Judas Priest sounded great. I'm still amazed how Rob was able to wear all those jackets in that heat. I thought the band for Deep Purple was good but Ian Gillian just doesn't have the voice anymore. Still respect him going out at 73 though.
Not sure why anyone would continue to rank bands today, against how they sounded 35 years ago, but that’s pretty bogus. Priest was awesome, when you consider Rob and Ian’s age, and the fact that Richie has only completed one tour and two albums with the band, they were better than expected!! My only issue with the show was that they only played about 10-12 songs. With Deep Purple being the headliner, Priest really didn’t get very deep into their 40+ year catalog.
Priest was the first band I ever listened to that got me into metal, and I finally got to see the one that started it all for me. My father seen priest back in 80 and 82 (Screaming for Vengance tour) , and finally are coursing him out of the house he went with me! 35 years later and he says Rob hasn’t missed a beat! Purple was awesome too! What a great show! I’ll definitely be seeing them both again if they come through.
Great show. The band is so tight, it’s awesome. Sound was great, singer still has a good voice. The croud was really into it. Great team to make it quicker to build the stage between acts. Really appreciated that.
Ein großartiges Konzert. Priest war in Hochform. Von Anfang an sprang der Funke auf das gut gelaunte und laute Publikum über. Einige Überraschungen in der setlist wie z.B. bloodstone, When the Night comes down und grinder und minutenlanger Applaus nach Living After Midnight. Trotz der Hitze im Zelt wollte niemand gehen. Genial
