You all need to get a life, stop wasting your lives on a message board. But if you must waste your life at least read the whole thread and find my original point before commenting on it.

There is a person on here claiming that he sat on a bus with Rob and his 180lb body...

I don't need to stop liking Priest because I made an observation.

I am the only one on this entire board that showed any concern for the guys health. All the rest of you would have let the guy die and say stupid things like. "Rob gave it his all til the end."

I don't know why I need to show a picture of myself or my gut.

If you bothered to look I got that picture off this very site, it took 3 seconds.

Hey Rob Ward.....if Rob Halford's waist bothers you "that much"...then maybe you ought to think about stop liking Judas Priest?

I don't know what else to tell you here.  Thats like saying...."I saw Priest last night "BUT"......Ian Hill's hair line is receeding.....

.......and everybody is looking at each other going "....yyyyeahhh....sssoooooo is there a point to this?   Not trying to rile you up

but thats just how it sounds. Nobody in here is denying that Rob has a spare tire around his do I.....(a small one but its still a spare tire"!!)LOL!!!

Soooo...what's your point?

Anyway, so Rob's getting hefty these days.  Rather see this than him being a junky/alky/washed up burnout.....

BTW, Halford looks pretty bad ass in that pic there.  Thanks for postin' it.

Oh, my god!! I can't believe you haven't figured it out yet!! Shame on you!!!

Don't you know? Rob's gut is actually a compartment where he hides all his sexiness!!! During a concert or a photo shoot, all the sexiness oozes out, making him not only a Metal God, but a very sexy one!!

You can clearly see his gut in this picture...

Check It Out...

After he came out on the bike he had a long jacket covered with silver studs. Durning the song he took the jacket off and tied it around his waist. He had a black tank top on underneath that was more like the top of a jump suit you would see a wrestler wear. I wasn't close to the stage but I was under the pavilion and the big screens were very visable. He looked fat too me, he looked like he had man boobs as his chest did not look firm at all. I weight 200lbs and I'm 5'11" and he has a much bigger gut then I do. His arms are also big, not muscle but fat big, no way he weighs 180, he hasn't seen 180 since Turbo.

Oh, I agree, he has always leaned forward while singing, especially the long hight notes. But it was very obvious in Detroit that something happened during the show because one minute he was fine and then after he rolled out on the bike, he was really limping. I had snuck into the front row by then and I could see the pain in his face. He is such an amazing performer though and he NEVER allows anything to stop him. I don't think you would have even noticed it if you were even a few rows back. Just seemed like it was either his back or his right leg. I can't imagine doing what he does at all and then throw in the fact that it is 100+ degrees on that stage with all the leather on. I'd pass out, no doubt about it! You have to be in excellent shape to perform the way he does!

Ya know there are so many conditions we suffer from with time it would be hard to pinpoint by just his actions. He could have trouble with Siatica or a host of other things, but he has always leaned forward to sins higher since a long time ago! I think he gets around pretty good with a couple of cows worth of leather on, under those hot lights, and at his age! I couldn't do it!  By this time it could also be just plain fatigue.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by HOT ROCKIN' METAL GODDESS from Monday, August 24, 2009 6:13:26 PM)

I agree with you Jacklone. Rob might have a little bit of a belly but he's pretty rock solid other than that! Most men his age would KILL to be in his condition, better yet alot of men past 30 would kill to be in that shape!

I completely agree there! 250??? I DON'T think so! Yes, he is packing a few pounds around the waist, but he is not that big. I'm wondering is he has back problems. In Cleveland he wasn't dancing around, but he seemed fine. In Detroit the next night, he was the same as Cleveland but then toward the end, he came out limping. A week later in Cincinnati after a day off, he was dancing around the stage like the Rob of old. Weight is NOT his problem. Wonder if when he got flipped off the bike in Toronto he hurt his back and it's been a problem ever since? Driving around on the tour bus can't help the situation either if it is his back.

i'm sorry to say R. Ward,  Rob Halford is NOT near 250 lbs! i actually got to sit down on the bus with him and talk in cleveland, he was in shorts and a t-shirt (checkout the pic's on the 'Nostradamus Everyday' thread), if he weighs 180 thats being generous.  what you saw onstage was 80 lbs. of wardrobe....

You can always search for online reviews of that show.  Half the time there's a setlist in the review.

You mention the setlist was a little different but you would not give it out.

Why is you reason?  It is the lst damn show of the tour!

Plus that is your opinion.  If we do or don't want to know theset list we could choose NOT to read it.

Please since this is JP fan site, I'd say that you are the odd man out in thinking that we do not want to know the "different" set list.

99.8% of the people on this site want to know set lists.

So how was it differen then the prior shows?
[Rob Ward] Monday, August 24, 2009 12:10:21 AM 
I was at the Merriweather show and it was totally awesome. The last time I saw Priest (AOR) the whole band kept leaving the stage but I do think Rob did it much more then he did before. He's certainly less active then he used to be. He also needs to join a gym as he's put on quite a bit of weight which is probably why he's not as active, he's got to be close to 250lbs + or -. Although his voice is in prime shape, I believe it would get much better if he lost weight. If I was his close personal friend, band mate, family member I'd be concern for him. At his age touring and playing in hot humid place like Merriweather he could suffer a heart attack. Anyone from Judas Priest management, band, family member or Rob himself reading this??

Their performance would be nothing short of spectacular for young guys let alone guys in their late 50's and early 60's. There were a couple of miss cues but I guess that's to be expected at every concert. I thought the beginning of Victim was played too slowly. I don't like their guitar tone anymore, they use them god awful effects processors and the punch of the guitars just isn't there. Had they had been playing through tube amps the guitars would have been more in your face the way I remember from them in the 80's.

I liked the set list as it was somewhat different then what was posted on here. For the record I'm against giving out the set list, it's like telling someone how a movie ends before you go to see it. The lights and lasers were great as well. I bought 2 T-Shirts, The Sad Wings shirt was my favorite but it didn't have the dates on the back so I bought one Sad Wings and one British Steel.

I also missed Popevil because my girlfriend had to work. But I guess that's no big deal as I never heard of them until they started touring with Priest.

Kix is always awesome to see. If you like the Stones only harder you'd love Kix. Steve Whiteman is a class "A" front man, his style has been stolen from the likes of Brett Michaels and other 80's hair band singers. He's always been an active front man, even at his age which I don't know what it is but he's probably in his 50's he's non stop. He engages the crowd and keeps everyone into the show. I've seen him several times with Kix and his side project "Funny Money" and he always has some little shtick that he's does throughout the show. I once saw him and he would tell little short stories and things that he did while he was wearing the paints he had on that night. He said things like he was wearing those paints when they filmed a video back in the 80's, or he had sex with two girls when he wore those paints. Just something he could come back to every once in a while. That's what someone was referring to earlier about him grabbing his crotch, it's just his thing he does for entertainment purposes. After the first or second song he pulled a banana out of his paints and made a joke about it, and then he went from there.

Overall a great show I'm glad I went.

As I see it there is only one date. Then they take a much deserved rest.
