I would absolutely love to see an entire performance of this CD. Realistically, I don't think it would work here in the States (I can't speak for Europe). Definately, though, they should do a couple of big Nostradamus shows, then as mentioned earlier, release a live DVD/CD set of the whole thing!

Yes, I saw them do that tour in England. Whilst AMOLAD is an excellent album, it was a mistake to pay it all live. It went down ok, but not great

I would fucking kill to see a full blown production of Nostradamus here in the States!  However, it remains to be seen if Priest would be able to in fact, do that.  To do so, the logistics of it all are super immense and that means the ticket prices for the concerts will be what they were (or slightly higher) for the MoM Tour.  And if it's going to be pricey in the US, what does that say about Canada, Europe and all of the other places JP would land?

Nostradamus live would be amazing. That's the difference between a concept album and a regular album it flows intro one song bassically and NEEDs to be performed in it's intirety because it's a story.

That's why 'Priest are not immediately doing the new album all live. Iron Maiden did their entire album live right after it was released, so it ain't a surprised that fans were scratching their heads. Instead, 'Priest are doing a cool Priest Feast tour to get the fans reinterested into 'Priest and to listen to their new album, and are giving fans a total of 6 months to get to know the new album. By January next year, I'm sure a lot of people will largely know the new album, giving way for them to rock out to the songs when the whole thing is played live.

They might be able to pull it off in another country, but not in the states. It was not a hit when IRON MAIDEN did it. I was there, and about three songs into the show Bruce tells us they will be doing AMOLOD in it's entirety. The crowd booed. Someone near the stage flashed a sign ( play the classics ),and Bruce ripped it up. That can be found on youtube. I enjoyed the show and liked this cd (AMOLOD) from begining to end. I would see PRIEST do Nostradamus in its entirety, no doubt. Will it be successful here in the states? Time will tell, cause they only played one song and a minute and a half intro last night, where  was the rest of this great cd?

I cant wait for them to play the whole thing live, it will happen next year i think.

i dont think they should play it every show like Iron Maiden did just a few one off big shows & record it for DVD.

Nostradamus live DVD/CD awsome.

I can tell you right now that my wife would camp out over night for tickets and buy them for everyone she knows. She has never been a Priest fan, but after one casual listen to their new album is now obssessed with it, and listens to nothing else. Shes now flying to Sydney with me to see them, even though they only play two songs off it. Actually, its probably close to being my favourite album of theirs now to. I agree its aften a mistake for bands to play whole albums live, but this I would love to see. Beefed up with a string section , keyboards , revolving stage, multimedia - the whole nine yards. Live at Albert Hall. Fantastic. By the way, My sister and Brother and Law live in Kent, small world!

Not a good idea at all.

I think half the audience would walk out or go to sleep anyway.

On a serious note, I've never been in favour of it by any bands. I don't like Nostradamus at all, but even if I did, it would be a mistake to play all of it. 

I reckon bands touring with new albums should play around 5 songs from it and then play other material
