July 12 Judas Priest Jones Beach 1Just got back from a great Judas Priest and Whitesnake show at Jones Beach in Wantagh, New York. Below is a video of Priest performing “Breaking The Law.” Check out how cool Rob Halford is when a fan jumps on stage for the chorus at 1:48.

July 12 Judas Priest Jones Beach 2Of course the show was far from sold out, as always with hard rock and heavy metal shows at Jones Beach. This venue is still very poorly managed in terms of promotion and ticket prices which is why most artists are set up for failure here. I have seen multiple Motley Crue, Poison, and Kiss’ shows that had disappointing turn outs. Judas Priest kicked major ass this evening, performing British Steel in its entirety. Maybe, just maybe, the beach can actually get its act together and promote hard rock and heavy metal legends properly.

GOR Recommendation: Halford LIVE At Rock In Rio III

Unfortunately, I could not make this show last night but I did get to watch the video above of “Don’t Stop Believing” and “Separate Ways.” It sounds like they put on a great show and had a really cool crowd.

I was unable to attend this show, but it doesn’t mean that I should ignore it. The people I talked to about this show said Priest was sick and you know what? I believe it.
