Judas Priest !!!!!!!!

  • I saw them on the "final" tour a couple years ago after the departure of KK Downing. They didn't miss a beat and are still one of the best live bands out there. They will release a new album in July and a limited tour after that.

    To all of you that have never seen a metal act, I would suggest going to one of their shows...You listening Throw?

  • Priest and Maiden ruled my childhood years! I would love to see them one last time, however KK was/is one of my favorite guitarists and still a little bent over how that all went down. I am sure the new guy is good but its just not the same for me anymore. What little I have heard of the new album is not so good, too bad Nostradamus was quite good.

  • Saw the Defenders of the Faith tour in Spokane and the Turbo Lover tour in Irvine. That's enough for me.

    No KK = no Judas Priest

  • As much as I like KK, the guy they got to replace him (Ritchie Faulkner) is definitely no slouch and honestly, he blew me away, you simply cannot tell the difference. And from what I understand KK was just tired of touring.

    The band still kills it, trust me.

  • Judas have produced some of the most memorable guitar riffs out there.

    "Hot Rockin", "Breakin the Law", Livin after Midnight, (et. al.). Simple, yet brilliant. Thing about their songs is just enough thought was put into the transitions/bridges and the choruses as well the verse riffs. And then there are the solo breaks...

    So many other bands find a great lick, but it falls apart during the verses and breaks, not so with JP.

  • Priest is definitely a must see act for anyone. Halford still kills it on vocals and always puts on a great show. Another good band that still kills it is Twisted Sister, saw them for the first time Memorial weekend at Rocklahoma, blew me away.

  • Used to use Pain Killer and Electric Eye as inspiration before band practices back in the day. Priest will get me amped up for just about anything.

  • That list may have been one of the shows but the acts did vary by the city/months..As many concerts I have seen,I could be wrong..I know I have seen Priest at one of them before they headlined..

  • There are some decent bands on this bill, including the headlining Priest. I would probably go if I were in the KY. area.
