edit: Oh, and the reason I'm posting in the first place is to chime in that according to Les, there will be 3 guitarists and 2 drummers playing an 8 minute medley.

Can't wait to see a medley of Breaking the Law, Living after Midnight, Metal Gods and You've Got Another Thing Coming.  All songs that showcase none of the bands skills.
Yeah, pretty much. But at the same time those area also the songs that got them into the thing in the first place. For this thing it honestly does make sense.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

Oh definitely.  I honestly wouldn't expect any different.

And not to be a dick, but to make El Barto's point, they might not even include Metal Gods (even with the connection to Rob).

At first I only listed the main three.  Metal Gods was an afterthought truthfully.

I saw them last night in a small theater, which was amazing.  The only other time I have seen Priest was at Ozzfest 2004, when they reunited with Halford, which was outdoors at an amphitheater, so you're far away and stuck watching video screens.  To be much closer and in a small venue was perfect.  They came right out of the gate with 3 songs from Screaming For Vengeance, and after that, Halford had truly warmed up.  At the end of the fourth song (Jawbreaker), he hit some massive high notes that blew the crowd away.  After that, he was STUNNING.  He sounded so well singing cleanly and then would break into higher notes so easily.  I did not expect him to be that good, given that he's 71, and we've all seen him struggle with songs like Painkiller. 

The band was completely on fire, bashing through song after song.  Ritchie Faulkner is amazing, such a killer guitarist and a wonderful showman.  He was interacting with fans up front as often as he could, posing for photos, making devil horns on his head with his fingers, then jumping back into a riff, and shredding like crazy.  My sight line wasn't as good to see Andy Sneap's side of the stage, but he seemed to hold things down with ease, and it was easy to forget that Ian Hill was in the back, thumping away.  My attention was mainly on Halford and Ritchie. 

I missed Turbo Lover, which they haven't been playing on this leg.  I love that song and thought it would be played.  The same with The Sentinel.  Other than that, their set was fantastic and hearing a bunch of rare songs like Genocide, Steeler, Screaming for Vengeance, and Riding on the Wind made up for the 2-3 songs I wanted to hear.

Hell yeah my friend. Glad you had a blast. Happy you got to see two shows you'd been waiting for. Back in the concert saddle.  :metal

Thanks, and I go when I can.  Driving 70 miles for a show is becoming a pain in the ass with younger kids (re: Mercyful Fate's only show in the area is in Gary, Indiana vs. 20 miles further north in Chicago proper).  I have no interest in making that far of a trip on a weeknight.  But a handful of miles away to see Priest?  That's a no brainer!

Was fortunate enough to attend the rock & roll hall of fame induction ceremony in LA last night, awesome to see the full current lineup + KK Downing and Les Binks all on stage together, putting aside any tension or ego to accept this long overdue honor. Full concert will be on hbo in a few weeks  :tup

Caught fan filmed version of most of it. It was cool. Sadly KK stuck almost entirely to his little side of the stage and seemed to interact mostly with Ritchie, oddly enough, but it was cool to see a moment or two of him and Halford having fun. KK didn't seem to interact with anyone else at all on stage. And Les Binks......I'm not sure his kit was even mic'd up. He didn't seem to be putting any physical effort into it and it was pretty obvious we were just hearing their current drummer.

I read that Downing and Tipton stayed as far away from each other as possible, in rehearsals and at the ceremony, so it doesn't like any tension was put aside, but still cool to see them get recognized.

This squashes any fantasies about KK rejoining after performing with the band here.

I saw a fan filmed video this morning of that medley (Thing Comin'/Breaking the Law/Midnight). It felt nice to see KK up there with them, and having some interaction with Rob as well.

Halford posted a pic in Insta of him and Dolly Parton onstage, I almost fell over and then looked on YouTube...
Nothing could have prepared me for Halford performing 'Jolene' with some of the other RNRHOF inductees, I am scarred for life  :rollin

I enjoyed the clip of Halford's speech, talking about the heavy metal community and inclusivity.   He's such a great ambassador for metal music.  It's weird to think that they were playing near my home 2 weeks ago, and are now in the Hall of Fame, but I'm happy for them.

Inductees were Halford, Tipton, Downing, Ian Hill, Scott Travis & Les Binks.

I give Richie a lot of credit to stand up there and play with them, despite not getting inducted. He was really humble about it and excited to be on stage with Tipton and Downing.

So happy for Rob and the band,  they were my fav band for so long, saw them on Hell Bent tour onward, them and Thin Lizzy really shaped my musical taste after the Beatles. Rob was always super nice when I had the chance to meet them around Screaming and Turbo era...  forever a JP fan....

Dolly Parton is class personified. Just had to throw that out there.

Also, if you didn't join Priest until after Painkiller, you had no business being inducted, so while the "newer" members have all done their jobs well to varying degrees, none of them had anything to do with Priest getting to the HOF.

That's a class of two:  the guy who replaced Halford for a couple albums that weren't well-received and Richie Faulkner, who joined only a decade ago and has played on only two albums.  Both are no-brainers for not being part of the inducted group.  And, frankly, the inclusion of Les Binks is a bit puzzling (especially when you think about certain glaring exclusions with other artists).
