Judas Priest's tour

This was my 7th time seeing Judas Priest and the 50th Anniversary Tour was the best performance I have seen them perform ever. I have been watching a lot of live videos from this tour and there always seemed to be something off. Especially at times in the vocals. Not this past Tuesday night. I gave Rob grace for the first song as that is always a vocalists hardest part of the performance. Yet, Rob wasn’t too bad. A note or two weren’t stellar but again first song. The second song of the set blew me away. Riding on the Wind. A song I had not heard in a live setting since watching the US Festival on MTV which has always been my favorite heavy song of theirs because of the vocal performance which sounded like guitar pinch harmonics at the end of lines. We’re they there? No, but something better, note perfect belted shrieks and from there Halford never stood his ground nor gave ground but advanced and took ground and showed why he is the Metal God. On stage Right was guitar god Richie Faulkner. A guitarist ten years my junior who plays like the guitarists who influenced me as a player. Sheer pleasure to watch him play. He is the real deal guitar hero. A total package and perfect example of what would happen if you took all the heavy metal guitar gods salient points and combine those together and the result is better in all area than the ingredients which created it. To even top this is that he is an extremely humble man who absolutely adores his fans because he literally is a fan of the band he plays in himself. Maybe that is why you don’t constantly see him in magazines. He isn’t a Rock Star due to his personality. But the fact that he does open forum discussion sessions with Judas Priest fans on instagram on a regular basis is what makes him the penultimate rock star. One who likes to be accessible. On stage left was Andy Sneap filling the gigantic shoes of a Mr. Glenn Tipton. Who by the way, was hand picked by Glenn himself to stand in his stead. Andy is a legend in his own right as recording engineer and producer of some metals best loved albums. Sneap is no slouch on guitar either. Tonight, he started off seeming like he was trying to ask acceptance from the fans on stage, but quickly turned into just going with it and having fun playing for Priest, interacting with the audience, as well as sharing the stage with legends. Standing behind Sneap was Priest’s engine block(to use a automobile reference) Ian Hill. A musician who is “The” heavy metal bassist. He perfectly has done his job every time I have seen Judas Priest live. He is the foundation that anchors the drums to the guitars while providing the groove that the rest of the band must follow. He is just now the greyer and wiser looking man who is always in the same stage position just jamming out and holding it all together. Leaving center stage rear for the drum kit who upon it is Judas Priest’s artillery section Scott Travis. To describe this man is easiest done by saying that he is the combination of all previous drummers of the band, advance that combination a few generations while simultaneously drawing from modern styles of metal and their A list drummers and becoming the quintessential amalgamation of them all. The guy is a bad ass. Period. Who else could be a bette drummer for Priest at this stage? No one! Nothing more need to be did. The set list was a perfect representation of a Judas Priest beat down. They didn’t come to San Antonio (one of the towns who initially broke Judas Priest in the US) to reminisce of old times with old friends. Judas Priest came to give us a reminder of just who they are with a base of their fans who have forgotten who we all were. The band came to kick our ass and yeah they did. Not one song was announced (Green Manalishi) and there were only quick pauses and moments of silence between songs for the band to catch their breath before the next round of this beat down began. I wished they would have played another hour or two, but that would have become redundant. It was a perfect show as it was. It was a reminder of who San Antonio was and that we had just had our ass kicked by JUDAS FUCKING PRIEST!

Judas Priest always a great show. It is amazing that Rob Halford, at 71, can still hit those high notes. You can tell that he still enjoys the thrill of the crowd and encourage the praise and appreciation. Fine solos from Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner (replaced KK Downing in 2011). Shout out to Ian Hill sole continuous member, keeping that rhythm and groove with drummer Scott Travis. (the Family Arena is not acoustically friendly but a great show nevertheless)

Negative 5 stars worse concert experience I've ever had and I been to over hundred. I paid over $150.00 to see my favorite band I consider myself a Judas Priest super fan 9th time seeing them probably last. You ruined what should have been a beautiful night. You all are clueless when it comes to heavy metal fans. I was treated like a piece of shit. I wouldn't go back there if it was free. So metal heads if you wanna just stay in your seat and just stare at the band don't jump up down get crazy like we do wait see them somewhere else.

About Judas Priest

Judas Priest are one of the pioneers of the heavy metal genre and were forerunners of the 'New Wave of British Heavy Metal' movement, laying the groundwork for the speed and thrash metal of the 80s and 90s back in the late 70s.

The band was formed in 1967 by guitarist Kenneth "K. K." Downing, bassist Ian Hill and original singer Alan Atkins. A second guitarist, Glenn Tipton, was also added to the lineup as compensation for their record company's (Gull Records) suggestion to add a horn section to the first album. This "twin axe attack" was not particularly popular at the time, but worked wonders for the group later on and would inspire other bands to do the same. Soon Atkins would be replaced permanently with Rob Halford and the band would go on to record 14 albums from 1974 through 1990. Rob Halford decided to leave the group in 1993, going in a new direction with his new, short-lived metal band, Fight.

With Halford gone and pursuing various solo projects (Fight, Two, Halford), the future looked bleak for the band, but after numerous searches for a suitable replacement, they found something special in tribute band front man Tim "Ripper" Owens. This story forms the basic plot of the movie "Rock Star," which was originally to be completely about Judas Priest and the Ripper, titled "Metal God," but the script was altered after the failure to reach an agreement with the band. Priest would make a total of 4 albums with Owens (2 studio, 2 live records) which were greeted with mixed reactions from fans.

In 2003 the classic 1990 lineup was restored when Rob Halford returned to the group after rekindling the relationship during work on Judas Priest's 4-CD career retrospective "Metalogy". In 2004 the band dominated Ozzfest and released a CD of new studio material and even a live DVD in 2005, enjoying an extremely successful world tour that year. After an emotional reunion, extensive tour and new studio album, the band already has plans for a new record, in the first months of 2008.It will be Judas Priest's first conceptual album based upon the life and predictions of Nostradamus.
