The webmaster did add a feature in which you can only get PMs from friends. Go to "Admin.", choose "Edit Profile", and near the bottom there will be a checkbox and a statement that says "Only Accept PMs from friends". Check that box and click on "Save". That way you won't get any random and negative PMs from Darryn, or anyone else who you haven't added to your Friends list.

Great that they put Hell Patrol back in the set. Now if they can just remove The Ripper & Victim Of Changes and replace them with Sinner & Death that would be awesome. The Ripper & Victim Of Changes slow the set down too much.

Please let me know how the well the attendance figures have been; I'm curious to know if JP still has the drawing power (especially with them doing BS) to sell out 10,000 seat arenas.  I'm going to the Merriweather Post show with 2 friends and this outdoor pavilion holds 17,000; I hope JP at least sells out the pavilion seating but I have a feeling that the place wil be 1/2 full, and that is being optimistic.

This is how you write a review of the show (newbies)!  from Metal

Now it was time for Judas Priest. They are to play the 1980 album “British Steel” in its entirety. A front drop with a silhouette of the Birmingham, England steel factory was put up during the set change. The lights were killed and a laser show of a mill worker pounding steel was shown. Curtain down, we have “Rapid Fire”. It was intense. The Metal God Rob Halford appeared, dressed in denim and leather and sporting a blonde goatee.

Priest ripped through the album flawlessly, yet found a way to make a heavy album even heavier and more metal than it was in 1980.

But of course, there was more. After Priest got through the nine-song British Steel set, they went right into “The Ripper”. They followed with “Prophecy” from the “Nostradamus” album before closing with an incredible showing of “Victim of Changes”. Halford hit the final high notes dead on. It was amazing.

The band left the stage for a few minutes and then we heard the revving of the Harley (which has only eight stage miles on it). He comes out in all leather and performs “Freewheel Burning” on the bike.

The night ended with “You've Got Another Thing Coming” as security allowed the crowd to get closer to the stage.

As usual, guitarists Glen Tipton and K.K. Downing were tight. Scott Travis makes playing some of the hard and fast song very easy and Ian Hill hung back while laying down the bass.

The stage was simple. Two Union Jacks flanked the drum riser. Travis’ double bass had the British Steel album cover on it along with the backdrop. Part of the rig lighting was shaped like the Priest cross logo which was very cool.

I came into this show with high expectations from both bands and left beyond amazed. I will have to put this up there as one of my all-time favorite shows. Job well done by all.

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 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

Please be so kind to vote for the best guitar duo in history:

Rock Hard, Ride Free is an amazing JP song, but Hell Patrol is one of my all time favorites im so glad they added a song from Painkiller. 3 More days for me! Maple syrup please tell how the concert was!

It would kick ass if Scott played Freewheel Burning with double bass like he did in Fight.

MM, sorry I missed you in Milwaukee  by the time we bumped into Rebekah, we needed to go.

In Milwaukee they were on the Harley Davidson stage so perhaps they had Rock Hard, Ride Free in there particularly for that stage.

1 Update on the setlist in Toronto: Priest dropped Rock Hard Ride Free & replaced it with Hell Patrol. I am going to tomorrows show WHOOHOOO at PNC in Holmdel, NJ!!!
[Screamin' Demon] Saturday, July 04, 2009 5:03:10 PM 
I think Demonizer, Death and One Shot At Glory are all good choices

Thanks to Metal Maniac for the video, they sound good. Thanks to those that posted the set lists as well. I will be going now for sure. Yeah the set is short and there are some fan favorites they could have played, but with both Priest and Whitesnake playing an hour plus and an opening band they had to make some choices. I myself am glad the Painkiller is not there, now if they would also dump VOC and YGATC and replace them with somthing else I would be in heaven.

July 15th here I come.

I was at the Milwaukee show last night... I'm not a big fan of full-album setlists but they killed last night regardless.
