|Saw Priest last night in NJ 07/11/09. The biggest highlight for me was Diamonds & Rust. Priest really put this on another plateau and there is a reason it is an encore. What a treat to hear the electric version again OMG. The British Steel set was fierce with Rapid Fire, Old to be Wise & Steeler as the standouts (IMO) and also The Rage was a pleasant surprise. The Ripper always does it for me...Prophecy seemed out out of whack with all the old stuff being played. They incl. Hell Patrol rather Rock Hard Ride Free, and Halford sounded great on it. The band was flawless especially KK going crazy on Victim & The Rage. The ho-hums were: United & Living After Midnight. Priest should have incl. proly 2 more songs to make it complete, but not playing anything from Stained Class HBFL or POE left a little bit of a void. The retro stage & the old style getup were very cool/nostaglic and it brought you back to the old days for sure. A buddy of mine wants me to fly down to FL in Aug. and see JP in St. Augustine. Im already looking into flights. It was that good and Priest should not be missed on this tour! MpleSyrp |

|I have been watching a few of the video clips and reading the comments here and something occurs to me; Now, is it just me or are there far more "meet-ups" this time around?? It seems to me that more and more of us are getting together for the shows. I have to say, THAT is really a wonderful testament to our family and this Band! It is just so gratifying to see so many members making plans to get together and the addition of so many "newbies" to these gatherings! How absolutely remarkable! I cannot recall such participation in years gone by.|
For all the silliness and disagreements we experience here, it sure is great that we can all find others to join with and celebrate this wonderful Band! The memories we are creating today will live on in these Threads for years to come! The friendships we forge are bonds of steel. Who knows??...there may be an all new Faithful Defenders spawned from these meetings!! How great would THAT be?? To see another group of members get together and record this timeless music?? Oh how I would LOVE to hear THAT!!!!!!!
Well done, my friends!! Keep it going! Keep it alive!!!

|Hot Rockin MGWhen you saw them, Def Leppard, a few years ago did they play anything off High N DrY? Pyromanie??
JUst curious because I would love to see them again & take my daughter but they only played one High N Dry song during Hysteria and then I saw them on story tellers a few years later and Joe Elliott said they no longer play High N Dry & it was not fair to the new band members.
I wrote them off after that and was pissed off!!! Those of us who F ing bought High N Dry gave them the opportunity to produce Pyromania.
Pyromania was my 1st concert(at 14)
I would love to know, thanks Edited at: Thursday, July 09, 2009 12:33:17 PM
