Sorry, was on a roll.

I'll admit that I could also make do without LAM, as well, and just end the set with Painkiller or YGOTC, make is a true "last chance with the 'Priest" (although that'd be kinda sad). Heck, even with LAM, the setlist was a rockin' one. No part-acoustic, part-electric Diamonds and Rust or Angel. Nothing from Nostradamus, either.

Yeah, I'll admit that I'm a bit biased toward Metal Gods. Just love it. It's a glorious piece when played live, IMO, and it's current place as the 2nd song on the setlist is perfect because, as of late, the first song that JP hits us is with is usually a fast-paced one (Hellion/Electric Eye, Rapid Fire, Dragonaut). You get super excited and immediately start headbanging and having a good time; and when the fire/smoke clears (aka the song ends), you get the introduction. Who was it that hit you with a full-on in-your-face Heavy Metal song? Why, the Metal Gods in all their glory!

Also: have you noticed the name of the stage on which the band plays in that vid? You see it a few times over the course of the set, but JP were playing on the "True Metal" stage! Can't get better than that!

And the Wacken crowd? Loved it!!! Now THOSE are some great fans! The kid weeping near the end of YGOTC, the fans bowing down to Rob near the end of Painkiller? Many of them singing along? Shit, that's amazing!!! Yeah, they were slow at first to get into it, but I'd rather have them than the gum-chewer that appears in Rising in the East.

 Thanks Vail good suggestion, I rock out every time they play those standards, just with less enthusiasm as time goes by, it is my opinion only, I just think sometimes they struggle in this day and age to be relevant, then they come up with a great album out of the blue and add Richie things are good, They are at Wacken the biggest Concert for heavy, death and. Hardcore bands and they play LAM, but what I  noticed the most is how they are consumate professionals and won the crowd over in the end ! And lots of young kids singing along to Turbo lover! News on the new album and write up with Rob wwwmblabbermouth.net

Nice review, Acolyte!!!

On the setlist front, however, I'd say that Metal Gods should remain on the setlist, maybe switch between that and BTL halfway through a tour.

Well the Battle cry blu-ray is spectacular, the sound and light show are insane!! Still would like to see 1 still cam shot as an option to watch , but way less jumpy than other shows, great solo in you got another thing coming, would still like to see a lot less of BS represented and more SWOD ,SC.KM, POE anything but metal gods, living after midnite and breaking the law, just heard them enough! 
[Vaillant 3.0] Monday, March 28, 2016 10:06:07 PM 
Damn!!! You're right. It was for the Metal Masters tour.

Never used mine because I bought a ticket for a seat, like, 20 rows away from the stage but it was still the best seat in the house.

"Nostra tour?" No. I believe you are thinking of the Metal Masters tour.

Almost drove to Penn to see that one even for lawn seats having already seen it three times! LOL!!!

What did the Fight package have? The best thing that appeared on these recent "packages" from JP (that I know of) was the code that one could use to get a GA ticket for the Nostradamus tour. I thought that was pretty cool.

[guidogodoy] Sunday, March 27, 2016 11:28:58 AM 
Agree. I had no reason to think that there was any sort of combo. Yeah, I could have bought the Blu-ray, ripped the audio and segmented up the songs and burned them to CD (phew) but just easier to buy the CD and make the usual copies for my car and daily play + Blu-ray that I'll likely convert to DVD to keep the file small and be able to play on my other machines / backup on HD.

BTW, HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!!!

[Vaillant 3.0] Saturday, March 26, 2016 1:10:39 AM 
Nope. Quite frankly I always thought that it would be three separate items.

DVD is worth the buy, though. Amazing from start to finish. Excellent and absolutely surreal performance by the metal gods and a great and exciting crowd to go with it.

As for the CD? Well, let's just say that it will be staying in my car CD player for a loooooooooooong time, methinks.

In a nutshell: BUY IT!!!

is it just me , or did the way the promotion was worded for Battle Cry read that it was a Blu-ray CD or DVD CD combo not 3 separate items ???
[Vaillant 3.0] Wednesday, March 23, 2016 5:55:02 PM 
Wonder if they sell tickets just to watch the show? After all, Hollywood isn't too far from me. Only problem might be the lack of Glenn...again.

Saw Slayer for the first time Monday. New venue to me, I quite liked the setup. Beer garden in the back, a rail, and then an open area in the front, where anyone underage or not drinking could go.

Opener was Carcass. not familar with them, did a good set
Testament was next, great set, played some older stuff, very nice to see them
Slayer was good, glad I saw them

Highlite was testament. That and the roughly 1 million posters with prohibited acts and items that listed moshing and crowd surfing as grounds for ejection. Then all 3 bands encouraged the mosh pits.....

LOL to see 49 messages posted but ONE came through! Too funny. What a loon.

As for the computer fix? Java was the culprit on mine. Same problem as described below. Ran a scan, found some malware, deleted and reinstalled Java. Did the trick. HAD to be something cross-platform as it was happening on some of my Macs and some of my PCs (others, I hadn't used all that much so they never updated). BTW, I always manually update anyway as I've seen that issue before.

VERY glad to see it wasn't the cut / cut / cut of the last video release from Priest. Like Bud commented, it was just distracting.
This looks to be wonderful. Deserves a share.

Opener was rival sons. out of Long beach. They are.... interesting. the keyboard player is very high energy. musically, not sure what they are. I need not see them again.

Vail, yep, Dio is missed. I have seen sabbath with Dio, Martin and now Ozzy. I would for sure rate Dio sabbath as the best
[Vaillant 3.0] Saturday, March 05, 2016 8:32:35 PM 
Thanks for the review, HB! They were here in Cali early last month and will be back in September. Still on the fence about it, though. If I DO go, it would be for Tony and Geezer (yeah, still miss Dio).

Nice! A quick and to the point review. Kind of you to mention the resident trollls too. You were always too kind, HB.

Might just have to try to catch this one as I have no big concerts on the horizon. Just Costa Rica and Brazil. Now, to see if the dates match anything I can actually attend!

Who was their warm-up band(s)?

Really glad to see that the camera wasn't all "jumping around" like the last vid. THAT was a bloody mess. Just film the band! Nothing more is really needed for the Metal Gods!

http://loudwire.com/judas-priest-metal-gods-exclusive-premiere/  i agree Guido, Richie has more than stepped in and filled the shoes , and a special one off show with KK back would be great , meanwhile enjoy this

[guidogodoy] Wednesday, March 02, 2016 6:21:42 PM 
Deep Purple now in the R&R Hall of Fame? PRIEST PRIEST PRIEST!!! I'd sign a petition for that and pay big $ to get that tour going even if it is a one-off!! 

That said, Richie is a KILLLER and RoS is just outstanding. Still, I am with KK in that they should NOT do the goofy Maiden three-guitar nonsense and don't think that Richie would mind stepping aside for a show or two (hopefully close to me ).

I've never minded getting older, it's all a state of mind anyway, at least for as long as you have your health. I'm in administration at a nursing home. Watched many an old person go downhill. I only hope when I reach that state I'm fortunate enough to go quickly. It does give you clarity though about the end. I don't fear it and have many years still to go.

Had to look up Dornroeschen, Sleeping Beauty, got it now. First thing that came to mind was Rip Van Winkle, completely different story there. lol

I watched 9 to 5 yesterday. Oh my, it's 35 years old now (1980), I found myself pointing things out like, "Did you notice there's not a single computer in this whole building?" I mentioned Jane Fonda looking so frumpy....Flora looked at me and said, "I don't know who Jane Fonda is Mom, bit before my time here"  oh my, does this mean I've turned into my Nannie (grandmother) at last? She used to do the same thing. lol  I was 15 when that came out. I'm Old. HA!
