| Rob was just a little off. Throat issues maybe? More often than not he sounded fine but several times his voice got really raspy and scratchy. Richie and Andy are doing great even though Andy isn't doing much. Richie is getting all the lead work. His only solo was during Hell Bent. They swapped out Angel for The Green Manalishi which I thought was cool. The real problem for me though is how much it doesn't sound like Priest. Richie is doing a great job and I think Firepower could be their overall best effort but he changes the classic songs so much that their is a noticeable difference. It would be great if they were a tribute act but they aren't so it's hard to take. It can't and won't happen but I would prefer to see Richie only do his songs live or stay true to the original if they have to do the older stuff. If you don't mind them sounding different you will love them right now. As a band they are playing really tight. A little more movement out of Rob this time around. Richie is great with the crowd. I think this tour is better than the last two. Probably not as positive as everyone wanted to hear I don't know. I strive for honesty. Take it how you want.|

|"Keep the site going..." heck, I'll join that movement! :-)|
As per the below, where is the Detroit debriefing? Heck, I have video of that show already...where are the details? How did it go?
|[guidogodoy] Thursday, March 22, 2018 10:51:17 PM|| |
|Well hope you catch a good day, then. Like arquitecture, you'll love it, then if it is nice. Walk around the Fox theater area by the new Comerica Park. Stop in at Hockeytown for a drink. Fox is where I saw one of the greatest Priest shows ever on the ROS tour. Another historic building. Just research where you ARE going before you go. Head in early and go to the Ren Cen (big ass glass GM building on the Detroit River) and walk Riverwalk a bit. Perfectly safe. Rainy / cold day? Park there and take the People Mover around to have lunch at Greektown. There are stops at the Ren Cen and within walking distance of Pegasus. Just doesn't go as far down as Masonic, as I said. Hell, you could try to slip in to see the Henry Ford commissioned Diego Rivera mural in the Detroit Institute of Arts right there depending on the timing if the weather sucks. No time? Temple bar! Park and walk to the venue! |
HB, don't blame you a bit about Denver either. I dig that city too! Gotta give props to Detroit, though. Masonic would just be a damn cool place to see Priest!

| I would have loved to see them there. decided on Denver (loveland) cause it was cheaper, closer, and I wanted to see the area more|

| Cool, thanks. Even more anxious now. |
I do love old architecture as well. Sometimes my wife and I drive to Pittsburgh just to walk and look at some of the old buildings.
|[guidogodoy] Thursday, March 22, 2018 3:10:12 PM|| |
|Oh, the Masonic Temple in Detroit is glorious! If you googled it, you have the stats. Certainly the largest Masonic temple but like the second largest STAGE in the world if memory serves. It is a freakin' historic icon! Right on the Cass corridor. Go with plenty of time to see it in the daylight to check out the arquitecture, not just at night. WIKI the thing!! Ya ain't gonna see much like it. 1920's arquitecture at its finest. Take advantage. I am way jealous. I'd LOVE to see Priest there. |
As for parking? You have a ton of lots in the area. Just park you car deep so they'll steal a couple before they get to yours and you be fine...heh..seriously. No worries. Just don't be dumb. It is safe and lighted. Lots of movement in that area. It can get crowded if anything else is going on there. Catch some good weather? Head for Greektown for some food! Pegasus is right there at Greektown Casino. Fine choice. Cheap and good provided you don't have a thousand other events going on downtown. All the stadiums are there + concert arenas. The People Mover = the elevated train you can scope out on a map that'll zip you around the city in a big loop for fun and ease of parking (careful of what time it closes) but it doesn't go all the way out to Masonic. Close, though. Take a look at the map.
Hit me with a PM if you need any specifics. Again, jealous! Enjoy the show and the PLACE! Masonic is great!

| I think your second album will be yellow but i don't know. Albums are late because they were pre labeled but sent out after release day. Mine was late as well. If I figure out how to post pics i'll post one of the two lps. The red looks really cool. That orange should be sweet too. I even like the yellow. Curious to hear what your second lp looks like.|
|[Budred] Thursday, March 22, 2018 5:50:06 AM|| |
| Can't wait to see that venue. Googled it. It looks amazing. Part of my excitement for the show is the venue. Any parking tips? I'll gps it but is it downtown or no? Anything you have to say about it?|
|[guidogodoy] Wednesday, March 21, 2018 9:20:49 PM|| |
|Masonic for DEETROIT. Man, WISH I were going. Alas, can't get there. Way too far.|
I have the black and white autographed LP. Orange and black is coming from the UK. Got the shipping note the day before the album was released but it has yet to arrive. YELLOW and black?! Part of the orange / black pack? Has to be. Time will give me my answer...

Hello everyone. It's been awhile. No negativity just a quick comment.
I went to the Youngstown show. It's a totally different sounding Priest now. Great musicians just different. Rob is sounding great though. I planned a second show so don't take that wrong.
After multiple listens dare I say I think this may now be my favorite judas Priest album. Thank goodness for Tom Allom and Andy Sneap. This is the first album by Priest that I actually like every song. I really didn't think Priest was capable of a release this good. I bought a signed limited edition(500) Red/black swirl lp that came with a disc and digital download. The second lp is yellow/black swirl. They look really cool. I'd post a pic but I forget how here.
I probably won't bother you fine folks again for awhile. Can't wait for Detroit. Peace!

anyone else traveling that way?
|[Head banger] Sunday, March 18, 2018 9:50:38 PM|| |
| Priest # 1 through 10 throughout the world,low ticket warnings and then sold out shows, I am feeling a lot better about The boys extending their tour dates to other parts of the world!!! But especially western Canada where at least a couple of members are from!!!, loving Spectre, I am gettinga homage to The Ripper and Nightcrawler from that song as well as lots of others from their past albums, hear more every listen, only been about 6 times!! As Acolyte |
|[METALMANJP] Saturday, March 17, 2018 9:13:27 AM|| |
| What a great show, Priest was right on the money, I think this show was better than Epitaph. Kids saw the mighty Priest and really enjoyed them, Halford was energetic and they pulled out Saints in Hell as well as few others I was surprised about. If you get the chance you better go, Saxon was good too they got the crowd fired up for Priest.|
|[Nupe The Ripper] Saturday, March 17, 2018 7:00:32 AM|| |
|Just lyrics and some artwork with five symbols (representing each member of the band, I guess). No photos of the band at all.|

|Hello everybody, wanted to let you know that tomorrow I will be watching the Priest for probably the last time . Taking the entire family to see them in Youngstown, Ohio. My kids are all excited as am I, this is their first concert and I'm sure it will be a good one. |

| Hi everyone, glad to see a number of folks still here!!|
I've listened to this release about 10 -12 times now and I LOVE IT!!
Every time I give it a listen I hear something new, something I didn't catch prior. As far as I'm concerned FIREPOWER is the as good as anything they've put out to this point. If this is their last studio effort, I'm happy!!
I don't care too much about what the bands' rumbling on about, that's on them. From a pure entainment point of view, this is the album I've been waiting for since SFV (PAINKILLER not withstanding).
Not here to blow too much hot air, just wanted to share my thoughts.

| I was finally able to get my hands on the firepower album and it's amazing! I'd dare say it's their best album in the last 20 years or so. It evidenciates a totally new and creative sound going beyond what we got used to. If Redeemer was a great comeback after nostradamus, this one definitely shows that they managed to reach almost perfect. I'm very happy to see my favorite band going up in quality and not being held back by all the negative crap we unloaded after nostradamus came out and after KK announced his quitting the band. I really thank them for showing us that they still got a lot to give, and even when Glenn's sad news hit us a little bit pre-release, this shows how much he loved creating this powerful beast that is priest and that is roooooaaaarrriiinnng heavy metal!!!|
I'm so excited!!!
Take that KK, enjoy your retirement!! I admire and appreciate what he did with priest but I don't think they'd have created this monster with him still on board

New album is fantastic!
What a difference in the audio quality compared to Redeemer.
Not a fan of flamethrower, something odd about that song but otherwise the album is just solid.
Special shoutout to Guardians/Rising from Ruins and No Surrender!

Album is just freakin' AWESOME! I was up until 6am with it in my ears. Downloaded (nice that you got YOURS so fast, btw!) while waiting for packages to arrive.
