No, I was saying maybe that explains why there were (only) 3000 people at the show in Cleveland.
Let me stress that my bad review was more from not getting what I was used to from the Priest than from
a terrible performance. They weren't that bad they've just sounded so much better in the past. Just two
years ago on British Steel they sounded so powerful and so tight and they impressed me with the fact that they
could still get it done. This last tour didn't do that for me. Was it Rob? Richie?, I don't know. I did say that it
would probably be my last time regardless of future touring or not but I hope they hit Pittsburgh on a new leg
of this tour just to see if I feel the same way or not. I have changed my mind from time to time. I do stick by my
least favorite show comments and I still think they should retire but I'm also anxious to hear their new CD.
Maybe it will rock. I only mention the retirement thing because I would like to see them go out with a little dignity.
If they haven't already, I'm afraid they will soon become a joke of themselves. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by J.D. DIAMOND from Sunday, January 15, 2012 12:04:03 PM)

You think that there are 25,000 cult followers in Cleveland? You think this band are as popular as Iron Maiden in 2012? Obviously NO. Priest are lucky to have even 3,000 in Cleveland. Jimmy does speak a lot of truths but he is not always right.
If the band suck this bad he shouldn't even be here. I've even said when Rob sings Painkiller it sounds like an animal being tortured but I think its funny and am not bothered by it,it seems other people fucking HATE the band so bad over it and all because of a stupid live perfomance. Get over it people!
Maybe Priest should set up a refund for fans that were disappointed as you were from your first post responding to the Cleveland show Budred,that way you could get back your hard earned money since you didn't think it was worth it and since its the last time you will ever see Priest live again regardless if they came again or not.
If my stomach wasn't all fucked up in October I would of went to the show and enjoyed every bit of it because of the "spirit" of Judas Priest as a "cult follower". My rants are because they are not putting out enough studio albums,I don't want them to quit,I want them to keep going and I don't care if thier performance struggles,its not like they totally "suck" live,just a few flaws so what.
I'm glad you enjoyed 70 % of these metal bands you saw live over the years your right its a matter of opinion,you think 70% of these metal bands are worthy,I do not. But that doesn't make me right and you wrong.

Live show for cult followers, that may explain why only 3000 out of 25,000 showed up in Cleveland.
I wasn't expecting Rob to sound like he did in 1980 (and he didn't disappoint) and I do judge bands on
their live performances. To me when they suck live they usually suck. As for no one worth seeing
that's just a matter of opinion. There may not be many classic British metal bands but there are plenty
of metal bands out there worth checking out. I've been lucky enough to see over 100 bands the last two
years and I've enjoyed at least 70 percent of them. Anyway, to each his own, and lastly, Jimmy may be a
smartass but he speaks alot of truths. Most just don't want to face them. Peace all! Edited at: Sunday, January 15, 2012 7:27:57 AM
