That's what I mean, starbreaker just is over-critical of what seemed like it was a good night, ya know?

Ya'll need to fuck off.

There, there don't get so perturbed. I don't know where Texas Bitch is at. Perhaps it's a city alongside the border with Mexico. But you need to calm down, go to your neighbor, buy some meth - or just go to your own barn and pick the one you make - relax. 

BTW, you need to improve on your own product, it's making you irrational.

Oh BTW, what happened to this version of Blood Red Skies ? Long Gone in Europe my friends, long gone...IMO: Priest is a shell of itself in the US now. MpleSyrp

 Now I don't know whether to dread going or stay totally pumped up! Priest is my all time fav band also, that said I do appreciate good sound at any show.
The show is 10-25 in Bakersfield, the arena holds about 10,000 and has good acoustics. I saw Kiss, Ted Nugent and Skid Row there and the sound was good so hopefully the sound crew can get a good sound for us! I will post the results and still enjoy a farewell to the Metal Gods !!

thanks for the setlist preview Starbreaker 287! I was wondering about it and now... no more  

later MGD

Thank You Starbreaker.
Nice shot at the [.], whatever the hell that is??
I`ve thought the same thing about Blood Red Skies and the Terminator movies, but then Metal Gods describes those movies to a T !
My heyday in the clubs was from 87 thru 93, did do the old Broco Bowl though, that was awesome. But played a lot in Austin and Houston as well as a few places throughout Oklahoma and Louisiana. Dallas City Limits was a big place we did frequently in Big D.
I can`t say from my perspective that the band looked bored,  but they could`ve been better.  Rob and Glenn really didn`t have much interaction. Ritchie was into it, smiling most of the night!
Everyone has an off night, but it was still a great show.
I guess short of hovering over Scott and changing the mics out, may not have been much they could do.

Guitardude, olive branch accepted.  If Judas Priest does come back to the Dallas area, I will be there as well.  I've played some big shows, I was in a band that opened a Latin Festival at Starplex once, played Arcadia a few times and other festivals at outdoor Anette Straus stage adjacent to the Meyerson.  Probably like you I've played at most places Dallas musicians have played: Curtain Club, Club DaDa, Firewater etc...

So yes, I understand we're at the mercy of the soundcrew at times.  Couldnt they fix it?  Could both boom mics above the drums have not been working?  The sound of the drums can make a band sound ultra professional or cheap.  It was a pleasure to watch 3 great drummers right in a row.  Not a BLS fan but their drummer was really good.  Zakk has a 3 note range, but an amazing lead guitar player.

Sound aside, it was the energy from the band that bothered me.  Rob wasnt even on stage during the intro to Blood Red Skies which is one of my favorite songs ever.  I always thought that song should have been used in the Terminator movies.

[-]  I'm not sure how to address you because I'm not sure if this clever symbol signifies that you are perpetually on your period or if it symbolizes your asshole.

I called it as I saw it, if that makes your vagina swell up, I can't help you.  Maybe I can Fed-Ex you a giant Texas cactus you shove in your ass to douche with.

Judas Priest loves Texas, and Texas loves Judas Priest.  Too bad you dont have the guts to state where you are from.  I'm from Texas Bitch.

Let me extend the olive branch here, I was really pissed yesterday, nothing to do with you or this site and I let your comments get me to me, sorry!
Now, was the show perfect, no, but was still good IMO, but could have been better.
They have always been one of the most flawless bands live, ever!
But from my vantage point, I could hear Ritchie fine and Scott was kicking it hard.And yes, the high end was lacking.
I`ve never played a venue that size, but as you know, live is another animal, each member can being doing their part perfectly, but acousitics come into play and the soundman themselves have the control over what we here.
I still feel Rob did a great job on Blood Red Skies. But to each their own right?
But no matter, if they ever come back around here, I`ll be there, because Texas is just BADASS!

 Yet, I've seen them on YT so far this year and they seem to have a great rapport with the people in attendance, Rob's voice sounds GREAT!, there is video footage (documented proof) of Glenn Tipton actually jumping! and of Ian Hill actually smiling. 
Perhaps you look at the glass half empty when it's really half full. 

Not surprising because Texas sucks.

Too bad you were not criticizing Glenn's solo the previous 25 years he's played it before today.

Please let us know Healer!!  I hope you will bring us all GREAT NEWS!!!  Hope you have a great time... I still had a great time overall.  I spent the day with my brother who is also a huge fan and an old friend I've known since grade school.

It's a shame to hear this as I'm about to attend 3 shows. But you know, we'd be complaining just as much if they didn't tour. I'm gonna go and enjoy being with the new friends I've made and enjoy it for what it is, A goodby. Hopefully they  will work out the kinks and try to enjoy themselves.

Maple Syrup, it pains me to have written this and it is sad to see the band going out like this.  I've seen other people complaining about the sound on Facebook but still being nice.  Judas Priest deserves respect but it seems like everyone just kisses their ass and no one has told them what they need to be told.  IMO this entire tour is a mistake.  They should have taken some time off.  Rob Halford never had any eye contact with anyone in the band and really, Glenn looked bored.  I really believe the guys are ready for it be over.  They look tired.  I went to say good-bye to favorite band and we did, me and some friends. 

Nostradamus bombed, so they release another live album, toured on British Steel and are now touring on The Chosen Few.  What the hell??

I thought the setlist was pretty good, just not executed well.  I can take the band looking tired etc but the sound?  A band with traditionally terrific sound and production has NO EXCUSE for poor sound.  Ever seen an opening band be louder than the Headliner?  I NEVER HAVE.

I dont believe the band doesnt have it anymore, I believe they do, I just believe they're tired and sick of each other, sick or touring and there may be some bad blood between some of the members, who knows.  I thought they were pretty good on Idol. 

This last tour sounds NOTHING like Touch of Evil Live or Live '98, NOTHING. 

I dont like writing these things and I'm stressing out over it as the band has been a part of my life since I was 11 years old, since I heard my uncle playing Hell Bent for Leather in his car and he was going on and on about this 'new band' he had discovered.  I bought Hell Bent for Leather and Van Halen with allowance money and quickly bought their older albums.  I was hooked on their sound and will forever be a Judas Priest fan.  Judas Priest is my favorite band all all time, the band and their music mean a lot to me.   I have many great memories with their music, concerts, have forged friendships, have covered several of their songs in bands I've been in (I play the drums). 

I really don't understand how the opening bands could have had such great sound and they didnt.  It's unexcusable.  There were a lot of people in my section that left, they left in the middle of the concert.  Stunning man, stunning.  I stayed until the last note, to wave goodbye.
