God Damn that sucks!

However, itīs still good to know that they will stop before they become a parody on themselves.

But still. It sucks...

I'm guessing they'll do one final world tour and then release a final album, followed by a European tour to finish it up. I'm glad they're doing this now before Halford's voice goes to hell.

Woah, sad news but I'm glad to see that at least one of the bigger metal acts of the world has the balls to call it quits while they are still in good terms with each other.

Ready to rock the world one last time! Great way to go out! :fist:

I don't know about that. I would imagine that the setlists will be awesome because of this. Keep in mind that the only time I've seen Priest was in the summer of '09 on the British Steel anniversary tour, so there are still a lot of awesome, classic songs I haven't seen them perform.

Anyway, this is a bit of a bummer. I love Priest, but if anytime would be a good time to end it, it would be now, with Rob's voice not being as powerful as it used to. It's still sad to see them go, though. I'll be sure to catch them every time they come through until the end.

Yeah, but that's just you. Most fans will have seen them more than on just that tour and will have seen all the other greatest hits songs before. Europe didn't even get the British Steel tour.

I think the setlist will suck, but it's the last tour, so it kind of doesn't matter so much.

DethMaiden
12-07-2010, 07:59 AM
The setlist will "suck" in the sense that it's going to be a hits setlist, but Priest's hits are generally very good. As long as they cover most of their albums, I'll be happy.

The 2008 setlist was "hits" (only one from the album it was promoting) and it was fucking awesome, so I trust the Priest.

Er, you mean the 2008 setlist with all the non-hits in it and only 5 regulars?

That setlist ruled! I'd be more than happy with a setlist equivalent to that with loads of deep cuts from the older albums.

Damn. I'm kind of bummed out considering that Judas Priest is like one of my all time favorite bands :(

As for the dates. If they are playing Europe during the summer then that probably means they will not trek to the U.S untill september/october :flame:

I will definitely be going to this. I have seen Priest twice in concert and they kick major ass. I expect the same to happen for this tour :fist:

Now that the initial reaction has set in, I'm lucky to have seen them 3 of the 4 times they've been around since the reunion (still regret missing one :lol:), but I guess all good things must end. Wherever/whenever they come to CA I'll be there, hopefully more than once.

A lot of my friends went and saw them here at the Verizon Wireless Ampitheater over here in Irvine back in may of 08'. They told me they came on stage at exactly 7 pm and they ended the set around 10:40ish.........talk about epic. Almost 4 fucking hours.......Not to mention Neils Epic "drum solo" :drool:

I wanted to go see Rush this year in Irvine(they played in August) but tickets where sold out including Lawn which was only 20 bucks :(

FUCK. To be honest, I'm glad Priest are gonna go out on what I consider to be a fairly high note of their career... But I'm also sad that the end is coming. Gonna have to try to catch as many shows as possible from this tour. Priest are my 2nd favorite band and I'll be damned if knowing I won't be seeing them live again will not depress me.

I was so dehydrated and brought no money for water/food or anything.

Actually, no. Mine was a headlining off-date before the Metal Masters tour. It was a radio guy's 15th anniversary of his radio show, and the lineup was: Judas Priest/Jackyl/Drowning Pool/local band. Drowning Pool sucked, Jackyl was okay but played for way too long. Way too many people, not enough water drunk beforehand, hehe.

I just want to see them live once more and then I'm fine. They were pretty awesome last time I saw them, and they'll probably play an even more awesome set of songs on their last tour. I've only seen them do British Steel and about 7 other songs anyway. I need to hear Electric Eye and Painkiller :blaze:

The guys are like 60 now and once you get to that age retirement is always a possibility.

Shit how did I not know about this until now? Sad day but hell after 40 years not surprising all at the same time. I've only seen them once and that was at the '04 Ozzfest. All I really knew at that time was just the popular stuff, I figured I would know a few songs and the rest of it would really not be good. Shit was I wrong, Priest totally rocked it out. They are the most memorable thing I took from the '04 Ozzfest that was already loaded. They will be missed for sure and I hope they are remotely close to where I live, I want to see the Epitaph.

JuuKun
12-08-2010, 04:49 AM
Sad, but not particularly shocked or anything. Would love to catch them again. The only time I've seen them was on the British Steel anniversary tour, so I'd be happy with just about any set they could put together for this. If there's a New England date, I'm there.

New comment from Halford:

"My intention, no matter where I go or what I do, is to keep making metal. We do have a few more things we want to say – but what we’d rather do for the time being is let the information settle. It’s very big news for a lot of fans and we want to let the firestorm settle down. So for all intents and purposes, it’s the farewell tour, and it’ll probably last into 2012."

I wouldn't mind hearing Ram it Down or Blood Red Skies, but I wouldn't want them in place of hits or one of the few deep tracks, if any, they'll do. It would be awesome if they played one of the better Ripper songs, but the best one is 10 minutes long, and anyways there is no chance. I wouldn't mind hearing something from Angel of Retribution, but again not in place of anything major. It would be cool to get a set full of unexpected songs, but if this is really it I want to see their big hits more then anything else.

Which wouldn't make any sense, because that would just be a normal set. If he's making of point of saying "every album" then he means "every album".

No, I can't. And you know why? Because most fans are idiots and don't see a chance like this for what it. They'll happily vote for a set that looks like a label cash-in compilation. The highest voted songs will be Metal Gods, Breaking The Law, You Got Another Thing Comin', Painkiller etc.

A similar thing happened with the most recent Kreator U.S. tour. They had the fans vote for the songs on their forum, and they pretty much voted for the most popular ones. Even the band themselves commented on how surprised they were at that outcome.

However, the fans did surprisingly vote for a couple real obscure songs high enough to have them play it. (The Pestilence and When the Sun Burns Red if anyone cares to know).

Here's my vote, I didn't even include anything from Turbo because... you know. Also didn't include any Ripper material because I really don't think they'll spend 2 of the last songs fans will ever see on it.
These aren't necessarilly my favorites, but what I want to hear based on what they've played since reuniting and what will translate best live for the way that they play now (vocal limitations, etc). Sounds like they're definitely doing Desert Plains, which is cool.

I think Victim should be a staple more than You've Got Another Thing. I wouldn't mind hearing Tyrant but definitely not if it meant no Victim.

So let me get this straight? You're only allowed to vote one song off each album? Meh, I'm a little disappointed if that's the case. I was hoping we could atleast vote for 2-3 songs and HOPEFULLY they would play 2-3 songs off each album....meh :bouville:

Never Satisfied - Rocka Rolla
Victim of Changes - Sad Wings
Starbreaker - Sin After Sin
Exciter - Stained Class
Delivering The Goods - Hell Bent For Leather
Rapid Fire - British Steel
Solar Angels - Point of Entry
Bloodstone - Screaming For Vengeance
Love Bites - Defenders of the Faith

Ram It Down - Ram It Down
A Touch Of Evil - Painkiller

Judas Rising - Angel of Retribution
Prophecy - Nostradamus

These. I doubt Never Satisfied will be played, it's kind of become a staple for the Halford band. Speaking of which, I saw them play that song last June and Rob nailed it (original key and all).

Am I the only one that notices that Halford play all the Priest songs in their original key while Priest themselves tune down? On the Ozzy tour, I saw YouTube footage of Halford playing Diamonds and Rust, the Green Manalishi and Jawbreaker in their original keys, and dude sounded spot on. Why doesn't Priest play in their original keys if Rob can obviously handle it?

P.S. Holy shit, another Priest fan that knows Starbreaker!!:party:

I don't really care, that's the weakest track on Painkiller imo.

also: why not just cut out Breaking the Law? Seeing as how everyone who's heard it already probably doesn't care much about hearing it again (least of all without vocals) and the ones who haven't yet will be most likely disappointed that Halford sits out during the song, why keep it in the set?

Not that Touch of Evil is a bad song but all of these songs are superior.

I agree completely. I even like the bonus track for the remaster Living Bad Dreams better.

All but the last two are about as good, but I'd still love to hear A Touch of Evil over an instrumental version of Breaking the Law.

One Shot at Glory is the best song on the album n00b.
