 Not enough respect points to post anywhere but here????? I have been a damn priest fan since the beginning. I have a damn life, I have an opinion after buying ALL of your friggin albums and CD's amd DVD's priest.  My life does not revolve around the priest as you have set up this dumb web site to be. I had a priest logo on my jean jacket in the 80's, was VERY proud to wear it, saw several concerts and you guys were super tight with certain drummers. KK not being part of priest on their LAST tour ever. This is not cool on any level. I always leaned toward Glenn in the guitar department, but, after hearing this news, Glen without KK = no priest to me. Guitar team of all time, CANNOT be seperated, NEVER in my mind. Outdid maiden,  in this department. Replaced KK very easily with some Zakk hack. Not cool with me Priest, not cool at all. I am jumping ship on the final tour of my favourite band of all time. rest in peace, priest. RIPP...... This tour should be cancelled out of respect for KK. I have played music myself for 30 years, and I dont buy all the bullshit that I am fed. Give me a break. Something pissed him off, and whoever is the culprit, should be tossed out on their asses for this. THEY are not bigger than the priest itself.  To me, as a long term priest fan as well as MANY other bands that I supported by NOT downloading material off internet to avoid the cost of buying albums, I supported full out by buying everything I could through commercial avenues. For the bands I loved in the day. Selling out, settling for some hack guitarist to replace a guitar great, not for me. You guys sold out, you dissapointed me, you disrespected something that is FAR bigger than you are all. Priest is a core group, they cannot be replaced at a whim. I am very dissapointed it must end this way, and no longer respect the british way if its always the easy way out like  it was. No audiotion, word from one guitarist  you wanted that this guy is good. Damn, I take more painstaking time on my own  small level recordings than you did with this. shame on you priest. Im pissed and ashamed you sold out like this. Must be a management issue if it has this must influence. You guys should be calling the shots at this point, not some suit piece of shit. 

Very sincerely,

It’s gonna be a great album and it’s gonna carry on from where “Angel of Retribution” left off. We got “Nostradamus” out of our system and now we are heading towards classic Priest metal….the screams, the fast, the slow and the heavy! A little bit of everything. A big “thank you” for all that we are doing goes out to the fans. 


Thanks for the link Rockpages - that was a great interview!!

Hey guys,

Ian Hill talked a week ago to Greece's Rockpages Web Magazine about the band's new written material and K.K. Downing's recent's the link of that very interesting interview:

Even if it is not a great album you have to give them a break. I mean they're almost 60, be happy they are still touring. Even if you listen to Iron Maiden's new album The Final Frontier. To me it does not sound very good, but to large fans of Maiden, who will buy the album, it sounds good. Large fans of Judas Priest will buy this new album, and we will think it sounds good.

Since I don't know you, I guessed a couple of excuses for a female fan. 
I did mention as being afraid of going alone as an example of excuses at the end of my first post.
Didn't you read about a courageous nearly blind man make it to HALFORD as an example of not being afraid of going alone?

Speaking of meeting fellow JP fans, I shared a cab  with a boy nearly a half my age back to my hotel after a Priest show in '09 at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto, Canada flying from Japan to witness the historic British Steel Anniversary tour. We just talked like we were in a same age group.
Honestly speaking, BS is not my top favorite album and I prefer other albums but I felt I gotta experience this historic moment. I made a trip myself.
This trip gave me good excuse to work a little harder. I'm not rich at all, man.
When I bought a one day commuter ticket at a train station in Eaton Centre, the hot looking clerk who sold me the ticket said he was going to the show, too. 
He gave me some tips about getting the concert ticket.

Good unexpected thing happen when you try, such as getting a stick from Scott at the end of the show in exchange of a small present, a pair of socks w/ Japanese 
kabuki style design on them. I learned he threw it away on a stage afterword and that was a little bit shocking but my point was a thing like that could be useful on touring coz you get sweaty on the tour bus.  LOL

ANW, there are lots of diehards who won't miss JP shows for the world. Don't you make excuses, Bazooka Joe or I'll troll you around on the Quorum. LOL 
Well I understood BJ being young and his excuse was understandable before. No more, Joe coz you hit coming of age.

As for JP working on new material, the guys only announed the end of World tour and didn't say they'll retire. If you take the announcement literally, there's not much of a doubt they want to create some more. These guys have so much energy and creativity left and they can't stop their creativity. 
Just trust the guys, and wait for news in an old fashioned way. Fans these days are spoiled due to the age of Internet. Just wait and see.

Even if you go alone, you won't be for long. Many people with the same intrest as you. One big happy family. Just like Star Trek meetings. lol

Thanks for the encouragement HRMG!!!!  I'm truly counting the minutes until they announce the Canadian/Toronto dates....I must say, it's nice to have a place to bounce your thoughts/comments, so I'm loving the noticeboard, but can't wait to get official status, and wear the big girl pants LOL...I don't mind going alone to a JP concert, but sometimes ya just wanna connect with people from the mothership...

You are NEVER alone at a Priest show - EVER! It doesn't matter if you walk in alone, you will always walk out talking to many other fans that love this band just as much as you do. You will find yourself singing along with everyone around you and you will have the time of your life! So most definitely go and you will have the experience of a lifetime! Priest live will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up on end and you will be in absolute awe of how incredible they sound live!

Things that I've heard people that never saw Rob sing live before after HALFORD performed at Ozzfest and opening for Ozzy last year: "Rob had me at his first scream!" "I know they call him The Metal God, but now I KNOW WHY! HOLY SHIT!" and of course just a ton of awed expressions. Rob hasn't lost anything as many people try to say.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by metalgodess from Saturday, February 05, 2011 8:33:56 AM)

Whoa, man, it had nothing to do with kids or living in remote parts of the a teenager/20-somethinger I lived in house where metal was considered the devil, literally.  I had to hide crappy cassettes that I made by recording stuff off the radio, and tape them to the back of my furniture with the hopes that no one would find them.  When they were found, they got tossed after rather unpleasant confrontations.  By the time I moved out (or rather, BOLTED in my late 20's) none of my friends or colleagues were into metal, so my JP-ness stayed in the closet for years...until now, at 43, and if that makes me a loser, TOO FREAKING BAD...'cause life is too freakin' short and I gotta be who I am....even if my 10-year-old daughter and husband think I'm a wackjob headbanger (they are into dance music, help me now, but at least I let my kid listen to what she likes!)  So even if I go alone when they come, and get stuck banging my head solo with my fist in the air alone, I'm going to see Priest.

I was thinking more about folks who live in an accessible place, Not New Zealand or Guatemala.

If a fan lives in a remote country as an example, one could have tried to save for years. 
For example, it's been about 7 years since Rob came home. If one could have saved $200 / year ($20/ month), it's like $1400 saved since then.
That's enough for international airfare. One can also earn mileage from usage of credit cards if the cards offer such benefits.
If fans really want to go to concerts of their favorite bands, it's good to try to figure out to make it comes true.

My first JP concert was Operation Rock N' Roll in Dallas. I was a backseat driver from Austin. 8  hours round trip. We didn't even stay overnight there.
The next show was the reunion at the Budokan. It took more than a decade to witness them w/ Rob again.
Ever since experiencing the long wait, I tried to catch JP concert at least once. 

As close to witnessing 100 concerts of all kinds of bands over 2 decades, Judas Priest's concerts are the best for me. John Sykes is as great as JP.

Beat me to the punch on that one.

Asking someone to drive you from Guatemala might prove to be a bit of a problem too.

Well easier said than done if, like me, you live in a country that is isolated from other places and you HAVE to travel by air, which is a bummer if you can't afford international flights.
Having said that I am seeing Priest sometime this year come hell or high water.

What kind of excuse do you have not to go to a JP concert? Family? Kids? There are daycare centers, baby sitters.
Work? Use a paid holiday or just simply say "I'm sick" just for one day. 
Money? You can wait to buy CDs or put on hold to buy a couple of new clothes. 
Every concert is different as Rob says in an interview.

If JP doesn't come to your neighborhood, make a trip. Can't afford airfare? Go by bus. Can't afford bus fare? Ask your buddy to give you a ride.

As I mentioned in my MoM tour experience, I saw a nearly blind guy coming to a Nagoya show himself. 
It must have been hard for him to make it there but he tried. 
Lots of Japanese diehard JP fans are not afraid to go to shows by themselves. Not experiencing JP concerts is simply painful.

Been to other concerts? Well, if you haven't seen Judas Priest live, you ain't seen nothing yet.

When I listen to Rob's voice over the last 30-odd years, I don't say it has changed, it's more like it has evolved...what this guy can do is absofreakinlutely mystical.  The power, versatility and range is nothing short of a God-given gift.  The fact that JP is still out there melting faces and eardums of the faithful after all these years is proof enough of what they can do.  Nothing they put out can disappoint!!!!!  NEVER NEVER NEVER!!!!!  P.S.  I am a JP concert ""virgin"', so after waiting to see them for 25 years, they better come to the ACC in Toronto or I'll die!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
