 As HB I dont often travel to see shows.  Last JP tour I was hoping that I could travel for work to a city they were in, then got hit with a travel ban.  So far I went to Edmonton to see Metallica.  luckily thats less than 3 hours, but only really did that because my daughter wants to see them.  its a 12 to 15 hour drive for me to see JP upcoming.  just not sure how I am gonna make this all happen.

Yup, I feel for most of us! Same problems. When reading Nupe's post, I was thinking the same. Sure, more disposable income now but I am ALSO looking at that same scenario. Costs, travel, time, hotels. I think back to my Detroit '90 Painkiller ticket stub of, what $10-20 USD? (... and smile....)

 As Acolyte - I feel for you Nupe it is what I routinely pay to see a concert in Canada, ticket price around 100+ canadian, fuel to travel to concert 100+ canadian or approx. 200  canadian to fly,+time off work approx 200 canadian + hotel room 200 canadian and if I drive it is anywhere between an 11 -12 hour round trip I live 500 kms approx from the nearest big city that routinely does concerts  + food and beverages it can be a 800 canadian touch, and Godforbid I buy meet and greets  or I go across the border(Scorpions) in the USA and pay exchange

2018 is shaping up to be a GREAT year!

Regarding the ticket prices... for the first time I'm actually really having to consider whether or not I'm going to see them. Their only concert in Finland is at the Hyvinkää Rockfest, and one-day tickets cost 89 euros. Add to that travelling to the location and a possible hotel room and I'm looking at a potential 150-170 euro bill at least. On the other hand, two-day tickets cost a "mere" 119 euros, so I could max out the entertainment factor and go see Ozzy Osbourne on Wednesday (none of the other bands in the festival are interesting to me). Although that could mean another expensive night at the hotel...

In comparison: in 2011 I saw them at Sauna Open Air in Tampere, and only went to watch them. A one-day ticket there cost 58 euros, plus train tickets there and back which were 29 euros. That's 87 euros in total, still less than just the ticket to the Hyvinkää festival. Granted, I was a student at the time so I got a 50% discount on train tickets; with normal prices the whole trip would've cost me 106 euros. Meanwhile their indoor concerts at the Helsinki Icehall have always been 50-60 euros, and travel there has been almost free because I've been able to use local public transport.

On the other hand, I have far more disposable income now. During the previous years I've either been a student or unemployed, but now I'm in my first full year of a properly paid job and it looks very likely I'll be continuing for at least much of the next year as well. So the idea of splashing upwards to 200 euros to see two great heavy metal acts, one of whom is definitely retiring and another which might follow suit quite soon as well, is certainly tempting.

As for the new album, it certainly looks and sounds like another masterpiece! Will definitely preorder it ASAP.

 Hell yeah guido this is awesome ..... There's just nothing more exciting than a new Judas Priest release people who aren't in our world just don't understand that there just isn't anything more exciting than a new Priest album !!   This I will bet is going to be excellent especially how EVERY JP album sounds so different ..... Angel Of Retribution to Redeemer Of Souls to now Firepower ..... It's like Christmas for us guido all of us Judas Priest fanatics and I'm sure I can get tickets cheaper as long as I'm in the building to see them,don't have to have GA so I'm just going to have to get cheapest tickets I can find ,I can't freaking miss this show. Fuckin love Judas Priest can anything be better than Judas Priest?   Not happenin'

 I fucking LOVE the album cover!!!  Hell yeah and Vail was right on with the prediction of art work reminiscent of Screaming For Vengeance ! I love the art how obviously it's a futuristic metallic horse another mystical being in the Judas Priest repertoire !  

Can't wait to listen to this album Firepower in its entirety man am I stoked!!

Fuckin love Judas Priest man,they mean so much to me and I for one have to pinch myself and remind myself that it's 2018 coming up and Judas Priest is delivering us British heavy metal in its traditional form I just can't believe it Glenn is 70 years old and kicking that fret boards ass of course and then Richie,this guy is a freakin modern day Randy Roads of this generation it's insane.

Fuckin love this band from 1981 till today!!!! Hails to our mighty metal gods(as I bow down in honor And respect lol)
