I haven't been on this board in a few years, but just re-signed up so I could tell the world how awesome Priesat was in Edmonton on Tuesday night!  The guys played like the warriors they are, for about 2 hours 45 minutes.  I anticipated them busting out just a few songs where Rob could hit the high notes just to say "See, I can still do it when I want to", but he was going upstairs all freaking night!  He truly IS THE metal God!  And Rob let the crowd sing all of "Breaking The Law"- my voice is just coming back, days later!

The band was great; Glenn as always, and Scott was a monster behind the kit- he makes it look so easy!  Enjoyed Richie's performance immensely, he's a great fit for the band.  Gained a whole new respect for Ian, however.  He isn't fancy by any means, but I love the way he just leans right into it and gets the job done.  Ian Hill's bass playing is, IMHO, the bedrock that the rest of the band stands on- well done, mate!

Thank you SO MUCH for coming to Edmonton!  I had to drive 2 hours to get there then two hours to get home again, but would do it again in a heartbeat.  You love your fans and it showed, I hope you felt the love we sent back to the stage!

Obviously someone who does not keep up with the band.
You think they would have noticed the obvious age difference (or in severe need of glasses)? KK has not been preserved in some time suspended chamber. 

I saw this, but didn't want to be the first to comment on the obvious delusion. How could they think that was KK???

Saw The Priest in San Diego on the 19th of this month. They were awesome.  Saw them in 1979, 1983 and somewhere around 2001. I have never seen them put on a bad show, but this past show in San Diego was special. The band is just so professional and entertaining.  For me, it was like my 1st time at Disneyland. The fans were loud and rocking hard, singing all the words and screaming loud. KK and Glenn were as tight as ever. Ian solid as a rock and Rob, what can you say. Halford is bar none the GREATEST heavy metal signer of all time.  Almost two weeks has gone by since the show and I still cannot stop thinking about it.  I so wish I could have caught them another night.  Priest Rules!

Thank you for that update, though it was posted over a month ago, I just read it. I posted something in the "Got my ticket" thread, my question was why has the Winston Salem had no floor or direct side seats available since damn near the tickets went on sale? We go to alot of shows in the Va. Beach area and I have a few theories but I just don't get it. The fact that good seats haven't been available since day one has me slightly baffeled, ORCH seats are out there, but of course they run $250 plus, which we are toying with going with, but damn after reading your post (Maple Syrup)  and the fact that we are fairly up to speed on getting good seats we can't put a finger on it, unless one of my theories that BLS is drawing their following in droves. Just a little rant here while not getting it, thanks.

[Maple Syrup] Tuesday, September 20, 2011 9:57:33 AM 
sad day for Priest at the izod center in NJ - 11/18/11. Half of the arena is roped off and the stage has been moved up to the middle of the arena. i guess they are already anticipating poor tix sales and they are figuring the toal capacity at the show to be 8,000, if that. The arena holds 20,000. I am also hearing tix sales have been poor in detroit and other parts of the US. IMO JP has saturated the US market in recent years touring here every summer pretty much since 2006 and add in KK's departure and Priest will not be seeing the crowds in the US that have had in Europe and South America/Mexico on this Epitaph tour. The sun is surely setting here in the US for Priest. Time to wave goodbye one last time.

Most concerts in the U.S. are now seated concerts, which means that even on the floor they put folding chairs out and people are asigned seat numbers by their ticket. Nobody actually sits in them for the most part but security pretty much keeps you in the seats you have been asigned, now if there happens to be a few empty seats closer than you are, you can move to them, but if the original buyers of those seats show up you'll have to move back to your original seat.

Festival seating is when the floor is standing room only, which means there are no seats and your position in the crowd is only hampered by your ability to get to the front. These shows fell out of favor in the late 80's, early 90's due to a few crowd surges that killed a few people. So festival seating is usually only used in small venues these days.

One question from overseas... main floor seatting means people are supposed to be sitten just in front of the stage?
[spapad] Friday, August 19, 2011 8:17:07 PM 
Could be that they are going by venue size and capability for this tour. The Winston Salem place will sell well as they are only seeking to fill a half arena. They are playing some more intimate gigs than they used to back in the day. That is just fine by me as it makes it a show with not a bad seat in the house. I'm going to one pit style festival seating and one seated show. I'm more excited about the festival seating. I've never gotten a bad view at those shows because I'm clinging to the rails! lol  Fall just can't rush along fast enough now. lol

 Yes . The 1st time I saw them was in Charlotte NC for the RAM IT DOWN tour, a great night.  The 2nd was at the Alltel Pavilion in Raleigh NC on the OPERATION ROCK & ROLL tour in 1991. I had good seats , maybe 10-12th row, and after Alice Cooper gave us a hell of an opening show the PRIEST came out and blew everybody away. It is definitely one of the best concerts I ever been to. It was hot as hell and the audience was wild, drinking beer and taking their clothes off, and the boys were playing like madmen, The last time I saw them was again in the same place in Raleigh as part of  OZZFEST 2004. They played a great show " opening" for BLACK SABBATH....but...after that...nothing.


SO yeah, I'm super happy with my 4th row tix and will keep hoping that they schedule some more shows maybe in Charlotte, Virginia. South Carolina or somewhere close so I can go see them again.

[spapad] Friday, August 19, 2011 5:53:18 PM 
4th row! Awesome. I noticed when I looked at the concert arena map that the pit has already sold out and the second tier is filling up quickly. They should have played NC more often. Hope you and your kid really enjoy the show.

 Thanks again SPADAD for all the info. I was going to lose my mind looking for the presale to the WS show! Hopefully " no presale" should mean if you buy the tickets just when they come out you should get really good seats. First people to buy( buying the $89 tix) could get front row seats? Wow, you never see that anymore. By the way, Ticketmonster DOES rip you off but not as much as the other  scalpers.
[spapad] Tuesday, August 09, 2011 6:12:29 PM

Well the problem with Madison Square Garden is that Priest has been banned from playing there ever since the 1984 concert, when the audience went wild and started ripping seats off etc., causing a quarter of million in damages.

I too have a question regarding tour dates. IZOD Center is a pretty far location for concerts. If anybody from the band or their management reads this, that would be great. My question is in addtition to playing all the dates announced, why are you not playing in New York City itself at Madison Aqwuare Garden or in Connecticut? It is one thing if this another tour or something, than that is understandable. But if this is going to be you very last world tour, than it would be only fair if you could please play at MSG in NYC or at one of the three Connecticut arenas (XL Center in Hartford, Harbor Yard arena in Bridgeport or at Mohegan Sun). I realize Connecticut is a small market, but if this is going to be your last big tour, than I think it is only fair that you give the fans in Connecticut a chance to say good bye. The same goes for the fans in New York City itself and to play one last gig at MSG would be very great moment for heavy metal music! - Best to you you on the Epitaph tour!
[spapad] Monday, July 18, 2011 11:22:46 PM 
They said the tour would last two years, what do you want? They announce them  as they get them booked. If you don't like what you see. Wait. You obviously don't want to travel, so just wait.

 Thank you Longshaor for understanding my question. Sure writing "travel" is easy but right now the 2 closest shows are IZOD ( a14 hour round trip) and Florida ( a 22 hour round trip). It just seems weird to me that after playing a bunch of shows in Texas & Canada the Priest would not tour the East Coast except NY/NJ & FL. One of the besy concerts I've ever seen was the Priest in Raleigh, NC in1991 where the band was wild and the audience was one of the wildest I've ever seen ( and I've seen a lot). No concerts in DC? Atlanta? the Carolinas?Virginia?. I am hoping the band will announce the East Coast leg soon. Maybe they will take an x-mass break and then come back. If not then maybe I will " travel" to the IZOD show if tix are ever available ( there is a rumor that the ticket hawks already have hoarded most of them). I've been lucky enough to see the Priest 3 times but I would love to catch them one more time. 
[Longshaor] Monday, July 18, 2011 12:24:11 PM

Hi dude, I'm sure you've seen the tour schedule before but I'm just posting it here for convenience of discussion. Perhaps the dates already confirmed may not be close enough to you but I know as much as you if JP will add any more dates besides these. They may or not. Are you saying that the tickets are not available for purchase yet? The dates I see are far into the year in November. Perhaps that is why the tickets are not available yet. It's now just middle of July.

It's not ok to answer your very valid question with a brute: "Go travel."

I'm still confused about Priest's norcal date in Concord on the 27th. I looked up tickets on ticketbastard but nothing shows up. I was originally going to try and see them back home in socal at the san bernardino show (where I saw them for my first time back in 08) but I'm not sure I'll have the money to travel back home. Does anyone know what's up with this?
[emoyag] Monday, July 11, 2011 7:31:14 PM 
 Ok, here's the deal: You guys play all over the States till you get to New York and then... you go back to Canada ...and then...just when you are ready to hit the EAST COAST... you do 2 gigs in Florida and that's it!!!   ARE U KIDDING ME??? . IS THIS A SLAP IN THE FACE TO YOUR MILLIONS OF FANS THAT LIVE IN THE EAST COAST???  Maybe you are just taking an X-mass break and you will
come back and do the east coast later???  If that is so PLEASE let us know now so we don't lose our minds waiting for a gig that is reachable. The East Coast of the USA is much ,much more than just NY and FL. LET US KNOW NOW PLEASE
[Budred] Saturday, July 09, 2011 4:51:58 PM 
When I first saw it I really did get confused. I remember the Heaven and Hell ad still being up
so I thought it was an old date. It made me wonder if I knew what year it was.(I got a little nervous)(LOL)
After much thinking and finally asking my wife if this is 2011 I realized it was a date for the current tour.
That's when I saw the show details and clicked on. It had them playing around 9:00pm and it said Dio
and Heaven and Hell. That really confused me and led to my post here. Then I went to Dio's web page
and after looking around for a minute I saw something about Dio Desciples. OK, I haven't lost my f#cking
mind yet. Cool.

Allston, Ma.
Judas Priest
Suicidal Tendencies

Then on the show details it gives performance times.
Under Dio it says Dio and Heaven and hell.

Maybe someone here can clue me in.

This is 2011 right?
Dio is dead right?

I would really like to know why Priest is not coming near D.C. on this tour closest in 4 1/2 hours away love to see them rock the NATIONS CAPITOL
[Budred] Thursday, July 07, 2011 9:53:44 AM 
Thanks for both of those posts. I really don't follow the guys individually as much as a band.
That was the first time I was at Glenn's site. I'm glad you posted the tour book link also. I'm not
sure if they are for sale or not but I would love to have the Point of Entry book. I was checking
out the Fuel For Life book also. Thank goodness that look didn't last. KK with curls? WTF!!!!
..and Glenn with a spiky kind of look. Man am I glad that was a fail.
Thanks again. Take care.

Of course, if you're more into 'trips' down MetalGods' Memory Lane, a collection of tourbooks can be found:
[\~AuntieB~/] Thursday, July 07, 2011 8:14:52 AM 
A lot of fans follow the tour on a couple of the band members' FB profiles.  If you haven't already, keep up with Glenn on his site:  ... or simply access via the button in the left margin \m/

Come on Priest East Coast here! Massachusetts is waiting for you guys!
[emoyag] Tuesday, July 05, 2011 11:45:31 PM 
 Still waiting for those MISSING EAST COAST TICKETS. Last time I checked there are a bunch of dates in Texas & Canada ( lucky people) but NOTHING on the East Coast except NY & FL. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the East Coast the most populated section of North America?? Come on guys, get youalls butts down yonder here to good ol North Carolina ya hear!!!!  WE LOVE OUR PRIEST!!! You got a problem with that???
[rjolly68] Monday, July 04, 2011 10:35:22 PM

Y cant I purcehase tickets for Izod center? I see broker sites have them. Did they go on sale to public? Whats going on with this..Very dissapointing. Horrible thing they did to the fans without advance notice of ticjet sales and no links on site to buy for 28 years and this is horrible.

 You have a point. I'm all for seeing the rarer stuff getting played. 

I'm enjoying listening to Heart of a Lion on YT. 

[Maple Syrup] Thursday, June 30, 2011 10:22:45 AM 
All valid points H End. Couldnt agree more. Only rare are Blood Red Skies and Starbreaker. Failed to deliver rare gems as promised. MpleSyrp

As a die-hard, lifelong Priest fan…I have to say the Epitaph tour and set list leave a lot to be desired.
Of course, the biggest disappointment is KK’s absence. Frankly, I miss him more than when Halford left. I also believe the fact that his replacement, while musically competent, was selected because of his resemblance to KK. It reeks of a Gene Simmons stunt.
I am also largely disappointed with the set list. In the press prior to the tour we were promised a set list for the long-time fans full of rarities or songs never played before live. That is not what was delivered. Aside from a few good selections, like “Blood Red Skies”, it is the same old, same old.
I understand that a major constraint in the selection of songs is the diminished ability of Rob’s voice, but they could have delivered rare, less strenuous songs.
If the true intent was to deliver a rarity filled, career retrospective set list, selecting a minimum one song per album, then songs should have been selected using the following guide rules:
  • Is it a Judas Priest original? That means no cover songs should be played i.e. “Green Manalishi” & “Diamonds & Rust”.
  • Has the song ever appeared on a Judas Priest or Halford live album? I will assume this tour will result in a live cd/dvd, if so the main selling point is the inclusion of never before played songs. This includes Rob singing songs from “Jugulator” and “Demolition”.
  • Songs should not be too vocally demanding so Rob can sing them night after night without him doubling over and looking at the ground constantly.
Bearing the above in mind, here is my suggested set list:
  1. Rocka Rolla = Rocka Rolla
  2. Sad Wings of Destiny = Dreamer Deceiver
  3. Sin After Sin = Here Comes the Tears
  4. Stained Class = Saints in Hell
  5. Killing Machine = Before the Dawn
  6. British Steel = Steeler
  7. Point of Entry = Don’t Go
  8. Screaming for Vengeance = Devil’s Child
  9. Defenders of the Faith = Night Comes Down
  10. Turbo = Reckless
  11. Ram It Down = Hard as Iron
  12. Painkiller = One Shot at Glory
  13. Jugulator = Cathedral Spires
  14. Demolition = Metal Messiah
  15. Angel of Retribution = Worth Fighting For
  16. Nostradamus = Conquest
After these you can play whatever you wish, I personally cannot imagine a show without “Hell Bent for Leather” and the motorcycle.
My two cents.

Waitin for PRIEST here on the east coast of the ol' USA. Just dates in NY & Florida aint gonna cut it!!!  
[Vaillant 3.0] Wednesday, June 29, 2011 2:43:03 PM 
If it's anything like the San Bernardino date, you'll have to check back daily at Live Nation/Ticketmaster until you see it there. Don't worry, it'll show up eventually.

Toronto - November 22, ACC -  Go to, I believe you can see a whole bunch of the tour dates and venues.

[evilelf] Thursday, June 09, 2011 1:35:53 PM 
Does anyone know when tickets go on sale for the October 22 show at the San Manuel Amphitheater and the October 25 show at the Gibson Amphitheater?
[carlywarlywains] Wednesday, June 08, 2011 7:47:15 AM

Other than Zak doing a ten minute guitar solo Black Label Society kicks ass live.
I could pass on Thin Lizzy though.
(just my opinion, it only matters to me)
[The Controller of Planet X] Monday, May 30, 2011 10:24:33 PM 
I'm glad they're comin to the Izod in Jersey. I saw Ozzy there last year and the accoustics ruled. Unfortunate that the supporting acts blow. I mean, other countries get Queensryche, Saxon or Motorhead, but we get Black Label Society and Thin Lizzy? Uh...fuck that noise.

Hi - obviously new here, but have loved Priest since my hubby introduced me to them.  They put on an awesome show - we haven't missed a Toronto Date in a decade or so. 

Was wondering if anyone has heard anything about Ontario tour dates?  It would absolutely break my heart to find out that we couldn't see their final tour.

Thanks in advance,

[tom peddlesden] Wednesday, May 25, 2011 8:48:39 PM 
Hey, new here and would like to comment on opening bands. Saxon and Grave Digger-neither play North America since our radio airplay in both the US and Canada is lame. Both bands are amazing and it would be great to see them live.
On Epitaph it seems we will get Thin Lizzy and Black Label Society-neither I want to see
[Deege] Monday, April 18, 2011 10:42:12 AM 
Hey I'm new here, Just wanted to know if Priest makes a stop in Tampa, how bout we get a whole crew together and hit the show? Just a thought...
[acolyte55] Wednesday, April 13, 2011 7:04:58 PM 
yah true enough bud, wishful thinking lol,
[Budred] Tuesday, April 12, 2011 9:36:38 PM 
That would work too.
You have to admit though, it's kind of cool to see a band play before Priest that does really good and you're
thinking "Wow I really liked that" and then Priest comes out and destoys them.

[The Controller of Planet X] Sunday, April 10, 2011 11:42:22 PM 
Personally I'd like to see Accept open for Priest. Their older stuff is already awesome, but "Blood of the Nations" has got to be one of the best metal albums of the last decade.
