Hey Guido! Priest played MI 3 times on the Painkiller tour: Dec 5,1990 at the Palace, Jan. 17, 1991 at Wings Stadium, and August 3, 1991 at Pine Knob (back when it was still called THE KNOB!). The only show I saw on that tour was the Palace show. We were in college and barely scraped the cash together for that show, not to mention it was during finals too. But WHAT A SHOW!!! Yup, the All Guns Blazing DVD is from the Palace show 12/5/90 and it has lines running through it. But it is great to have a video of the show you were actually at especially since we were in the nosebleed seats. By the way, as I mentioned to you, you can totally tell that there was tension between them during the show. Watch it and you'll notice that every time Rob walks toward Glenn they immediately both go in opposite directions. Rob only interacts with KK once and never goes over to Ian at all. I remember leaving that show thinking something was wrong. But did they put on a show, holy crap!! I think the August 1991 date was the tour with Alice Cooper. Megadeath opened for us at the Palace in 1990. So NO, you have not lost it at all, FAR from it! [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by guidogodoy from Wednesday, December 23, 2009 9:21:32 PM)
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.
Tell me honestly, have I really lost it?

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.
