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

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 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

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.
