|What a sad day for us real Priest fans.|
Just say Halford on Saturday and he was more nostalgic than ever before.
He talked with the crowd even more than usual.
Priest rules! I am soooo bummed out.

|Well the times were fun with just only seeing them twice. I will make sure to see them one more time no matter what. We will still support their music for years to come!|
|[Marktheshark] Tuesday, December 07, 2010 1:43:02 PM|| |
|Well, I knew this day would come sooner or later. Still, it's sad to think that there will be no more Priest in a year or so. Glad I got to meet them on the Metal Masters tour a few years back. I will definately go see them at least once on the Epitaph tour. I was hoping for one last scorcher of an album before a final farewell tour, but I can't complain after all the great music they have given us over the years. Hope to see some of my JP boardmember buddies for one last party at the Toronto show next year. We'll always have the memories.....|

|Holy crap. Like previously stated...I am gutted. At work, can't take this all in but the "Epitaph" at the top said it all. More to come.|
|[Bluddy Hell] Tuesday, December 07, 2010 12:50:40 PM|| |
|I have missed 4 JP concert tours since 1982. That might seem like a lot or a little from your point of view. I consider each show to be a part of my life, and I wonder what I missed out on from those 4 shows that I didn't make it to. I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting each member of this fine band and will cherish the photos and autographs they did for me. It goes without saying that I will make every effort to see at least one (and hopefully more) show on their Epitaph tour.|

|We all knew the day would come. Just shocked it is now. After the last tour I felt the Priest was back stronger than ever. Interviews from the band gave no clue to what was around the corner. I have to wonder if somthing has happend for the sudden news of retirement. |
Anyway- Thanks to the PRIEST for the many years of enjoyment.

|Seriously, everyone is entitled to their opinion but I for one am sick and tired of your snide comments. One would think you aren't a Priest fan at all . Everyone here will freely admit what they dislike that Priest has done, but I honestly can't remember you ever saying something positive about them.

|I guess I know what we are doing on our vacation! Follow that bus! We were going to take them, but I didn't want it to be the farewell tour!|

|You've described how I feel too HRMG. Priest have seen me through some tough times - in fact they are as I write this post. |

|Well, the end days are coming for all the Classic Metal bands.|
We got to say goodbye to the the Scorps and now we will say goodbye to the Priest and our kids will get to say they saw Priest on their farewell tour.
Better to go out on top then fade away.

Hello All. I rarely post on this board, but have enjoyed following the conversation for the past several years. However, I had to post something in regards to the final tour announcment. The news is devestating to me, but it had to come.
I purchased Defenders of the Faith as a junior in high school in 1984 and then saw them that summer on the Defenders tour. So many of their songs are about independence, going against the grain, and pursuing your dreams and that message has always resonated with me. I am just glad that I was able to see them so many times and that I have been able to enjoy all of the music over the years. I was hoping they would stick around until my daughter was old enough to see them. She is already a fan at the age of five!
Anyway, I hope I can meet some of you out at one of the final shows.
A very sad day.

|This sucks! I've only seen The Metal Gods 4 times, which is not nearly enough! Last time Glenn gave me a pick! It was the best moment in my lifetime!!! They have got to come to Houston. But if they don't I WILL be on the road. Maybe there will be a reunion tour in a few years...this can't be the end.|
|[METALMANJP] Tuesday, December 07, 2010 9:02:13 AM|| |
Everyone knew this day would come. Priest will live on through their music, this site and memories.
|[Head banger] Tuesday, December 07, 2010 8:28:57 AM|| |
|Terrible news. still I supose the lads have earned it. I have to make it to one of their shows, hope one is close by. |
I like the site header above.
|[HOT ROCKIN' METAL GODDESS] Tuesday, December 07, 2010 7:40:54 AM|| |
|I feel like someone just ripped my heart out of my chest...... I can't even begin to tell you how much the music of Priest has meant to me in my life - always giving me the strength to go on when I thought I couldn't, lifting me up when I am at my lowest and inspiring me to be my best. Priest will always be my favorite band. No other could ever take their place.|
It looks like this is the time for all of us to plan that big get together at a show and send them out in a blaze of glory and give them all the love that we can!!!
|[MetalPixie] Tuesday, December 07, 2010 7:39:47 AM|| |
|I echo the sentiments of my fellow Priest-mongers below.|
I knew this day would come ... but I was not expecting it already.
I, too, am crushed ... as JTSDS said - they've been my lifeline.
Long live the beast that is Priest.
Priest fans - we need to make this THE biggest selling tour out there next year ...
bigger than U2, Gaga, Bieber ... whoever.
This is OUR chance to show the world what an impact Priest has had on the industry
and on fans.

|I woke up to the news on Facebook. Ugh. I just got back from the BEST show-seeing Halford in Allentown-and now this?!?!
I'm just sick. My vacation will be spent seeing as many shows as possible! :(|

ABOUT LAST JUDAS PRIEST WORLD-TOUR...
Edited at: Tuesday, December 07, 2010 7:17:24 AM Edited at: Tuesday, December 07, 2010 7:18:10 AM
O my god!!!
2011 the last Judas Priest world tour???
I just can’t believe this!!!
Why that news?
And why that news now on Christmas?
For their fans….this news is the most bad gift they got ever on Christmas holydays…
For me personally,this news is the most sadly news I ever heard related to my soul band and now on Christmas too,and the sadly thing is that is not just a rumour but is a true thing as far as these news already appears in their official site ,and here on My space and Facebook too,etc.But the most sadly thing related to their first part of their 2011 tour about Europe,is that for most of us,like me,and others,will be almost impossible to attend to these countries from their tour,and if they will not induce other countries in Europe then when they will induce the other part of their 2011 tour which probably will be for USA,and for Japan,definnetly for some of us,like me,and others,will be impossible to attend.
For their fans…this news will be definitely the only last chance to re-see they live,or seen they for their first and last time.
For me personnaly because probably I will cannot attend to neither one of these locations,their first and last show in Romania,at Bucharest ,at Best Fest ,from 2008,11 july,will be my last memory from they,but also I hope they will not finish their musical carrer now ,and they will continue at least to enjoy us with some new studio albums and even some Dvd-s with shows from their all musical carrers.
For their fans…this news put the fans to do their inventory,related to their memories which they accumulate until now,such as how many of their music bought,how many of their live shows they attend,if they got an autograph or not,etc…
For me personnaly, this news make me to do my own inventory,and if I look back,I am sad that I discovered their music such late,just now 4 years ago, and I didn’t succed to have all their original music long time ago,but I am proud today I already have this entirely,and because I discovered them so late,I didn’t succed to attend to many of their shows,but I am proud that I attend to their first show in my country now 2 years ago,and I hope that Halford band will not stop yet their live activity and will come to my country too,and even in my city Arad,to our Rock on Mures Fest,and finnaly because I discovered them 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 I hope I will get one from Rob too,if he will come with Halford band even to Romania,but most than this,even if I discovered them so late,also I am very proud that I was one of their fans which got the chance to keep a short corepsondence with Miss.Jayne ,their manager,with mr.Mark ,their art editor,and with Mr.Murray,their webmaster,peoples which passed my correspondence to the band and to Rob,to know they have a new fan from a country where they even didn’t knew they will ever come,and more than this,I am proud that I dedicated all my net pages to the band,and to Rob,and any will happen,they will remain ever my soulband,and I will continue to fight for the induction of their and of Rob into Rock Roll Hall of Fame and for bring them a star on Walk of Fame.
I still cant' belive this news,but unfortunately is a true news!
But you Judas Priest shouldn’t gaved us this news now on Christmas!Also I love you and I will always love you my soul band!!!
