I need to see Judas Priest in concert!  Please bring Epitaph to Canada, I need to see this band before I die!    \m/

[TokyoDave] Tuesday, February 01, 2011 1:56:51 PM 
Watching here everyday to see the U.S. and Japan tour dates announced!  Want to see them at least three more times!
[CSCarbone] Saturday, January 29, 2011 2:54:11 PM 
I hope they come to latin america, i want them to come to Panama they are my favorite band ever and i never had the blessing to see them playing live, Metallica came here to Panama and they blow up our minds best investment ever made XP, i really hope they can come here in this tour =D

I'm glad we'll get some new music with the farewell shows
[scd1] Friday, January 28, 2011 11:08:40 PM 

Fan since 1980, saw first show in 1984 in Kalamazoo Michigan. Can't wait for announcement of US tour dates hope they come to St. Paul, MN!!!

[MJ66] Wednesday, January 26, 2011 9:57:19 PM 
I've been lucky enough to see the boys on at least 4 tours here in the States.  I really hope I'm able to get tickets to the Epitaph tour.  I can't even begin to explain how much of an impact they have had on my life over the last 30 years.  Especially Glenn and K.K. without them I would have never picked up a guitar....So I owe a big thanks to them both for bringing that joy into my life!

Best band ever and they're saying good bye? I grew listening to Judas'. I remember I was 14 and a cousin sent me to find some Lp's she had at our grandma's house, there were some cinderella, kiss, others and defenders of the faith from Judas', I remember being listening to Guns and Roses stuff at that time and then I saw this Lp who had some different thing on its cover. Then, when I put it on the stereo everything changed, rock music had only one real good band and it was judas'. After that I met a guy who had been a rocker for many years and had colections of many bands, he asked me: "what do you listen to? don't tell me metallica and maiden shat coz everybody listens to them" and I said Judas'........... and he showed me all judas' Lp's he had by that time. Then I found my own collection of LP's and some CD's. There are missing some judas releases but I'm proud of having colected most of them. The only thing now is that they're in a farewell tour and I couldn't see them ever. They were in Columbia (Colombia in Spanish) I think it was the most close they never were from home (Venezuela). Ripper was here in December 2010, he sang amazingly but  Ican't die without watching at Halford's perform.  I don't care if he thinks he's old and can't sing as before, he's still the metal god!. By the way could someone tell me if they're coming to VEnezuela or that I'll have to travel to a near country? I'll kill someone if they're not coming and I have to beg for my goverment letting me get the needed dollars to fly abroad. Here is stupid restriction to go abroad and taking money. In former years ppl used to go to the airport acquire their currency and travel, now yuçou have to pass thru a traumatic and tedious process to acquire the money to travel. Damn politicians, they never invent something useful
[METALMANJP] Monday, January 24, 2011 11:43:40 AM 

Priest Classics that they have never played before ? What could they be ?...... Raw Deal, Island of Domination, Saints in Hell, Burning Up.

Are there going to be more dates for the UK than just the "High Voltage" festival..? How long will they have on set? They need at least 90 mins if its a farewell gig!
[dawnflint] Friday, December 31, 2010 4:40:44 AM 
No actual tour dates in England yet but they are booked for the High Voltage festival over here in July 2011. Already have my ticket booked.  soooooo can't wait!!!!
[Lauen] Friday, December 31, 2010 4:36:56 AM 
what I keep wishing, is just "come to Norway" and now they are, and I am not sure I have an opportunity to see them. If it's really their plan to do one last world tour, and then stop, i just hope that they start the tour, and because of the fans and such, they decide that the year they had off was not good, and made them forget about how awesome it is when they are touring, and decide to make it a "we're not done yet" tour. YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY BE QUITTING NOW!!
[guidogodoy] Monday, December 27, 2010 9:12:23 PM 
My vote? No. We certainly will not get any "from the vault" releases. Why? I say that they just don't exist.

You know that I have hundreds of boots too. I also remember the rumors flying around judaspriestworld.com and then **poof** like vaporware. I am really sloppy with the organization of all the stuff I have. Which is the earliest besides "The Ripper" for audio and "Visual Metalogy" for video (off the top of my head)? I'll have to seriously sit down and look at my own collection someday.

Either way, my personal thoughts on the subject are above. Like you said, what we have is really quite limited. Sad but true.

[Maple Syrup] Monday, December 27, 2010 6:56:06 PM 
You like me have everything old from Priest, incl. audio boots and limited video. My question to the Priest faithful and Gallery is: Now that Priest is saying farewell, will we get one last release of rare material from the vaults, whether Video or Audio? The possibilities would say there are so many things they could release, but in reality Priest has "never grasped the past" in providing us some of the early footage of the band. I firmly believe it just doesnt exist, whether is a show from British Steel or Point of Entry or earlier? Bands like Kiss and Maiden have hundreds of hours and footage yet Priest is very limited in what they have released. It may be a contractual thing with CBS or whatever but you would think after all these years we would get something. There was a rumour about a year ago about a Hamburg 1981 POE tour show on video (reported on judaspriestworld.com - which has closed up shop sometime ago) was surfacing. Its just sad to think when Priest finally hangs it up and says goodbye we are left with only a handful of shows from the early tours. Yes we know about Old Grey Whistle, Tokyo 1978, One clip of Green Manalishi from 79-80, the dubbed chicago show from 1981.. but thats it seriously on the old stuff. I guess after following JP after all these years and tours, this Priest fan was hoping to get something that showed them in the raw, ripping the tunes and what made them so great in the early years. I can go on but I am just left with an empty feeling that without any release from the vault, people will not get to see what we remember was Priest in their heyday, ontop of the metal world. No need to post your favorite setlist here, just an explanation into why we havent seen anything like this from the "Priest vault".

No mgdman they are not giving us another "studio album" so no new material which "sucks balls" as we all know.  They are touring a "greatest hits" farewell smarenell tour. Blah.

It's been awhile since I've been online so forgive me...

I really really hope they come to argentina ... i only saw them once ... keeping my fingers crossed (does exist that expression in english?)
[rtown] Thursday, December 23, 2010 3:25:44 PM 
What about tour dates in Russia? Please come to St. Petersburg!!!
[Priestfan2010] Thursday, December 23, 2010 9:24:11 AM 
I have a feeling this won't be the last we'll see of the band. Maybe they won't have anymore world tours, but I'm sure they'll play in some festivals in the future.
[SkyelarH] Wednesday, December 22, 2010 11:52:14 PM 
Since this is the Priests final tour, I would like to know if they intend to tour South Africa. I am a concert virgin and am saving myself for them. I would be great if they could include S.A. in this tour.
[the highway terror] Wednesday, December 22, 2010 11:39:45 PM 
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ i knew i was forgetting a show !! i saw Priest on the ozzfest reunion show in '04 too ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
[the highway terror] Tuesday, December 21, 2010 9:31:57 PM 
This is my 1st post in a long time. It's sad that Priest are hanging it up but, it had to happen sometime.
  Are there any uber innies on the board that know if a new album is in the works ? It would be great if they would end with a true Masterpiece in the vein of Stained Class, Jugulator or Angel of Retribution, something dark and brooding 
   I've been a Priest fan since '78 when I heard Stained Class for the first time , I've seen the Band 9 times over the years(Screaming for Vengeance, Defenders of the Faith twice ,Ram It Down, Painkiller, Operation Rock n Roll , Demolition twice and Angel of Retribution and I hope to catch them one last time when they come through Ohio in 2011
Anyone who's heard anything feel free to E-Mail me at [email protected]
Happy Holidays to all !
[LisaUniacke] Monday, December 13, 2010 5:56:18 AM 
Haven't seen any dates in Australia yet.... PLEASE come to Melbourne!!
[soccer star] Sunday, December 12, 2010 11:28:11 AM 

 I am sorry to hear that this will be the last Priest tour (though i am not shocked, it was on the cards) but we can't complain as they have given us the 'Best' for 35 years.
I would like to think they might record a couple of new track's to leave us with but i am not sure they will...

Should there be another best of or a dvd covering the band from 74-2010? i think they should release one which contains unseen footage and rare interviews.
Think they should go through the years talking about each album and get interviews with past members, anyone agree??

As for Halford the band i think he should use a new producer for the next album, think its turned a bit stale with 'Z'.
Thats just my opinion anyway..

Merry Christmas to you all.

just saw a news aticle about them retiring as a band.man this is getting very depressing with only 1 positive thing THE HALFORD BAND WILL CONTINUE TO STORM FORWARD.

This is so sad, indeed. I just can't imagine the world without JUDAS PRIEST.I knew this moment will come some day, but still... They are very important for me, I grew up with their music and with their presence in my life.
Very, very, bad news....

me entere esta maņana en el trabajo :S hace rato q no daba vueltas por aca, se me complica porq por lo general escribo en ingles y tardo mucho tiempo porq soy quisquillosa ... si bien es genial todo lo q hicieron y da placer q se retiren asi, en lo mas alto, es la tipica situacion q te deja con un sabor agridulce, uno quisiera verlos en vivo de aqui al fin de los dias ... en fin, espero q pasen por argentina, los vi solo en el 2008, hace tiempo puse fotos del programa ...
[black country boy] Thursday, December 09, 2010 5:48:54 PM 
Nice to hear that sd,I was hoping to create a more positive thread here than on the main board. We should celebrate the mighty priest,40+ years of blood ,sweat, and frostbite. I am gutted of course being a huge priest fan for over 30 years. But i dont think this will be the last we hear from The priest....
[SDBinNY] Thursday, December 09, 2010 4:29:34 PM 
As much as it saddens me to see my childhood heroes end their touring, I am glad to see that they all came out of that lifestyle in tact, healthy, and still able to create music.. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to finally see them live on their final tour, and look forward to the future they persue....

[black country boy] Wednesday, December 08, 2010 10:18:34 AM 
Like i said Jt,Everyone seems to think this is the end of the mighty beast that is Judas Priest,This i believe is not the case,I am pretty sure we have more new recordings to come.Of course one day they will retire. But if you think priest have finished unleashing the finest heavy metal known to mankind,Then in my opinion,Youve got another thing comin.
