Judas Priest -- Columbia, MD -- August 22nd, 2009

Awesome show, I was on the rail right in the center. The way they kicked the show off with Rapid Fire and the curtain was awesome. The only other time I've seen the Priest was last year and Halford was sounding pretty rough then, this time was a completely different story. Halford nailed every scream, a highlight for me was when Halford came up front and center, hunched over and destroyed Victim of Changes. I could see him start to shake near the end of the scream. Glenn was the coolest guy of the night though. Rob and KK seemed to be in their own world but Glenn was interacting with the fans all night. Right after Rapid Fire he flashed me the horns! During The Ripper me and him had some fun interaction with the lyrics, and then he handed me a pick after the set. Very, very awesome guy. Ian's bass intro to The Rage was cool to hear. Rob said some cool stuff at the end of the set about the Union Jack and the Stars and Stripes being united in peace, war, and heavy metal. I couldn't believe how fast the set went by, British Steel was over in the blink of an eye.

Setlist was:

Rapid Fire
Metal Gods
Breaking the Law
You Don't Have to be Old to be Wise
Living After Midnight
The Rage
The Ripper
Hell Patrol
Victim of Changes
Freewheel Burning
Diamonds and Rust
You've Got Another Thing Coming
6/17 - Meshuggah
6/28 - Iron Maiden - Bergen, Norway
6/29 - Blaze Bayley - Bergen, Norway
7/1 - Iron Maiden - Luxembourg
10/31 - Fleetwood Mac
