Bad copy of Detroit? It was pro-shot. My VHS even looks better than the dvd. I bet you just got a bad encoding. Seeing little horizontal lines, perhaps? I'll see what I can do to dupe a new copy from the VHS when I get a free minute (?...don't hold your breath).
Riddle me this, though. Am I completely confused or did Priest do two consecutive years of tours in Michigan. I could have sworn that this was the second. Played with Megadeth (I also have that bootleg). While the VHS and DVD have different years on them, it is the same show. 1990 Palace. I could SWEAR that they opened this one with Hell bent but closed with Hell bent on the other tour.
HELL YEAH HELLRIDER!! Let's talk about THE MIGHTY PAINKILLER!! That album kicks you in the face right from the beginning and never lets up! Not one bad or mellow song on the entire thing. I saw them in December 1990 at the Palace in Auburn Hills/Detroit. UNBELIEVABLE. Scott's drum solo had the floor and chairs shaking and my teeth were rattling in my head! It was THE BEST drum solo I have ever seen - usually I get bored during them I admit, but Scott's was incredible. And Rob's voice..... OMG..... dead on every single note on every single song. His voice just pierced right through me. We have the bootleg to that show and even though the video quality isn't very good, you can still hear how incredible Rob's vocals were. I have to say they were at the top of their game then. I am really hoping for a return to something like that.
