Oh, the tragedy: Judas Priest will do a farewell tour

#1 Post by Orodaran » 07 Dec 2010 12:26

First Dio is gone, and now Judas Priest quits. We've only left with Iron Maiden now...

Sad news! But I will definitely be there. Hopefully they have a huge, killer set list.

Too bad. Great though that they'll do their farewell at WOA. Let's make it one to remember.

Judas Priest doing a farewell tour and most possibly retiring?

About time I say. The mighty Halford is slowly becoming a shadow of his former self and the last JP album was quite crap.

I hope they'll just stop touring and release at least a new album. Finishing a career with an album like Nostradamus is a shitty and sad way to go. But then, the 3 previous ones weren't really gems either.

Oh well, I'll just go on continuing to pretend JP died in a plane crash after the Painkiller tour.

I love Nostradamus but yeah, those lazy bitches, they could have done a final album before the final tour.

Well, always better than Running Wild - no news for 4 years and then "uh well, we're splitting up".

I'm with you for Nostradamus but a last album would have been more than well accepted. On the other hand, well, better no album that a bad one.

@Orodaran: did they split-up? Didn't know...

I was hoping for a new album next year. I hope Iron Maiden don't make the Final Frontier their final one as well. But then again you never know Kiss had a farewell tour in 1999 but are still going strong today.
How long do you think Blind Guardian will go on for?

Well, Priest announced their final *tour* - they didn't say they were retiring for good, maybe they will make another studio album, they just won't tour anymore.

Iron Maiden made pretty clear that they feel to go on still and that The Final Frontier is not, well, their final frontier.

Blind Guardian, dunno, I guess at the very least we'll see 3 more album / tour cycles, I assume they'll stop between their 50's and 60's but really, they're not THAT old so no need to worry about it just yet...

And about the Kiss farewell tour and in general about the "final" tour of bands... well, I didn't want Judas Priest to end, but now that they said they did, I hope they will. I would have loved to see them many more times in years to come, you say this is the last tour? fine, make it the last tour and then let it be it. I wouldn't want them to come back in few years time saying "we changed our minds"..... not that I wouldn't go to their concert in that case :wink:

Well I hope they play some of their less known tracks like:

Run of the Mill, Island of Domination, Dreamer Deceiver/Deceiver, Starbreaker, LUP/CFTP, White Heat Red Hot, Stained Class, Saints in Hell, Invader, Savage, Bloodstone, Sentinel, Night Cones Down, Blood Red Skies, All Guns Blazing...

The Stained Class album is criminally underrated, especially considering Exciter and BTROD are the 2 only tracks that have survived past the 70's and I think Saints in Hell and Invader have never been played live

The previous tour was all about the lesser played songs; I assume this, as exciting as it may be, will be just a "greatest hits" tour.... you can't have your farewell omitting too many songs between You've got another thing coming, Living after midnight, Breaking the law, The ripper and Victim of Changes....

AKA: We're taking a long break before reuniting to make more tour money from the comeback tour?

I hate to sound the way I do but most of these breakups tend to involve prospects of wanting to come back to bring in more potential for crowds at a later date. Look at Rush, KISS, and many other bands. As long as the members are still alive there is always a chance for there to be a reunion tour.

You're quite generous. I'd say up until Seventh Son with occasional flashes of brilliance scattered throughout the following albums.

Anyway, turns out that Judas Priest are writing new material.

So there will be a new album, and maybe some more concerts, it's just that the "Epitaph" one will be the final major world tour.

Basically as Maiden's tour for Dance of Death was the last big one, before they decided to buy an airplane.

The real Iron Maiden is not fucking gone. If people don't like what they're doing since 198X, fine, move on. But they were fucking surging in popularity in America last summer with the new album and tour, and they are every bit as Iron Maiden as they've ever been. No one does it better. I'm thankful to still have them in my life and to be able to pass the torch to my son.

And great news that the Judas Priests are writing new songs, etc. Yup.

Interview with the band: http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbe ... mID=158005

Not much news, only the fact that they admit that this isn't really their farewell tour after all. As if we didn't know. :)
