67gemini - see, JP not playing an extended set sucks! The people paid to see Whitenake and JP;  the people that attended your show got ripped off! JP should have played longer or offered partial refunds.

An excerpt from the Miami Tribune interview with Rob:  Here's hopin tonight especially the Florida fans can live up to their reputation!!!    You're gonna be on the DVD ; )  Cheers!!!


Miami New Times: When you decided to [play "British Steel" in its entirety on
the current tour], did you worry that playing one album in order would eliminate
some element of surprise for the audience?

Halford: It's impossible to have a complete surprise now, isn't it?
Unfortunately, that's the way of the world. Everybody's Twittering while they
eat their lunch and while they're sitting in the movie theater, so it's a shame
really. But I also wouldn't deny the excitement that this kind of instant
connection can create. Because you know, no matter how you explain to a fan that
you've seen the pre-show, or seen clips from YouTube or whatever, you can't
really fully understand or experience the true moment until you're there in
person. It's like watching a movie of the Grand Canyon. It's great, but you
cannot understand what it means until you are standing at the rim staring at the
vastness. I think that's true of this particular show. But I agree with you, you
know. When the Internet was going mainstream, we discussed that. Because coming
from that time of our life, there was the excitement of, "Oh, there's a new LP
coming from PRIEST!" You'd put the
vinyl on your turntable, and that was the only way you could experience it. You
couldn't snag it off the Internet or get an illegal download or a video clip. So
there was a mystery of how [a band] would do it onstage. And to a certain
extent, that's gone now. But it's today's world, you have to accept it. It's all
about living in the moment, and the only way you can live in the moment for a
PRIEST show is to come and see us.

Miami New Times: Why did you choose to film your live DVD at the date here in
South Florida? Was it just a scheduling thing?

Halford: It's a combination of a lot of things. We've been coming back and forth
to Florida since the early '80s. We made two or three records in Miami at
Bayshore Sound, which is no longer there. So we spent many years in the Miami
area, especially in Coconut Grove and Key Biscayne, so we have many memories
from South Florida. The fans are crazy down there -- the metal heads go insane.

Miami New Times: Really? You find that South Florida metal audiences in
particular are really that crazy?

Halford: There's just a very special feeling from the Florida metal heads that
we want to capture. So here's a chance for all the Florida metal heads to become
famous, because the cameras will be pointing on them throughout the night, as
well as on the band. We're very excited that we're going to be making this film,
this full show in Hollywood.

I drove to Tampa last night for the show and all I can say is that the Priest blew me away as they always do. Even though I went into the show with very high expectations, they still went above and beyond. Rob in particular was in amazing form (better than last tour). He was screaming his way through the songs better than he has in years.

The only dissapointment was that they did not play a longer set. They went on stage an hour earlier than usual because of the departure of Whitesnake ( I was happy about that considering I had an hour and a half drive home following the show).

Bottom line: Incredible, high-energy show!
[Screamin' Demon] Monday, August 17, 2009 4:24:13 AM 
I hope the 08.17 show will have more songs in the set. Like Sinner, Dissident Aggressor, Death. We already have The Ripper and Victim Of Changes on DVD from Rising In The East. Hopefully the set will be lengthened. Freewheel Burning & Hell Patrol will rip my balls off listening to a Pro-Shot soundboard version.

I have been hearing that the FL dates have not been selling well particularly Jacksonville area. Priest is geting 8,000-9,00  per night and last look was well below that. Hopefully this is not the case...Well then tonights Hollywood FL show should be a loud audience since it is indoors..  Any other added songs tonite in Hollywood for the filming of the show? Let us know... MpleSyrp

Myself, being a drummer for 5 years... And Scott, being the reason I started playing... I can tell you that he did infact use double bass during Freewheel Burning. Saw 'em live back in July, the concert was phenomenal!
Edited at: Sunday, August 16, 2009 3:37:21 AM
[Screamin' Demon] Thursday, August 13, 2009 3:19:51 PM 
Yeah. I guess I'd just prefer if Scott used louder bass drums, like he did on the Painkiller tour. It's really hard to hear some double bass drumming of his nowadays, like the intro to Painkiller (unless it's a good sounding bootleg), Judas Rising & Hellrider (2005 youtube live clips) .

It sure sounded like he was playing double bass to us. Here is the video we shot from the front row in Cincinnati. Scott kicks ass on every song - I LOVE watching him play!!

Question to those who have attended this US summer tour concerts...does Scott play Freewheel Burning with double bass? It's hard to tell from the bootlegs. On one it sounds like double bass.

Yeah Becks Invader is one of my favorites!  But wouldn't it be cool if they did something like this? !!!


Hey I.M.P.   I'm going over to the thread right now to see your pictures!!!!  I'll bet you had a blast!!!!

Hey dude, finally got 'em up on the Priest Picture and Art Gallery.

I almost created a new topic to post up Priest concert pics, but found that topic just in time.  I'll bet someone's relieved, hehehe!

That would be awesome J.D Invader is a song I'd love to hear live, and Rock Forever, so I can hear Rob flexing his vocal might, LOL!

I still wish they would do a "70's  only" set list with a few odd-ball-tracks thrown in there!!!!  

Intro(Winter Retreat)
Never Satisfied
Dying To Meet You
Island Of Domination
Call For The Priest
Let Us Prey
White Heat Red Hot
Better By You Better Than Me

Agreed! Very well put ... I especially support your final remarks, I've always gotten my money's worth where a 'Priest show is concerned!  You have a way with words, Freeze

Awesome review there, Deep Freeze.

I do agree with you on Halford being "happy," as I noticed the same thing in Costa Mesa.  He seemed to have a bit more of a strut in his step as well.

I just realized it's been a long time since Halford used a microphone stand.

BRAVO!!! Wonderful to hear and great review. Very happy for you, mon ami.

OK, finally getting around to my review of the show. STILL a bit hoarse from all the yelling but that is just fine..I can type! HAAAA!!!!!!!!

So, I mentioned PopEvil over in their Thread. Enough said about them, except that I remain VERY impressed with the honest and humble attitude they had.  As for Whitesnake, it may be a bit unfair of me to try to review their effort as I am a Coverdale fan. I think he has done some amazing things in his career and managed to stay commercially viable even though he has drifted in and out of the music scene on a couple of occasions. He has never really "re-invented" least not to a noticable degree.  He is as he was back in the 70's, a Plant clone that can sing and write very well. He always delivers as far as I am concerned and that is the mark of a true professional. (Granny screams be dammned...HAAAAAA!!!)

Now then, onto the Boys....What can I say?? Judas Priest continue to make it happen and do it the right way..ALL THESE years later! I am glad I had the opportunity to see them twice in less than a month. it was a chance to make a comparison and I was pleasantly surprised. Priest are the Gods.  There is NO doubt about it. They are simply amazing. And at their age...I am in awe. Judas Priest sets the standard by which all others are measured. I believe with all my heart.

Glenn and KK are as tight as they have ever been, as far as I can tell. They have been together so long that they just know instinctively. It is a remarkable thing to witness, actually. Just amazing. Ian is such a great guy.  He goes to his corner and there he stays. He is in the background doing EXACTLY what he is supposed to do, lay down a foundation with Scott.  Those two are great at that. The beat is always dead-on. True professionals.

Rob.  Our dear, beloved Rob. I was so happy to see him smiling and enjoying himself. A far cry (I think) from the Vegas show last year at the Palms. He seems genuinely happy. Of course, they are getting near the end of this tour and I can only imagine how badly he must want to get back to that quiet apartment by the ocean! Nonetheless, a brilliant performance! His screams are so cool. Not what they were thirty years ago as far as pitch but OH MAN!! When he lets loose it pierces your skull!!!  Love the set list , too. I have NO complaints.  They are delivering exactly what they said they would and I do not think they should make ANY changes! It all comes together very nicely.  

All in all, a tremendous show. Absolutely incredible. I am SO glad they did this tour at this time. My step-son got to hear some "classic" Priest and THAT is truly special. Would love to catch ONE more show this year but I will settle for the two I did see and say, BRAVO. Well done, indeed. I did not go backstage. I did not get a picture with the Band or hang out by the buses for an autograph but I did get every single dollar's worth of what I spent!! I wonderful evening with THE world's greatest Heavy Metal act....ever,
