English heavy metal band Judas Priest brought their Firepower tour to Mohegan Sun and totally blew the roof off the arena. Many people on my social media pages were raving not only about this tour but their new CD as well. I was looking very forward to seeing this show, as I know that Rob Halford and company never disappoint.
Fans started arriving early and the line was long for the general admission pit, as people wanted a spot on the rail. Many were swapping stories about how many times they have seen this tour and many tours in the past. Much respect was flying around for Rob Halford and his power band. The area was packed and your could feel the energy reverberating though out the entire show.
Guitar shredder extraordinaire Richie Faulker certainly knows how to command an audience with his guitar playing. He plays so effortlessly, and many air guitarists in the audience were trying to keep up with him.
The setlist had songs for everyone and included several songs from their new CD such as Firepower, Lightning Strike, and Evil Never Dies. Not many bands would play too many songs from their new CD, but not Judas Priest. All the die hard fans were singing right along with every song, new or old.
Glenn Tipton made a special appearance during Metal Gods and Breaking the Law, and fans were going crazy.
If you are a metal fan, or just a fan of music in general, this is a fantastic show and should not be missed when they stop in your city. I still see my social media pages lighting up with nothing but great words about this show. Enjoy!
