|Thanks Shirls. The camera is a Nikon D300 DSLR, in this case with 18-70mm zoom.|
As to Rob's bandana, it's skull and crossbones.

|Those are stunning pics MD. What camera did you use?|
Senior Rocker: I'll second Gibbo UK on the skulls. They look like skulls to me.
One of the students where I work saw the boys at Wembley and thought they were fantastic, it was the first time he'd seen them. He really went to see Megadeath, but thought they were sh*t. He's now a confirmed JP fan.
Now I have to talk him into leaving me the JP T-Shirt he bought when he leaves the halls at the end of term

|I think the design on Robs bandana is skulls Senior Rocker.|

|Nice one MetalDog, I think I speak for all fans in our area in thanking you for at least mentioning the Symphony Hall|
to the band as a possible venue for Nostradamus concert. Fingers crossed, cheers ! Have looked at your pics again and am struggling to work out what design Rob had on his bandana.
Gibbo, your point about Rob's boots being too big may explain why at times he seemed inhibited when lumbering around the stage, I thought maybe his boots came up over his knees which stopped him from bending them fully, but perhaps I am wrong.
Thanks again MetalDog Edited at: Friday, February 27, 2009 1:07:58 AM Edited at: Friday, February 27, 2009 1:18:00 AM

I also agree for bands making money from merchandise,concerts and cd sales especially bands like Priest.Bands like ACDC and Metallica who just churn out crap an do a tour just to top up their bank account is out of order.
£2-00 for a soft drink It is about time they were sorted out,but if people still buy them at that price they will still laugh and rub their greedy hands.
Rob looked good in his bandana,his boots looked a bit too big
Metal Dog hope they like your pics.

|I'm sending Rob and the band my pix from Birmingham via Rob's sister. I've mentioned Symphony Hall but don't count any chickens... |

|Some seriously relevant comments by all re the venue/gig rip-offs. I don't think I mind the band and immediate crew members getting my spondoolics even if the merchandise is also over the top price-wise; it's the hangers-on and all the other w*nkers who bleed us of our hard earned cash when all we wanna do is see our heroes. The camera restrictions rule is just one big f*ckin' joke; there are usually enough press snappers at gigs to represent mags etc & I don't think the band actually cares that we take personal pics; so wots the problem, its a bit over my head ! |
By the way Gibbo similar prices in Brum for a bottle of piss and £2 for a small bottle of tango - at least they did not insist we tip the pop into a plastic cup. Also £8 parking, a lot of fans were upset by that because it was supposed to include a bus ride in & back after the gig but we got pissed off with waiting for a bus so just walked over-took 10mins each way-parking should be Free when you have paid over £40 for a ticket.
Change the subject what did we think of Rob's bandana, couldn't quite make out what the design/logo on it was. SR. Edited at: Thursday, February 26, 2009 1:37:21 AM

|Funny thing is...... It was not the band... that had this rule.... But the MTS Center..... When I was back stage.. Both Kenny and Scott asked me If I took any during the concert they wanted me to e-mail them to them.. Like for the Steel Mill ect.. and I know Scott likes to have the pics out on his My Space.... When I told them about the camera rule... They were suprised.. And thought it was riduculous.. LOL... Kenny thought it was not fair to the fans.. LOL @ Scotty.. Everytime I took a pic he had to check and scroll through my camera to make sure the picture came out...( Good Grief charlie brown) I think he had my camera more than I did... ( Now I know who took the picture of the bag on the floor...LOL) I got home and went to print some of them for my brother to take home.. and there was a picture crooked of the wall, a garbage bag on the floor...LMAO I think he had his finger on the button...LOL|
Oh well Live and learn Eh guys??

|On saturday i managed to get my camera into Wembley.I first tried by puttig it down the front of my jeans,bearing in mnd my camera is an SLR with 85mm lens.That did not work.I then tucked it in the back of my jeans.There was no ay i was going to get it through security.I would tell you but it would give the game away ...|
At Wembley Arena they search all bags then frisk you.
You are allowed to take compact camera's in to concerts but not the SLR pro type with lenses.I agree this is BULLS**T.I only take them for sharing and not to sell on.
My Wembley pics were taken from high up in the stadium anyway.

Here In winnipeg No drinks from outside the arena/Mts Center.. and no Cameras allowed.. I smuggled mine in .. In a empty pack of cigs..LOL People that were caught taking pics during the show.. Had thier cameras taken away, and you had to go claim them after the show... I would have loved to take pics during the show.. I had clear view of the stage... But there were securiy giuards every 10 feet,,,,,, other than camera phones, which dont work that well inside the stadiums.. I saw 3 people, just around me get thier cameras taken away... Boo Hoo to that!
I didnt take mine out until I was back stage..LOL
They were also making people who were wearing chains ect.. or anything spikey/heavy metal -ish.. ( if thats a word.. ) lol.. Leave thier stuff outside to re-claim after the show.. They were worried people would use them as weapons...
If they didnt comply,, they were not allowed in..

|at Monsters of Rock in Calgary they alowed you to bring in a bottle of water, if it was sealed. max 2 L (2 quarts to the americans)|
they said they would alow a snack, but did not. the beer line was 2 hours!!! I dont know what the prices were, I went in the 40 minute burger line, good, on price point with what you get at a sports event.

You are right there Senior Rocker,it all boils down to money.It is the same in Sport,people getting ripped of at stadiums.The fesivals are the worst places to go now.In my early festival days at the Donington Monsters Of Rock you took your own beer into the arena.At the Wembley Arena they were charging £3-80 for a beer which looked like p**s.
It looks like the small venue gigs are a big no for big bands like Priest,but i still have little hope they might do them very soon.It is me who is boring you now

|Gibbo your point about smaller venues is a valid one but I suppose it is not cost effective from the bands point of view and maybe we would not even get a "full" show or entourage. The NEC in BHam, my nearest large venue,is one of the worst places, one big rip off - just doesn't do it for me & I have seen a number of bands there, whereas somewhere like the Civic in Wolverhampton, right in the middle of JP roots is an excellent hall. Maybe its all about how much dosh can be made to cover overheads; sorry to be so boring................................no I'm not an Accountant!!.|

|What a great night.All the bands were brilliant.|
I would have prefered a standing ticket as the seat i had was way up in the gods,only problem is my knees will not hold me up anymore.The crowd was great,saw a few getting carried out at the front.They burnt out before Priest ht the stage.
I do hope Priest play smaller venue's in the future.
Took some pics...........www.carlgibson.vox.com
I will try and post some more pics soon.

|Had a fantastic night at Priest Feast Wembley 21/02/2009. Bumped into to 2 blokes from Reading in the Bear pub on Wembley High Road. We were chatting whilst watching the Man U v Blackburn game before the gig. I was the shaven headed bloke with the Polish mate. If you post on the notice board could you get in touch?? My name is Steve Noon you can contact me via my email - [email protected]. Just wondered if you got some good photo's etc. Cheers!!! As a lost my camera in the pub and the one on my phone was shite!!!!! One of you was wearing a Megadeth Tshirt and your mate was wearing Motorhead!!!! Also if any one has ant pics they could send us it would be most appreciated!!!!!|
