PRIEST RULES

JP never disappoints and this show was no exception. Rob Halford is amazing. His voice is still the same. The new guitarist we’re good and seeing Glenn Tipton was wonderful. Toward the end Rob went out and was singing by Glenn and then kissed him on the cheek. It was heartwarming and sad at the same time. I love these guys

5.0 star rating Elijah from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

AWESOME SHOW--AMAZING AUDIENCE VIBE

Scott Gorham's (Thin Lizzy) band BSR led off the night with some nice energy and a couple good tunes in addition to Jailbreak. Saxon came on next and basically blew the place away! These guys are real rock & rollers from England and altogether highly professional and entertaining. Some excellent songs off their new album in addition to Denim and Leather rocked the place. Played a very long set and the place was abuzz. Of course JP was the main event and they did not disappoint. The Tipton- sub guitarist was totally awesome. Halford hit high note after high note--ridiculous! Saints in Hell was probably the best song of the night amongst many. Seemed to slow down just a bit during 2nd encore but ended with a bang rendition of living after midnight. Place was singing along entire night. Band seemed genuinely impressed. Riverside is great place for a show. All in all a superb concert experience.

GREAT SHOW

Great sight lines and the sound is very clean in the front half of the arena Saxon rocked hard the young Bass player had tremendous energy. The Priest was outstanding!!! great mix of older hits and fan favorites along with several tracks of the new release

5.0 star rating George Wojtkiewicz from Craig, Colorado

STILL THE BEST

Great show, great energy. Always go to see Ian Hill, by far the best and most underrated bassist in all of heavy metal. Great set list, with old classics and some of their best new hits. Seen JP two other times years ago, and they still have a lot of power. Amazing!!

DENVER

Well worth the wait, if your reading this and you haven't gone to this concert,,go! Qeensrych put on a great show, judas priest presented true raw heavy metal. This show started on time with minimal time in between bands. I've been attending concerts for 45 years and judas priest may have had the best encore set I have seen. Security was working hard to keep the venue safe so I have to give them a shout out. DO NOT MISS THIS CONCERT, it's a life changer for us current metal heads

PRIEST AT MGM HARBOR

The Priest were MONEY tonight. They played a great setlist, high energy and clear vocals/music sound. Halford is METAL, and his vocals were crystal. No better metal band or singer than the PRIEST. I can only hope/wish that they can continue for many more years.

AWESOME

I took my son to his first concert in 2005, of course Judas Priest, now I'm 59 and he took me... I traveled 4 hrs. To Albany as my son lives in Syracuse... Worth every minute, I transformed back to the early 80's when I saw them numerous times at Nassau Coliseum on Long Island where I'm from. Halford is understandably slowing down but still belts it out! Played Hell Patrol and Between the Hammer and the Anvil! Had a great time!

THE PRIEST IS BACK

Not short on Accolades'. Both Queensryche and Judas Priest showed the craft. They Rocked! and so did the audience. The venue is close and personal. Perfect for a music venue with not a bad seat in the house.

4.0 star rating Brian Clark from Novato, California

JUDAS PRIEST STILL ROCKS

The only reason I’m giving 4 stars instead of 5 is the Warfield staff refused to let us go on the floor because it was too crowded even though we had floor tickets. We were told to leave the the bar area after buying two 12oz beers for $24 and had to watch Saxon from the hallway. After Saxon finished, we were able to get on the floor for Priest. They did not disappoint. New and old material was amazing. Halford can still hit every high note throughout the set!

PRIEST AT THE ROSEMONT THEATER

Priest is still one of the most amazing metal bands out there and their most recent album, Firepower, is one of my favorites (Ive been a fan since I was 12 years old and British Steel was their latest). They put a ton of energy into the show and Rob Halford truly is the Metal God for being able to still do what he does after all of these years. However, I am giving a lower rating to this review as the sound mixing was horrendous for this show. I dont know if thats on the theater, the equipment or something else but it sounded like Halford and Andy Sneap were performing from a different building and so were extremely difficult to hear. The song selection was amazing, covering really all of Priest past through present. But I expected much better sound quality in this theater. For reference, we also saw them over the summer at the outdoor Hollywood theater, and they sounded great.

THEY STILL SOUND GOOD BUT THE SONG SELECTION IS TERRIBLE

I've been a priest fan forever and when a band has close to 20 studio albums spanning their career I understand their is an entire library to choose from when making up a setlist but this setlist was utterly disappointing, no Painkiller, Metal Gods, Freewheel Burning, Touch of Evil, One Shot at Glory, The Sentinel, All Guns Blazing. seemed mediocre at best.

JUDAS PRIEST HARTFORD

very disappointed didn't play many of the classic hits - how can you not play you got another thing comin - they are a vintage band - new stuff is just noise

2.0 star rating Rob Rogers from Atlanta, Georgia

THE FELLAS ARE GETTING OLD

The set list was weak. Halford was struggling to hit notes or missing them altogether. Those fans not realizing this and raving how great the show was are delusional. Ive been going to Priest shows since 1982. They are in need of retirement.
