There were several when I saw Maiden back in September 2022 at the Pond in Anaheim (where the Anaheim Ducks play).  The entire floor was GA.  Had it been Priest, I have no doubt, there'd have been a big-ass pit for Painkiller.

A pit for IM is still pretty iffy from my experience.  It's happened, but not at all the GA floor IM pits I've been in.  Maybe the NYC crowds just suck.  I think it's entirely possible.  Obviously I've seen plenty of shows where the crowd is wild, but not usually for the 80s and older bands.

Before Painkiller the other night, Scott Travis asked the crowd what the one last song we wanted to hear was.  Of course, most yelled for Painkiller.  I joked to the friend I went with later that no one heard me yell for Night Comes Down. :lol

I think I would have enjoyed the NJ show a lot more if the crowd was like this, that energy even if not in the pit can usually be felt.  Now I get why my video had so many comments about the dead crowd  :lol I just blamed it on being an older band.  Sabaton would have done much better with that GA crowd too.


I dont like that Pru Center Venue at all

You must have felt like you were there all alone, with nowhere to go.


Also...good to see you here again!

It's such an underrated deep cut.

I love that song.  One of Tiptons most underrated lead breaks too.

Thanks!

And exactly (to the first part of your post).  :lol :lol

Damn right!  I promoted it into my Priest top 5 in the last few years.  A Touch of Evil was a little bummed about being bumped down to number 6, but Beyond the Realms of Death, Victim of Changes, Sinner and Desert Plains are pretty locked in to my 1-4 spots.  :hat :hat

Yes, Night Comes Down is an awesome slow piece and I'm a Rocker is very cool (heard it on the reunion tour). But Painkiller is a genre-defining song come on.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

I get that, but a song being "important" or genre-defining isn't going to make me like it.  Besides, I am more of a rock guy than a metal one, and Priest's faster songs don't always stick to landing for me, although some do.  I am looking at you, Freewheel Burning.  :metal :metal

Me exactly.  I LOVE Freewheel Burning, but it's the exception that proves the rule.

Forgot to address this, but beside the love for the song from the fandom, I think that's kinda a loaded question. For the first and only time in the show, the spotlight is on the drummer, and the drummer whose very first contribution with the band was a song with one of the most iconic drum intros of the entire genre, and he's asking you, near the end of the show when it's classics time, which song you want to hear. OF COURSE most will yell for Painkiller  :D

And as I'm typing this, I'm finishing to listen to Invincible Shield. Still a kickass album through and through.  :metal

Hell, in that instance, I think even I would yell for "Painkiller".   ;) :) :)

After yet another listen to Invincible Shield I continue to be blown away by how good this album is. A band 50 years into a career with 19 albums and their latest cracks the top 7 for me? Unbelievable. I wouldn't mind if Petrucci played some of these type classic metal riffs on DT16. No simplistic chugging PLEASE. I'm begging you JP.

Agreed. After a few months with it, I'd truthfully say it's my favorite JP album. No hyperbole.

Yeah, I've made it known I'm not a huge JP fan, but this album so far is cracking my top 5 of the year.  It's really good and I just love the way it sounds.
