Very good point.

What the hell? This Priest "farewell" tour gets shadier by the day. This just sucks.

Also, why not get Iommi or one of the guys mentioned above to fill-in? Why this asshole nobody cares about?

I'm assuming that the setlist will feature songs from all Priest albums, not necessarily every single song, and hopefully there will be some nice gems from the "previously unheard live" batch.

and the link worked for me...

It's a great idea on paper, but Iommi and Downing have two separate playing styles and that might prove to be a hinderance, especially in the lead department.

I think if anyone they should have gotten Kai Hansen, he could definitely handle it and he'd make a great back up vocalist as well.

The British Steel tribute act around here can play the same stuff. I have no personal animus toward this new guitar player, I'm sure he's capable to do whatever is asked of him, but capable isn't what people are going to ask for, especially and precisely because it is the farewell tour.

That's why I won't pay more than $20 for it.

OR

Is this "farewell tour" a marketing ploy to draw more people to the shows? There is a new album coming out, maybe they will have a "change of heart" and continue on. Ozzy has been on a farewell tour since No More Tears.

What kind of goodbye will it be to someone no one has ever seen before? Quit now, abandon the farewell tour idea, and say goodbye respectfully.

We would laugh just as hard if Dave Murray or Rudolf Schenker or Kirk Hammett left their bands right before a goodbye tour.

Judas Priest played this all wrong, cementing a permanent replacement for this thing. At the very least, they should have tapped into the amazing resource of having an already eastablished superstar acting as a "guest guitarist" for a couple weeks at a time e.g. Yngwie, Satriani, Marty Friedman, in other words, all the guys who list JP as a major influence on their lives.

I agree...

At least with him it really has seemed believable almost every time. I think it would take some serious science to explain how that guy is still alive.
