Living After Midnight

Great show! Weren't that many people there, but for the people that did make it they were all glad to be there and very supportive. The set hasn't changed at all, but not that bad of a set. The ticket said 6 PM was the start of the show and sure enough it was! The doors opened at 5 so make sure you get there early unless the other venues are doing things differently. Thin Lizzy got a 45 minute set and put on a solid show. Black Label Society came on about 20 minutes after Thin Lizzy was done and played for an hour. Once Black Label was done it only took about 35 minutes and the mighty Priest took the stage and played for about 2 hours.

The show was over with at 11 and everything was all back-to-back so it all went smoothly. No complaints at all. First time seeing any of these bands, and would gladly see them again!

Great show! Weren't that many people there, QUOTE]

It was the same when I saw them in Rochester a few weeks ago. They played a venue that fits 6,500 and there may have only been about 4,000 people there. Supposedly the show in Rochester was the smallest venue they've played at this tour. Since it was an indoor place that's general admission it probably was the smallest.

Still a kick ass show regardless of the turnout or venue size:rocker:

I was there and the crowd was small but better than I thought it would be considering it was a Sunday night and the South has never been a great draw for Priest. Priest was mighty and the new guitarist is insane. On an opposite note, Zakk Wylde is the most over-rated guitarist of the past 20 years. His guitar solo was aurally painful, sloppy, and one dimensional (wow how can you play 20 minor pentatonic runs in a row). BLS BLOWS. PRIEST RULES

I was surprised to see how many people were there for BLS though! Seemed like most of the crowd wore a BLS shirt, and I've never seen so many vests before! I know those BLS vests don't come that cheap either. It makes me wonder if they weren't there then how small the crowd would be? Then again, Judas Priest could've picked Charlotte which has a lot more people :tongue:

Yeah i was thinking the same thing about the crowds being small. I seen this tour in St. Louis and there were alot of empty seats. I would think it would draw more beings it's their "farewell" tour.....

BLS had alot of fans as mentioned too. I was a fan of them right up until The Blessed Hellride, after that nothing has impressed me. Zakk hardly plays anything from their first 2 albums live anymore. I could have done That 10 min guitar solo he does. I do find him overrated
