Who Is Seeing Judas Priest on the Epitaph Tour?

Posted on Monday, June 13, 2011 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments16 Comments

Judas Priest just kicked off the Epitaph tour in Europe. They will make it to South America and eventually the U.S. in the fall.

Like any good fan, I went poking around YouTube for clips to check out the set and stage setup. The band looks and sounds pretty good. I found some really high quality clips shot Saturday night at the Sauna Open Air Festival in Tampere, Finland. Check it out and let me know if you plan on catching the band on this "farewell" tour.

Sorry, but without K.K. Downing, it's just not Judas Priest.

I will. I saw them w/o Rob. I can see them without KK.

There playing here in Detroit in November with Black Label Society & Thin Lizzy, we already have tickets.

I am. Saw them in /09 when they played British Steele cover to cover. They were awesome. I will miss KK too but think it will still be great. If Rob was gone, I wouldn't bother to go.

although they are coming to San Diego, I don't think I'm going to go. I'm sure the ticket prices will be ridiculous. Plus, I saw them back in 1979 so I'm good.

I wasn't going to, without KK, but based on this setlist, I will see it if I get a chance to do so without spending a bomb.

Maybe if tickets weren't so high but if I'm going to pay a lot I want K.K. there so no. I'm saving for the upcoming Van Halen tour anyway.

I saw them last tour on the British Steel tour. I am fine if that was the last time i see them. There is something that does not seem right about seeing Priest on a tour called Epitaph and KK not being there.

I'm with Ace. Also I've seen the last two tours, so my glass of Priest is filled to the brim.

I just saw an ad for this show. The band known as Thin Lizzy is opening. Double pass.

Dudes! That new dude knows how to ROCK! Yeah, he ain't K.K., but he cranks!

Saw them back in 78. They were incredible (they opened for Angel,anybody remember them? lol) Yeah, I'd like to catch them this time around, cause it very well may be their last....

Gary! Angel and Priest in '78! Whoa! Mega!

p.s. Hey, Gary! You aren't from Maryland by any chance, are you?

Without K.K. what's the point? I love the Priest but they need to say goodbye.

Nov 02/2011 Calgary got my tickets...it's been 30 years since I last seen em. Can't wait!

I'll take Priest with no K.K. better than no Priest at all that's for sure and let's face it with all the connections Priest has in the business you know the new guy is gonna be great.
