God Damn that sucks!

However, it´s still good to know that they will stop before they become a parody on themselves.

But still. It sucks...

I'm guessing they'll do one final world tour and then release a final album, followed by a European tour to finish it up. I'm glad they're doing this now before Halford's voice goes to hell.

Wow, I'm pretty surprised by this. I'll have to try to see them when they hit the States. Thanks for the forty years of metal, Priest!

Damn....

Hopefully they do a really extensive tour of the US so I can see them more than once.

Woah, sad news but I'm glad to see that at least one of the bigger metal acts of the world has the balls to call it quits while they are still in good terms with each other.

Ready to rock the world one last time! Great way to go out!

I will see them at least twice on this tour. Should be a blast. Although something tells me the setlist will be a bit boring.
