Hello rclappo and welcome to the board! I`m with you. I wish Judas Priest includes Hot Rockin` some time. It`s a great song that brings back so many good memories. They included it in the concert at Tokyo`s Nippon Budokan in 2005: Rising in the East. Lucky Japanese audience!!! I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go hot rockin`...
And you`re right, Nostradamus is impressive and brilliant!
Greetings from Chile
Judas Priest fovever! [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by rclappo from Tuesday, May 19, 2009 5:24:39 PM)
This HUGE Priest fan since 1980 is going to see the band for the "8th" time this August at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA. In all the previous "7" times I've seen them they have NOT done one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE Priest songs AS WELL AS ONE OF THEIR BIGGEST HITS and that song is none other than HOT-ROCKIN'!.
I am begging, pleading with the guys to PLEEEEEEEASSSSSSE include this song in their reportoire at this upcoming performance. 7 times is a good size number for a devoted fan and I realize that bands always have to pick and choose what songs they're going to perform in a particular show but my first Priest concert was back in '82. I really want very badly to see the band perform this song live.
Also, I am just blown away by what they've done with the Nostradamus album. It is one of the most impressive and inventive heavy-metal concept albums to date.
