was pretty awesome. I had no idea this was the second date on the tour, no wonder I couldn't find a setlist.  Rob's voice sounded great. I think Glenn was having some technical difficulties on the intro to The Rage which made me sad, but everything else went off perfect. The crowd really lit up after they played The Ripper, what a great song to break away from British Steel. Hoperfully they'll actually come back to St. Louis again next time around.

Saw the (St. Louis) St. Charles, MO show last night after driving in from Kansas City. WOW! Whitesnake was good, but Coverdale's vocals are strained and his range is capoot! Nothing like when I saw him in 1984 ad 1986. Enjoyed several of the Slide It In tracks, but TOOOO much pop crap from there...

Judas Priest DID NOT dissapoint! After seeing them 6-8 since 1984, I would have to say that this was by far one of the most energetic and lively shows I've ever seen them play. Seeing British Steel in it's entirety was absoltely amazing. LOVED seeing Victim of Changes again, Rock Hard/Ride Free was great. Wish they would have played Touch of Evil or some other 70's goods, but the band was truly amazing! Wish I could afford to go out and see them at Red Rocks. That will be THE show of the year!

Go see the Mighty Priest! After 32 years I still LOVE this band!!!!

I have a second row, PIT Center ticket to the Cincinnati show that I won in a Ticketmaster auction.  My buddy bailed out on me so I need to sell this ticket.  I will sell it for the auction price.  If you are interested PM me.
