Not that I was worried, I would have liked it better with just the two bands, but what can ya do!
Chicago is a beautiful city! Swam in lake Mich a couple times, man it's got warm and way cold pockets in it's shallows.

|Not according to the venues web site, just Whitesnake...won't matter anyhow...gonna schedule that Monday off work, get myself a nice buzz going...throw on some comfortable clothes and take Lake Shore Drive head'n north, which is an extremely beautiful drive near twi-light and on the ride home, it follows the lake shore from north to south...you have the lit up city on one side and the beautiful lights reflecting off the lake on the other...hypnotic even...I'm not even gonna care, won't ruin my night one bit...hell, I almost feel as if I'm there right now!!! If that shitty little band ruins my night, at age 42, then I didn't prepare myself properly for the show and I ought to just give up going to concerts all together |

|Well, I get the chance to see Priest July 19th, a Sunday night at 7pm...the venue is at Northerly Island, which I've never been to. It use to be an airport for private planes 'til 9-11...after that, the Mayor of Chicago (Daley) decided it was a threat and had bulldozers 'X' out the runways...What I really think I'm going to like is that it will be a hot summer night and the island is on Lake Michigan, should be quite a view...I've heard that the sound and sightlines (for all seats) are excellent...tix are from $25 (lawn) to $99 for premium as well as $30 VIP parking...depending on traffic, it will be anywhere from a 15-30 min. drive...no problem...really looking forward to it!!! Now if they would only put the tix up for sale!!!|

I do not know why a programme for the tour was available.I think it will be down to costing as printing prices ae not cheapThere could have been a poor programme sale on the last tour so they may have decided to give it a miss.

|SueDalglish, I think there has been some misunderstanding Don't think anyone was objecting to the band making a living; indeed we all made that point and over the years I have never felt that I was ripped off by the ticket prices. The Priest ALWAYS put on a great show and never disappoint-I always enjoy the initial mystery of not knowing where & when Rob is going to appear on stage during the 1st number. What I do object to is the extortionate prices venues like the Bham NEC want to charge for a soft drink.....................and a plastic glass of beer that tastes like piss. Not sure why there were no programmes this time round, does anybody else know ?|

I had a fantastic time yesterday in Malmø Arena!
Testament and Megadeth were great, as the day before, but Priest were simply brilliant!!
Same setlist still, but who cares as long as it is played so well. I was in the front row again, right side naturally :o) and IT WAS LOUD!!! Luckily I had learned from my mistake the day before and bought some earplugs ... yes I know Rob, Im not a true metal fan if I wear them ... he he
Glenn was in a great mood, THANK YOU GLENN for making it such a night to remember!!
There was a few mishaps (?) like the sound guy playes the intro to Helion a couple of songs early :o) But it was fun that not everything went like clockwork!!
PRIEST RULES - no one else comes close
|[Vinther] Wednesday, March 04, 2009 9:47:36 AM|| |
|Was at the same show as astarup. It was great, Testament and Megadeth did a good job, but Priest was fantastic! The setlist was the exact same as last year, but I did'nt care. Priest had a fantastic show, and Halford voice was very good (on Painkiller however, he had some problems). The best songs were Death, Sinner and Rock Hard Ride Free|
|[astarup] Wednesday, March 04, 2009 3:12:56 AM|| |
|Last night my friend and I went to see Priest Fest in horsens, Denmark.|
Testament didnt have a very good sound unfortunately, Megadeth was great, fantastic, played their hearts out.
PRIEST WAS PHENOMENAL!
Rob was singing at his best, and in a good humorous (?) mood, talking at/with the audience and singing his heart out.
He said that Priest had now played for 38 years and they are still pissed of ... ha ha ha ... he was kidding.
Glenn and KK great as always, as was Scott and Ian.
They played the same setlist as already listed, however I don't know about the last 4 songs, as we had to leave to catch our train back to Copenhagen.
All in all a brilliant experience, I can hardly wait till we see them again tonight in Malmø, and no leaving early this time :o)
P.S. Sorry no photo's, I didnt dare bring my SLR and my friends camera went on strike ... We'll try to bring hers tonight.

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

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.

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.

|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

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...
