Sunday nights have really become the best night for great concerts and last night was definitely one of the finest nights in music. Northern California was treated to a double dose of heavy metal with legendary Judas Priest and the fun Steel Panther. We arrived at the City National Civic early to find a great line of dedicated fans waiting for the show.

I was really excited to see that Steel Panther was opening for Judas Priest on this tour. We have had the great pleasure of seeing them over half a dozen times and they still hold top honors for the funnest concert ever attended. Before the show we were able to interview Michael Starr and Lexxi Foxx and we will be bringing that hilarious interview to you later this week. Steel Panther put on an awesome set that fired up the crowd and insured that everyone was having a great time. Even those that were not familiar with Steel Panther and might have at first found their humor which some may consider “off color” (I find welcoming and hilarious!!)  soon dismissed their shocked looks on their faces, lighted up and enjoyed the concert. They definitely won over the crowd and got everyone in true metal form for Judas Priest. Check out a sneak peek of photos from our Rockin Ryan of their set:

After Steel Panther, their was an intermission and when the lights came on, you could finally see how packed the venue was! It definitely looked like a sold out or nearly sold out show. I was so excited to finally see Judas Priest live! This was the first time I was going to see Judas Priest since 32 years ago on November 20th, 1982 my parents banned me from attending the show at the Cow Palace because they wouldn’t let us 14 year old girls head out by ourselves to the show!  It was funny to hear the guys next to us who were talking about that very same show. My husband even went to it and told me how it still is one of his favorite concerts of his life.

The lights dimmed and the crowd roared with excitement as the Judas Priest banner dropped and they came out and tore up the place. They started right off with Dragonaut and you could just feel the energy travel through the venue. It was intense and spectacular and clearly deserves to be on my list of top concerts. I was absolutely mesmerized as I watched Rob maneuver the stage as the Metal God that he is. It was humbling to be there and watch the man who truly shaped so many lives and became the foundation of our love of metal. What a night! The set list was filled with favorites as well as new ones. Some of the highlights for me were definitely, Metal Gods, Halls of Valhalla, Love Bites,Turbo Lover, Hell Bent for Leather, and Breaking the Law. To be honest, the entire night was one fantastic highlight! Check out the photos from our Rockin Ryan of their set:

We will be bringing you more coverage of each set but wanted to at least give you a quick recap of the night. Stay tuned for more Judas Priest and Steel Panther to feed your addiction! There is still another week left of the US Tour and I hope you get a chance to see it. Make sure to visit all their social media sites and stay up to date on their latest news.

Morrissey

Morrissey. What can I say about this man, with his incredible voice that became my safe haven in the those crazy angst filled teen years of my past. His voice has been the soundtrack of my life and the songs they sing have taken me through the best and the worst times of my life. I have Morrissey to thank for the wonderful gift of their music.  That is such a shared sentiment by so many fans. You want to talk to him, touch him, hug him, thank him and that is exactly what many fans did and attempted to do last night.

The 54 year old singer was tackled by several fans during the encore performance at the City National Civic in San Jose, Ca last night. Several of the first few fans made it to the stage and you can see just wanted to touch him and Morrissey so kindly obliged them all, even reaching out to those that were being taken away by security.  It continued on through the song, One Day, Goodbye Will Be Farewell and then at one point security could not heed off the fans, as several tackled Morrissey and he fell to the floor. The boos ensued and the band stopped playing. You can watch it in the following video:

 

What a way to start off the tour. Morrissey is currently on a U.S. Tour as we excitedly await the release of the new album, World Peace is None of Your Business, which is scheduled for a July release.  We really hope that fans please respect the singer and for heaven’s sake…. DON’T HURT HIM!!!!!

If you have never experienced a live Morrissey concert, you are in for the night of your life as your soul is fed with emotionally driven lyrics and music that fills your heart. We will keep you updated and hope that Morrissey is okay to continue on with this amazing tour! Check out the upcoming tour dates and get yourself to a show.
