What is really sad is that Priest will not release a final metal masterpiece (where are you HHHEEELLLRRRIIIDDDEEERRR?), but rather they hang their hats on that hogwash lame album NOSTRADMS. Sorry but it doesnt sit well with this Priest fan. Thanks for the music and all the fantastic live shows ive witnessed since 1980.

GloriaRomana thank you for your pray.
I really hope that someone of JP could read it or someone of the staff and inform them that also if most of us expected it, we would like to have a final destructive, huge, definitive Metal Album.
It's reallay  abad new. It was about one month since my last posting here and to open the site, to read Epitaph made me think to a new album but at the same time to a farewell. What to say, apart on hoping to have the last album, is that on june 22nd. I will be in Milan.

I just hope I don't run into Halford greeting people at Walmart. Imagine " How Ya Doin ? All Right! , hope your in the mood for some discounted shopping this time.
Seriously, I think KK has an 18 hole golf course on his estate, how much does that cost to keep up every year. To keep the lifestyle they will need some cash.

Please tell me this is true. They aren't actually splitting? If so this is a sigh of relief I mean I thought they were done for good but if they aren't splitting well that's just the best news ever not the worst I need more Priest music and I need it now! God please let Priest stay together! Oh and J.D I have a lot to thank you for - I have been listening to a lot of Saxon recently and I'm absolutely loving it especially the album 'Lionheart'

O my god!!!
2011 the last Judas Priest world tour???
I just can’t believe this!!!
Why you gaved us this news already,why such suddently and why now on Christmas???
Please do some to change your minds and not dessapear at all yet,the old fans will miss you,the new ones still need you,so please don’t do that cause to live without you is almost impossible and to replace you with others,is really impossible.
Without you,Judas Priest,or without Halford and Fight,died a half of
my heart,and when Rob will not be anymore,will die all my heart entirely.
Also,any you decided or any you will re-decide in time…
I love you and I will always love you my soul band!!!
1.Why that news already,why such suddently and why now on Christmas?
For me and for most many fans,this news is the most sadly news I ever heard related to my soul band ,and the most sadly  thing is that is not just a rumour but is a true thing as far as these news already appears in your official site ,and on My space and Facebook too,etc.
I admit that I knew that news will come one day,cause is some normal at your age and after more than 30 years of musical carrer,in which the music was for your only reason to live,your only way to offer your fans all what they need from albums to live shows,things from the reason which the roads were your only homes,which always separated you by close people, parents,families,and friends,so for all these,was to expect as you to stop your live activity,but I admit I never though that news will come so soon,and so suddenly,and in special now on Christmas without to prepare us the fans from time,that way maked me to wonder if there out is other reason for which you stopped your live activity now or if this way  to do the things is just a tipicaly british way.
I also hope that with the help of your fan support,to change your minds in time and to still continue to enjoy us with your live activity,at least 2 or 3 years from now,that even if your activity will not be such full like until now,meaning with such many shows per year,how was until now from 2 in 2 days ,or 3 in 3 days,will be ok just some shows per year,and even if a show will not during so much,how was until now with shows for
2 hours or 1 hour,will be ok just a show of some 25-30 minutes,just to see you,but if also you will not change your minds,I hope that you will continue at least with your studio activity,even I always image that you will put all Nostradamus album on stage,like a oper,how is The Wall of Roger Water,from the legendary Pink Floyd(my favorite opera),so hope you will enjoy us the fans at least with new albums and maybe some Dvd-s with some of your old images from your carrer,and maybe with a authentical book about your entire music history,and why not with some contests to fans, from which you will can give the fans the chance to win autographs from you,or some musical gifts from you,such as posters,or magazines,like souvenirs,any,just to know that you are still there,and alive.
2.Why with that news in which you bring just the most knowns countries in Europe?
For me and for the most many fans,the news of  the presentation of just these countries in your list, is also one of the  most sadly,cause in this way exist the possibility like any of us to see you last time,or other first time,but worst,other at all ever.
I admit that I knew that my country will not be in the first list of your countries,cause you discovered us so late,and you came to us just ones and almost over
your 30 years of carrer,but I admit I never though that show you gaved us Romanians,in 2008,on 11 july,in Bucharest,at Best Fest Aftershock,will be the last but also I am thanksfully to God cause he gaved me the inspiration to go there to your show and the power to do all that sacrificies to arrive at your show,such as to throught out my last job for you,to rent money for travel,and car,etc and now to no have any regret for what I done then,cause you gaved the honour to come to us,and to bring us 2 hours of unique show,in which you enjoy us with your voice and your instrumental abilites,with your beautiful songs,and your cool stage changes,but first with your simple way to be,to speak with us,to treat us and to get down to us the fans from your celebrity status,like we was equals.
I also hope that you will include my country in your actual Europe list too,otherwise,for me ,and for many other fans,will be almost impossible to attend,and for me will definetly be,cause even if it’s a shame,but still living in a poor country with a hard history which was about more than 50 years of  communism and humility and restrictions for us,the humanity,and from which we didn’t recover yet even if we are a liberal country now,but also still with bad leading system,bad laws and bad economy where the most small salary ,is the most small from UE,and is about 150-200euros/mouth,and also being without my own family,meaning without husband and kids to support me,without a job actually and
without the chance to get one now with this crisis,and still living with my parents,with a sick mother and a unemployed father,and an very old grandmother about almost 90 years old,so living just from their small contribution from state,money from which we must to save mounthy,for food,for utilities,for owns in bank,for medications,etc will be almost impossible to save some to attend to these countries of the tour,with all the travels taxes and the ticket,and if you will not introduce other countries in Europe,than mines,etc to can see you,then when you will introduce the other parts of your 2011 tour which probably will be one for USA,and one for Japan,well,definnetly for me,will be really impossible to attend,and all these are not a complain but a reality in which I think most many fans are,but I still hope you will try to introduce my country in your tour list,and other countries too,where you wasn’t ever or where you have owns.
3.Why with that news you forced us to do our inventary already?
For me and for the most many fans that news,put us to do our inventory related to our memories with you which we accumulate until now,such as how many of your music we bought,how many of your live shows we saw,etc.
I admit I knew that doing my own inventory I will be very very sad cause I discovered you such late,just now 4 years ago, and I didn’t succed to have all your original music long time,but I am proud today I already have this entirely,and because I discovered you
so late,I neither succed to attend to many of your shows,but I am proud that I attend to your first show in my country,and finnaly because I discovered you so late, I didn’t’ succed to meet Rob Halford,personally,to salute him,to do a photo with him,and take an autograph,but I am proud that I got one from Scott Travis,and because I discovered you so late I didn’t get the chance to fight for arriving to collaborate with you,or work for you.,but also,even if I discovered you so late,also I am very proud that I was one of your lucky fans which got the honour to keep a short corespondence with Miss.Jayne ,your
manager,with mr.Mark ,your art editor,and with Mr.Murray,your webmaster,people which passed my correspondence to the band and to Rob,and more than this,I am proud that I dedicated all my net pages to the band,and to Rob,and I will continue to fight for your induction and Rob into Rock Roll Hall of Fame and for bring you a star on Walk of Fame,and maybe a petition for your returning.
I also hope,even if you will retry,that you Halford band with still continue your live activity at least another some years,and will enjoy us with your tours,your new albums,and Dvd-es,and maybe a book,and maybe you will thing to come to Romania too,even in my city Arad,at our Rock on Mures festival,where I hope I will finnaly can meet you Rob Halford,salute you,do a photo with you,take and autograpg from you,and who knows,maybe to talk about a collaboration or work for you,all these before I will give you my sorries for what I said and I done related to you.
I still cant' belive this news,but unfortunately is a true news!
But you Judas Priest shouldn’t gaved us this news already,and not such suddenly and not
now on Christmas!
Please do some,to change your minds and not desspear at all yet,the old fans will miss you,the new ones still need you,so please don’t do that cause to live without you is almost impossible and to replace with others,is really impossible.
Without you,Judas Priest,or without Halford and Fight,died a half of
my heart,and when Rob will not be anymore,will die all my heart entirely.
Also,any you decided or any you will re-decide in time…
I love you and I will always love you my soul band!!!

I cant beleive this is happening! I read the news last night and slept on it so i wouldn't bitch about it like a lot of us. I feel like a someone close to me just died, just 7 years ago we were all filled with hope and excitment with Priest reuniting, and now it may be all over. What bothers me is that Rob and KK spoke on how Priest had a few more years left in them. Also, notice how the press realese also states "World Tour". Does that mean they will countinue touring on a limited level? Rob also mentioned a new album in an interveiw a couple of months ago, and with the European leg of the tour ending in august, it doesn't leave much time for the US. So I envision them touring in 2012, their 40th annaversery with Rob. This may not truly be be the end, but if it is, it has been good. Priest are my favorite band, always will be. Unlike some of us, I believe Priest have been kicking ass since they reunited with Rob. Their music changed my life and many others. They have been the MOST influential artist on my music and on any metal artist.

Well, I just came back from seeing HALFORD and Ozzy in Grand Rapids, Michigan tonight. FUCKING AWESOME!!!! Rob was incredible and this did not seem like a man that is ready to retire. But Priest is a band and if even one member is done, they will NOT replace him.
I love this band more than anything and all the bullshit I'm reading from some people just pisses me off! When Rob said tonight that he would be back next year with Priest, I don't know, there was just something about how he said it - he seemed sad.
If you are or ever were a Priest fan, GET OFF YOUR ASS AND COME TO SEE THEM AND SUPPORT THEM! I know I will go to every single show that I can make it to.

what a sad day!!!! but they will always play in my heart, and I'll turn the volume even higher whenever priest is on my radio!!
[Trashcan Man] Tuesday, December 07, 2010 9:01:02 PM 
I've been, and always will be, a great fan. I've been listening to Priest since the early 80's. Some of my greatest memories are of the concerts I've been to.

"Out there is a faortune waiting to be had,
If you think I'll let it go you're mad,
You've got another thing comining"

Those lyrics have kept me alive in some of the down parts of my life. Priest has given me the energy and inspiration to be the best I can be in this life.

I bow down to you.

The Greatest. This band created awesome hard rock and Heavy Metal. THere is variety in the Priest catalouge. This is an accomplishment that very very few have accomplished. THe variety is so amazing that it is the greatest collection of heavy music in exsistence. NO one compares to what these musicians have created. Every priest album is awesome. THey are different for different reasons and times. The priest machine was conquering the world with heavy guitar music. All the songs kick major ass. THe talent and character of these musicians enabled them to create many different flavors of Hard Rock / Heavy Metal. I loved it all. and tried to play the songs i loved. Judas Priest Lives

[Vaillant 3.0] Tuesday, December 07, 2010 7:07:26 PM Judas Priest are about to embark on what will be their last world tour. As already mentioned in another post, it's quite a bittersweet moment. I'm sad and happy at the same time. Sad because after next year (and possibly the one after) they will no longer take the world by storm as they have in the past. But I'm also happy. Happy that they've managed to turn Heavy Metal into a musical force to be reckoned with in the 40 years that they've been together...that they've managed to give the genre a look and a kickass sound. Judas Priest is a band that cannot be imitated. They can only be worshipped for their pure awesomeness, on stage and in their music. I'm happy that I've been able to see this band twice live and have a great time on both occasions screaming and banging my head off. Cherished memories, locked up deep in my tiny little shriveled up heart, never to be taken away.

Thank you, Judas Priest. I may not have met any of you guys personally yet, but I feel lucky to have even known about you at all. I'll be sure to make it to your next concert in SoCal (or NorCal) and scream extra loud that night. Thank you Rob, Glenn, KK, Ian, Scottie.
[spapad] Tuesday, December 07, 2010 6:59:25 PM 
True. A life time of entertainment they have delivered.  I just have to quit being selfish and admit they have given so many years of great music.  Still, I'm sad.
