Priest will be playing Nostradamus in it's entirety at some shows. Rob Halford has already stated this. They will also be doing some Ripper-era songs.
Well it doesn't have to be ONLY the hits, but a good variety would be better. REAL fans would want to hear stuff like Dreamer Deceiver, Never Satisfied, Blood Red Skies (i dont think this has been played live), Delivering the Goods, Dissident Aggressor, i don't think ANY of those were played last time. I mean, some new stuff wouldn't be bad, but you need variety.

I wouldn't mind if they played the entire new album if the set was extended. If they did what Maiden did and only played 5 other songs, that would be disappointing, but if they did this whole Nostradamus thing and something like-

The Hellion/Electric Eye
Judas Rising
The Sentinel
Victim of Changes
Dissident Aggressor
Jugulator
Rapid Fire
Painkiller
Hell Bent for Leather

Encore- TURBO!
nah not really...

Encore - You got another thing comin


I mean, I could live without Living after Midnight and Breaking the Law. But whats a priest show without the GOOD hits... seriously.. not that those songs are bad, but painkiller just blows them away. If that was the set they played, I would go home happy.

No way!

What about songs like Hell Patrol, Hard as Iron, Blood Red Skies, One Shot at Glory, Cathedral Spires, Thunder Road, Prisoner of Your Eyes? Not to mention their first four or so albums which aside from Victim of Changes and Hell Bent, are almost completely forgotten? Priest have a great selection, as good as Iron Maiden's back catalogue!

However, I have low expectations for the new album. Nostradamus??????? I can see the lyrics already.

Nostradamus rising!
The Metal Monster comes forth!
Nostradamus cursing!
The Future is no more!


Halford hasn't written decent lyrics since the 80s.

Gah. I should have just said "songs from Painkiller and earlier that aren't shit."

No one wants the Ripper abortions, Angel of Retribution, or all of Cheesestradamus.

I'd be more than happy with some Ripper songs. If Halford can sing them.

I'd rather Ripper were still in Priest, myself.

I'd rather Priest retired with Painkiller and kept playing the nostalgia circuit.

I'll withhold judgement until I hear "Nostradamus" but as of right now I agree.

Hey, its not like they don't have enough material to make 7 or 8 different tour sets.
