    Thats what they all say!

    I honestly doubt they will tour again. VERY glad to have caught them at what might perhaps be the last opportunity.

    I completely agree with every word. Adelaide got the "we'll be back soon" line too:erk: but hey, you never know...

    Certainly wouldn't want to see Nostradamus from start to finish, even though I've found it to be a good listen at home.

    Yeah, I'd buy a live DVD of a full performance, but not sure if I'd want to sit through it in person.

    HEAVY METAL TITANS JUDAS PRIEST ANNOUNCE 7 DATE 'PRIEST FEAST' ARENA TOUR IN FEBRUARY 2009:
    Press Release / London, 1st October 2008 – One of the worlds most popular and influential Heavy Metal bands – Judas Priest are set to rock the UK to it's very core when they bring their 'Priest Feast' tour to play 7 arena dates in February 2009 with support from special guests – Thrash Metal veterans Megadeth and Testament.
    Since 1974, Judas Priest has been one of heavy metal's most successful bands, issuing such all-time classic albums as 1980's 'British Steel,' 1982's 'Screaming for Vengeance,' and 1990's 'Painkiller,' and such arena-rocking anthems as “Breaking the Law,” “Living After Midnight,” and “You've Got Another Thing Comin'.” However, Priest's influence goes far beyond their music - they were the first metal band to embrace the 'leather biker look,' a fashion that has since become synonymous with the musical genre. Additionally, Halford's powerful four-and-a-half octave vocal range and the twin guitar harmonies of Downing and Tipton have been 'studied' by countless metal bands in Priest's wake.
    Think 'Double vinyl, gatefold sleeve concept album,' and some of rock's all-time classic recordings come to mind. But in the realm of heavy metal, there has never been a double vinyl (now disc!) concept album that has managed to balance a thought-provoking storyline with metallic thunder. That was, until now. Metal legends JUDAS PRIEST released their sprawling double disc concept album, 'Nostradamus' via Columbia Records on Monday, June 16th in the UK/Europe, and a day later in the US on Epic Records.
    Megadeth - As one of the most commercially successful heavy metal bands of all time, Megadeth have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, including six consecutive platinum albums, with seven consecutive Grammy nominations for Best Metal Performance. Formed by guitarist Dave Mustaine after he was forced out of Metallica, Megadeth long represented the dark and nasty side of American thrash. Between the manic precision of Mustaine's riffage, which unlike most thrash bands locked perfectly with the machine-gun pulse of the kick drum, and the inspired cynicism of his songwriting, Megadeth perfectly captured the mood of metal fans.
    Since forming in 1983 following Mustaine's departure from Metallica, Megadeth has remained a vital element in continuing to define and redefine the sound and the fury of metal music and with each new album, forges new ground and stretches the very boundaries where metal lives.
    Testament - estament was one of the first thrash metal bands to emerge from the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1980's. Undoubtedly, they are the inventors of the thrash-metal wheel. Testament's powerful sound, influence, and longevity make them one of the Top 5 All-Time Legendary Thrash Metal Bands. Earlier this year, they re-formed the original line up to record their 9th studio album - their first in nearly a decade 'Formation of Damnation' which won them 'Best Album' at the Metal Hammer 'Golden Gods' Awards this summer.
    Having the opportunity to see 3 such important and influential bands within the world of Metal on the same bill is cause for excitement. Make sure you don't miss the chance to witness Metal history in the making and ensure you are part of Priest Feast 2009.

    It just goes to show the difference in culture between the UK and Oz when Priest can play Wembley but not even half-fill an arena half the size here.

    As evidenced by the mere existence of the NWOBHM.... It is Wembley Arena though, not Wembley Stadium. According to Wikipedia, it holds 12,500.

    Haha. My bad. That's smaller than Acer, but I bet they could fill that unlike what they did here.

    Yeah, the Arena's a shed really. Mind you it's been refurbed since we were last there; it felt like a concrete and tin shed last time!

    Haha. "A shed". It's the capacity of the Sydney Entertainment Centre, but it's "a shed".

    By 'shed', I mean in the way they refer to arena's in the US as 'sheds' - ie, shitty tin and concrete buildings :) But again, they've done it up since so I hope it looks nicer.
