It's always good to know that you aren't losing your mind.....yet anyway As I was looking up tour dates, I saw that Priest played Spartan Stadium in '83?? REALLY? If only I was 5 years older!! Can you imagine running into them on campus or at one of the bars after the show??
So you were at just about every Priest show that I went to! That is just amazing. What a small world. That Palace show just blew my freakin' mind! Wasn't Scott's drum solo killer? I've never been that impressed with a drum solo - he just kept beating the crap out of that kit! Even though the Palace was only about half full, we were LOUD!

Ahhhhh! Many thanks. THAT helps. I have a DVD and VHS both with different dates...one 1990 and another 91. I was at the Alice show at the Knob as well as the one at the Palace (where they rocked the freaking house!!).
YES! Finally, confirmation. Megadeth did open for them at the palace (I have the bootleg) while they opened for Alice at the Knob (Alice put on a GREAT show, btw...I went for Priest but was blown away by the theatrics of Alice. Really unexpected.
I knew it! I have a mislabled tape. Once says 1990 and the other 1991. Same show. I KNOW (or would swear to have seen) them open with Hellbent on the first and close with it on another. They closed with it on the Alice tour.
Someone gave me an answer that they played the silverdome?!? Can't prove neither disprove that one. Wings, though, would make sense. Big horrible dome (like the Silverdome...did you see it sold for a few hundred thou? LOL). But that would be an easier mistake to make from a non-Michigander. Thanks!

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! (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.
