|Saw only one show in '09 (and God...there were so many great bands on the road this past year....wish I could've seen 'em all...but let's face it...going to concerts is a luxury these days...especially when you have a family to support). And I'm glad to say it was Judas Priest's summer jaunt that featured all of "British Steel." Phenomenal evening....the power and conviction they played with was overwhelming. What made it even more fitting, was to see it was raining considerably hard with thunder & lightning to boot as we made our way out from the PNC square...it brought to mind the lyric.... "....white bolts of lighting...came outta nowhere...blinding the darkness...creating the storm!!!!"|
My only show...and it was so worth it.

|2009 was a slow year for concerts. I only saw Opeth and Enslaved here in Tucson in May. Then I saw Priest in August up in Phoenix. This year looks good locally with some great shows coming up!|

|In 2009 I saw:|
Trivium W/ Black Tide & Heaven Shall Burn
Slayer W/ Megadeth

+ a tonne of local and national artists, too many to list / remember... hehe
Have already lined up for 2010 to see - Trivium, Faith No More, Isis, Anthrax, Anvil (Part of Soundwave Festival)
Destroyer 666, Chimaira.
Hopefully will be one hell of a year down under!!

|Believe it or not, that Priest Toronto show was my first Priest concert ever.|
And it absolutely blew me away. The energy level was there from beginning to end.
I go to a lot of shows in general, and nothing even compares to the Toronto show.
I check ticketmaster weekly, waiting to see when Priest goes back on tour, because I can't wait to see them again!!!

|Yeah they are back together touring. They played a great 2 hour set.|
After the show, it was about 2am, and they had to be in another city the next day, but they chilled, signed anything the fans wanted signed, and took pictures with everyone.
All 4 of them, great guys!

Judas Priest - July 9 Toronto Molson Amp - THE BEST SHOW EVER! 10/10
Judas Priest - August 4 San Diego - OK show 6/10
Judas Priest - August 5 Costa Mesa - Very Good Show - Met Ian & Scott 8/10
Judas Priest - August 17 Fort Laud - Good Show - DVD taping, Met Eddie Trunk before show 7/10
I had the chance to compare the shows to each other and the Toronto show was near flawless.
THAT should have been the DVD taping!

|IRON MAIDEN!!! I'll never forget it...it was AAAAAAAAAWWWEEESSOOOMMMEEEE!!!!!...now shit-allica is coming but it's not what it used to be so I'm not interested...aside from that there are no bands coming to this side of the world...we gotta be cursed or maybe the country is so small that the tip of the pen covers it every time a band is looking for this country on the map...|

|Are Living Color back together again? I saw those guys live in Wellington, NZ, in 93. It was an awesome show. They were touring their Stain album. Corey Glover, the lead singer of Living Color, is actually in the movie Platoon as well.|

The only arena shows I have seen this year have been Maiden and Priest. We have passes to Universal Studios who do a Mardi Gras concert series every year and this year we saw The Village People (horrible), Kelly Clarkson (great), Pat Benatar (phenomenal) and KC and the Sunshine Band (beyond horrible).

|I haven't seen anyone live this year due to money issues, Iron Maiden was here just after I got married and had been overseas for a few weeks LOL. Seeing AC/DC soon too! My sister just saw Them Crooked Vultures a few days ago in London, she said they were awesome!|
