Judas Priest - Cardiff International Arena - 20/02/09

It goes without saying how good the Priest were last night in Cardiff - 35 years plus at the top of their game. (All pics by me)

The backbone of Judas Priest: KK Downing and Glenn Tipton @ the CIA.

For the record, Judas Priest played:
01. Intro: Dawn of Creation
02. Prophecy
04. Eat Me Alive
05. Between the Hammer and the Anvil
06. Devil's Child
08. Hell Patrol
09. Death
10. Dissident Aggressor
11. Angel
12. The Hellion / Electric Eye
13. Rock Hard, Ride Free
14. Sinner
15. Painkiller
16. Hell Bent for Leather
17. The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Crown)
18. You've Got Another Thing Coming

Megadeth turned in a great set, combining old classics and newer stuff, lasting best part of an hour. Highlight for me was "Peace Sells". Also good was "Wake Up Dead" and "In My Darkest Hour".
To me they just lack that final killer punch that would have put them in the big league over all these years.

Megadeth's Dave Mustaine
Testament opened up the evening with a 35 minute set. I first saw them as a support band back in 1988. They weren't much cop then, and things hadn't changed much - not for me.
