    Perth is sold out, I think, but at a smaller venue. They didn't even sell out the lower seated section in Melbourne, which isn't great.

    I stopped caring as soon as I listened to the album. :(
    I'm going to see Wicked that night instead. Equally pompous. Less cheese.

    It's Judas Priest, and you are complaining about cheese...

    Dunno about Nationally but Almost Human are on board for the Adelaide show and they're alright. They might throw in a Saxon cover :headbang:

    Exciting update on the tour!

    I just had a dream that yes, Priest were still going to be coming to Australia, but that it's no longer a headlining tour. They will instead be supporting Poison on their just-announced Australian tour. The Brisbane show will be on November 1 at the Riverstage.

    No other details - my brain went on to other crazy stuff after that.

    I'm not sure if the MS support was confirmed yet. I know Electric Mary have official dates up for the tour, but no mention of MS yet. Wouldn't surprise me, however - they're on Riot, and Riot/Alliance Touring is pretty well connected with these kind of events.

    Yeah, I'd heard about Electric Mary as well.

    Wasn't there a local band already announced as the second support when the tickets went on sale? Or am I thinking of the Def Leppard tour?

    I thought Daysend were the opener for the Priest tour?
    or did I get that mixed up with another tour that they are on?

    Daysend got dropped. Now there are different supports in each city. Black Steel in Perth, Mortal Sin in Sydney and Almost Human in Adelaide, and Electric Mary is doing the whole tour AFAIK.

    same about Daysend.

    never heard of Electric Mary.
    any good?

    and wouldn't mind seeing Black Steel get other supports but having Mortal Sin in the Sydney show would be awesome.
    though possibly too trashy for many going to see Priest.

    oh, well.

    great for all the local supports at any rate. :headbang:

    EM sound kinda Chris Cornell cross 80s rock, so I like it, but yeah might make for a strange bill, especially if CC weren't dropped.

    thanks for the link, LT.

    will give them a listen.

    but, as with such shows, I'm guessing more people will be in the bar or buying merch for the support than watch them.
    More's the pity really.

    I was thinking earlier, it would be much harder to gauge what size venues bands should book these days, as they can't make decisions based on album sales anymore. :(

    Well, I've managed to score myself and a friend 2 tickets for $50 each... now, let's see if they move the show from Acer to somewhere smaller in the next week and a half, shall we?
