Judas Priest -- Toronto, Ontario -- November 22nd, 2011

What a show!!! 3 great bands with 3 fantastic performances!!!!!!

First up, Thin Lizzy!!!! Legendry Irish Hard Rock band.. but unfortunately I got there during their last song which was Boy's Are Back In Town, which is really the only song I know by them anyway.. but they were interesting to watch regardless.

Next up, Zakk Wylde & Black Label Society!!!!!!! Man oh man how I love this band. They played a killer fucking set and Zakk just puts every guitarist to shame when he shredds on his guitar.

Crazy Horse
Funeral Bell
Bleed For Me
Suicide Messiah
Overlord
Parade Of The Dead
Fire It Up
Guitar Solo
Godspeed Hell Bound
Concrete Jungle
Stillborn

Finally, JUDAS PRIEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First time ever seeing them and sadly my last since this is their "fair well tour" But holy shit they delivered!!!!! It was like watching them 25-30 years ago all over again!!!!!!! Mr. Rob Halford has still got it and I just got chills everytime he hit those high notes!!!

Battle Hymn (Intro)
Rapid Fire
Metal Gods
Heading Out To The Highway
Judas Rising
Starbreaker
Victim Of Changes
Never Satisfied
Diamonds & Rust
Dawn Of Creation
Prophecy
Night Crawler
Turbo Lover
Beyond tThe Realms Of Death
The Sentinel
Blood Red Skies
The Green Manalishi
Breaking The Law (Halford didn't sing a single word.. pure audience)
Painkiller
------
The Hellion
Electric Eye
Hell Bent For Leather
You've Got Another Thing Comin'
------
Living After Midnight

What a show indeed! Saw them last week in Rochester and it was epic. Priest and Halford at 60 years old, and doing it better than anyone. By the way, it's nice to see someone appreciate Zakk and BLS instead of someone ragging on them.

Thin Lizzy was awesome. I know they're more of a tribute band now but they've got the killer tracks and the killer riffs and are perfect as an opening band.

Black Label Society was half good, half bad. Overlord, Stillborn, Bleed For Me, Parade of the Dead and Godspeed Hellbound, I liked but the rest is meh and the ten minute guitar solo...Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

And finally Judas Priest. My favorites songs played were Blood Red Skies and Prophecy. Breaking The Law would have been up there if it had been sung. Side note: The stage set up was cool with the banners and screens and chains over the amps, and the laser lights were amazing.

EDIT: Also, I'm note sure about this but I don't think Epitaph is a farewell tour. It's just their last world tour.

We've all known that for some time, you know.

How can you not like BLS???? They're goddamn amazing. But, my only flaw with them is that I feel Zakk tries a little to hard to sound like Ozzy when he sings.. aside from that, incredible

I saw the tour in Quebec City yesterday and BLS were far from amazing...I liked a few songs, but Zakk's vocals were quite weak and that goddamn 10-minute shitty solo just got on everyone's nerves around me...We all know Zakk is a great player, so if you want to show your talents in a solo, do it shorter and work on it a bit, instead of just hitting the same notes endlessly...

TL were excellent but played for mostly an empty room and Priest were excellent with a "reborn" Rob Halford, which was much more energized than on the 2005 and 2008 tours I attended. Didn't rely a lot on his teleprompter, walk the stage all show long and spoke to the crowd a lot.
