Judas Priest -- Chicago, IL -- June 3rd, 2005

Me and Larry Horse went to the show last night and saw them FRONT ROW CENTER!!! The merch was pretty good we each got the new tour program and tour shirts with the AOR cover on the front and a list of countries on the back. The band where tight and into it. Glenn had some trouble with the Painkiller solo but all around he was really good. I made eye contact with every member besides Glenn and I was even hit by Robís sweat (Geoffís to). There was this fat woman trying to get past the barrier with her arms open trying to get to Rob (it was really entertaining.) Iím sure at one point or another es156 was able to see us on the jumbotron. There where about 3 separate 30 second periods where me and Scott where looking each other in the eye and he seamed to be a little annoyed by it but as a drummer the member I tend to watch the most is the drummer. He at one point dropped a stick while tossing it in the air but other than that Scott was on top of his game that night. Over all last night was easily the best Priest show Iíve ever been to, Iíd give the show 10 out of 10. Queensryche werenít too bad either.

1) The Hellion/Electric Eye
2) Metal Gods
3) Riding On The Wind
4) A Touch Of Evil
5) Judas Rising
6) Revolution
7) Breaking The Law
8) I'm A Rocker
9) Diamonds And Rust
10) Deal With The Devil
11) Beyond The Realms Of Death
12) Turbo Lover
13) Hellrider
14) Victim Of Changes
15) Exciter
16) Painkiller
Encores:
17) Hell Bent For Leather
18) Living After Midnight
19 You've Got Another Thing Comin'

Good review Wrathchild. Yes I did catch a glimpse of you guys on the screens. I could see you guys every now and then down there in the front row. I thought that Scott Rockenfield threw a stick in your direction but I couldn't tell if either of you caught it.

I thought it was an excellent show. Queensryche were very tight and sounded great. The crowd reaction was very good also, with everyone in the lower level standing and a lot of people singing. Their set list was the same as what has been posted before. I thought it was great to hear so many old tunes. Five songs from Rage For Order is just outstanding! Highlights for me were Surgical Strike, the EP medley, and En Force.

I thought that Judas Priest got off to a bit of a slow start. Electric Eye was good but not great. Metal Gods and Riding On The Wind were just average in my opinion. I can think of many other songs that I would rather hear. However, I think that EvilCheeseWedge did not stay long enough to let the boys get warmed up. Rob's mobility is not much of an issue in my book. When Halford opened for Maiden on the Brave New World Tour Rob just stood there and sang so I wasn't expecting much movement. As long as he can still sing I am happy. I thought that Judas, Revolution and Breaking The Law sounded pretty good. But the set really picked up after Diamonds And Rust. Deal With The Devil was excellent and the rest of the show just killed. (Victim Of Changes would be the only exception, but I am just not a big fan of that song.) The guitar solos in Beyond The Realms Of Death are amazing. Hellrider and Exciter simply blew me away. The encore is pretty predictable and the show is not much different from OzzFest last year, but it was still a great show and well worth my money. Highlights for me were Deal With The Devil, Turbo Lover, Hellrider, and Exciter.

Well, we hung out in the venue for a bit before heading out. We heard "Breaking The Law", "I'm A Rocker", "Diamonds And Rust", and "Deal With The Devil" from the parking lot, and they sounded pretty shaky.

(Also, we were in our seats for the first half hour of the Priest set, I honestly think that's plenty of time for them to warm up, especially after walking in on Queensryche's third song and seeing them in full force already )

If I had never heard "Beyond The Realms of Death" before, I would've probably stayed. But I just heard it less then 11 months ago anyways, so there wasn't much incentive.

Edit: Added "Breaking the Law", which they were starting as we headed to the car.

OK, I think I used the wrong phrase, so allow me to clarify a little bit. A professional band should not need any real warmup time frame, so to speak. Queensryche hit the stage on fire and did not let up for their entire set. Their energy level was high and the songs just ripped. Maiden always hit the stage with a lot of energy. I guess with Priest I was really thinking more in terms of the set list. I don't really expect a lot of running around the stage from these guys. I think the first half of the set list is very questionable. Not that the songs are bad, just that I can think of many songs that I would rather hear. But I really liked the second half of the set. I think the songs were well executed and maybe a little tighter. By the way, the crowd energy was pretty high during the entire show in Chicago even though the band was rather stationary. Just random thoughts.....

I caught the stick he broke and while I was holding my shirt and program another stick he threw got me right in the neck and Jon tried to get it with no success. But I think a broken stick is a better souvenir.

Ah, that is too cool. I thought that I saw at least one headed your way. I got the pictures from Jon last night and they are excellent. I told him to post a few on the board here. What a great show.
