HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I usually don't note the "departure songs" myself, but this time it was different for the reasons I mentioned. Seemed inappropriate and it was just plain depressing.
Hmmm...I wonder if they'll keep that song for the secong leg of the US tour, IF it happens?
You know, I never noticed! Even had to replay a couple of boots to make sure you were right.
On the money. Oddly enough, I never would have known had you not said something. You are also right. Best for the end of a hockey game or something.

You know, I definitely had a great time seeing Judas Priest live twice last year. Great stage setup, tons of pyro and lasers, the band giving it their all and delivering the goods, so to speak. Spectacular all around.
HOWEVER! I must confess.
I didn't like that they used Queen's "We Are the Champions" as their...departure song, I guess? You know, when they play the song through the venue speakers as soon as the last band leaves the stage, as if to say, "show's over"? Yeah, didn't like this one. I mean, sure, the band is a champ, absolutely no doubt about it, but I'm the one here LOSING my idols to age and retirement! Nope, felt more like a loser. Maybe that was what the band wanted us to feel after the show? That somehow we're all champions, but losers at the same time? *shrugs* Ah, well. I least I have the memories.
I dunno. Just wanted to put that out there. I can't be the only one, right?
