1998 - Judas Priest
20.03.1998 Stadthalle, Gross – Umstadt
While Ex – front man and vocalist Rob Halford tries to impress with his new band TWO, Judas Priest is far from extinction.
The tour rocks through 16 countries and their logo: “The beast is back” gets support through their hard guitar riffs.
The hall in the small Gross – Umstadt can only hold 800 people and approximately 600 fans made their way to this rather rural place for German standards.
Surely, Judas Priests big years are over and like many of their aging colleagues they also pay the price to the ever ticking time but the rock legend showed no signs of aging tonight.
Despite brilliant songs from the new album – Oldie “Breaking the law” was the one to lead the fans into ecstatic screams.
The priest lives on …
