When it was Tipton and Faulkner, the live reviews were mostly positive. Now that it is Andy Sneap instead of Tipton, I don't really know what to expect; from the few live clips I've watched on youtube, it seems that most of the time he's kind of just standing there. At least Halford is still in good vocal form, and the latest album was really good.

I saw Judas Priest at a large show many years ago. They were VERY good live.

As with many of their counterparts from the time, I am firm in the belief that there comes a time you should recognize your age and fading ability, and call live performance of music in this strain a part of the past. I cannot even begin to imagine that this show, nor several of the others you have mentioned having tickets to will be more than a sad reminder of what was.

Speaking of geezer bands, Kraftwerk is hitting North America for the first time in decades for their 50th anniversary tour! 3D visuals, baby! (It's an amazing show, no kidding.)

For Hondo:
07-01 Austin, TX - ACL Live at the Moody Theater

07-02 Dallas, TX - Bomb Factory.

They have played several times in the US in the last 12 years, including the Coachella festival and in Miami about six or eight years ago.

I saw Priest right after Nightcrawler came out, and Ripper was the lead singer, but the rest of the band was still original JP. It was a club show, with seating for less than 400, so it was pretty amazing.

I was under the impression that Halford didn't have the rights to the name, but maybe they came up with some kind of agreement.

Halford is lead in this 'version', correct? I'm seriously considering picking up a ticket for this show, but haven't decided yet.

Halford is the lead singer. The Fire Power album is great back to form IMHO. Should be a great show.
