MetalPixie, I was at the Summerfest and Chicago shows too. My 17 year old son was there too but he was out and about with friends. Cool that your son had a blast (you too!).

I think a couple of dates are already in the tour info area. 

Edited: No, they're not, they're in the News section.

Took my 13-year old son to his FIRST Priest concert at Summerfest in Milwaukee this year!
His reaction was PRICELESS!
Loved that they played "You Don't Have to Be Old to Be Wise" ... totally awesome tune.

Took another friend to Chicago a couple of weeks later (for adult enjoyment of the show ... ahem ...)
What a blast!!!!

I f I could figure out how to see EVERY show on EVERY tour and still keep my house, car, job, and other activities going -
I'd be there!!!

Anyone seen the tour schedule for Japan?
Haven't spotted it on the website yet.
(Not cuz I'm going - just cuz I'm curious!!)

I saw them when they came through St. Charles MO for the 30th aniversary British Steel Tour.  Its the first show I've seen, and it was amazing.  The playlist was really good, and Rock Hard Ride Free was tight.  That's one of my favorite songs by them, and i was pleasently suprised to hear it on their playlist.  I wish they had done "A Touch Of Evil" though.....  I figure going back to Electric on Diamonds and Rust was a really good move, and Victim of Changes got me PUMPED!  Great show, great band.

I saw priest with my grandson at pacific ampitheatre Costa Mesa,CA. They were awesome saw them on august 5,and my grandson keeps asking me when they are coming back to town.He's still in awe how great they were.

my brother and i went to the show in columbia md. wow....this is my fourth priest concert and they still kick ass. my brother doesn't go to alot of shows. when we left he asked me if it was normal for a band to sound better live? it was very cool to see them play british steel. the rage and steeler where my second favorite moment. the first was when rob pointed to the banner and explained how the union jack and the stars and stripes blend together on the banner....united in peace united in war, he then gave our deployed troops a shout out. i came home from iraq in february, that message meant alot to me coming from my favorite singer. it wasn't a political statement, just a statement of support, i thought it rocked.

Thanks, Susan, I will check it out!
[TampaMetalChick] Thursday, August 20, 2009 8:29:50 PM 
This is the first time I've posted here, so still trying to get used to how things work on this site. I've been a Priest fan since '75 & first concert was '82. I thought the Tampa show was amazing. They sounded good in Vegas last year, but this show just blew me away. Diamonds & Rust was the only song I don't think Rob gave 110% vocally. Victim of Changes & The Rage are 2 songs I really wanted to hear & both were spot on. Not trying to be mean, but it is so hot & humid in Tampa. I certainly wouldn't have a lot of energy dressed like they do - I would probably have a heat stroke wearing that heavy material & being under those hot lights. They still rock it harder than most people half their age!

! I feel exactly the same way! I feel fortunate to be able to see them still kicking ass after all these years. I am taking in every single second that I can and treasuring every moment. They are one of a kind and no other band will ever take their place in my heart.

No hate just confused. Thanks for being so open with your opinion. I'd rather have people sharing honestly than trying to conceal messages with hidden agendas. My experience has been a great one, never being dissatisfied with anything Judas Priest has done. I guess it's because once I became a fan (in 1980) I have always accepted them as my favorite metal band and, therefore, left my expectations at the realistic level. Priest has never let me down and I have always felt "privileged" to get to see them...then and now. I'm almost 50 years old, am younger than they are and can't imagine trying to tour at my age. My hat is off to them and the countless other bands that perform so intensely as Priest. I appreciate their fortitude and desire to continue to bring the best heavy metal in the world to the best fans in the universe. Just my opinion!
[tshoffie] Sunday, August 16, 2009 11:16:39 PM 
i know people are gonna probably hate me for this but i was very dissappointed with priest ...having just got back from tampa...the band played well it was just Rob didnt seem all there tonight  he was slow very slow on stage  he seemed like he didnt have any energy whatsoever and in fact in some songs he seemed to stumble over the lyrics..i maybe called Crazy but British Steel is one of my least Fave albums priest has done... dont get me wrong i do like  some of the songs on that album a great deal but i would have prefered to see them play alot more of thier other stuff  from   Screaming for  Vengence   Stained Class    hell bent for leather and others...and especially more from nostradamus   but hey you cant win em all..... and  having to endure the pain that was popevile...for the life of me i dont know why priest even considered them  to open for them
[guidogodoy] Sunday, August 16, 2009 4:04:58 PM 
Don't think it has been posted here yet but I am SO glad that Glenn hasn't broken up Victim on this tour with his solo.

There were comments before on how it "slowed up" the set during Metal Masters. I am glad to have seen them both but prefer the current rendition. The echo effects are just frosting on the cake. Outstanding!
[priestrocker2] Sunday, August 16, 2009 2:13:20 PM 
Priest has opened up with the same song on this tour. Rapid Fire. They are doing the whole British Steel album. After they have completed the whole album they play (not in any particular order) Diamonds and Rust, Ripper, Victim Of Changes, Hellpatrol, Another Thing Coming and Prophecy. I'm probably leaving a song or to out.

The Vegas show was awesome. My ears are still ringing. Priest is as strong as ever. The set list was great. British Steel and so much more.
[tedzo] Saturday, August 08, 2009 11:52:56 AM 
p.s. If anyone is going to the red rocks show and wants to hook up for some brew and medicianal cures,  PM me.
We should be at the parkinglot around 5.
[tedzo] Saturday, August 08, 2009 11:50:59 AM 
A buddy of mine who runs a radio station in nashville showed me his cool razor blade necklace that they were giving out as promo's
Just like the old days, gotta git me one of those!!
Looks like we have the limo-rv booked up- about 20 of us are going tuesday to the colorado show.
Had to burn the setlist just to brush up on it all.
Cannot believe they are actually gonna do prophecy.. got goose bumps thinking about it!
[Deep Freeze] Saturday, August 08, 2009 10:35:47 AM 

Less than twelve hours to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am READY!!! Always great to have the mighty Priest back here in Vegas!! First time I will see them at this particular venue. Kind of odd as it is a bigger set up than usual for them. I did take a peek on StubHub and ALL the floor seats are gone. In fact, there were about twenty seats left period!  I find it hard to believe that the place is sold out though. It is likely that the hotels bought up a load of seats to use as give-aways.

I will be looking for Bundas (Joe) and if the new guy "Jeff Fawcett" reads this, I sent you a PM!!!! Would LOVE to meet another fan and Board member while there!!! We are on the floor so let me know where you and the Mrs are sitting!!!!!!!!!  

As for last year's "Meet-Up" group. Let's make SURE we do it again NEXT tour??!?!?!?!?!

I went to the JP concert in Paso Robles on July 29th. It had been 23 years since I had seen them in Fresno, CA. The Turbo tour. /Anywho, what a great show! I had no voice after it was over and I was in awe...once again. Never has Priest let me down. Always the best shows I have ever seen! Does anyone remember the entire set they played for that show. I know they started with Rapid Fire and I think the second song was Metal Gods. I'm not sure and my short term memory is going bye-bye. Too much partying back in the day! :-)

Hey there British Steel!! How's it going? Did you see the other videos that we took in Cinci? I posted them in the "Around the Horn" thread. There's Freewheel Burning and Victim of Changes (2 parts). 

I've had dreams about Rob too...... but I can't talk about them!

We redid the Rapid Fire video from Cincinnati that we took and reuploaded it to You Tube. Here it is. The camera had a hard time with all the lights and fog though.

We saw Popevil in Cincinnati because I was afraid someone would get our front row seats. Let's just put it this way - they are not my style. I swear the bass player was trying to be Captain Jack Sparrow or some other pirate. Sorry dude, Johnny Depp is the only one that can pull that off!! They were REALLY loud and I couldn't understand a word they were singing....not that I cared that much. Seems like they really cranked up the bass in order to make it "more metal" to fit in with Priest because the stuff I heard on the radio did not sound this way. I didn't like them, but to each his own.
