Editorial Reviews

After more than 12 years apart Judas Priest and original lead vocalist Rob Halford reunited for a global live concert tour in 2004. They were a main attraction on the sell-out Ozzfest tour playing to enormous and enthusiastic audiences nationwide. Rising In the East was filmed in May 2005 at Tokyo's famous Budokan. The DVD captures the band at their metal best, performing all of the classics-"Electric Eye," "Breaking the Law," "Living After Midnight," "You've Got Another Thing Coming," and much more. Track Listings: Hellion, Electric Eye, Metal Gods, Riding on the Wind, Ripper, Touch of Evil, Judas Rising, Revolution, Hot Rockin', Breaking the Law, I'm A Rocker, Diamonds and Rust, Worth Fighting For, Deal with the Devil, Beyond the Realms of Death, Turbo Lover, Hellrider, Victim of Changes, Exciter, Painkiller, Hell Bent For Leather, Living After Midnight, You've Got Another Thing Coming

5.0 out of 5 stars Made of Metal November 21, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The boys were up for the taping of this performance. Rob Halford is on; KK Downing's and Glenn Tipton's guitar playing is tight as the studio versions of the songs. Ian Hill rocks and Scott Travis' drumming is up front and quite impressive.

The difference between the live performance in this release versus the 1986 performance included with the 2003 Electric Eye music video collection DVD is that before the boys took the stage for this performance at the Budokan in Tokyo, Japan, they must have agreed to try to be as true to the studio versions as Rob's voice would allow (give him a break; remember he's been taxing his vocal chords and hitting the high notes in Victim of Changes for like thirty years!).

The sound quality is great. If you've got surround sound you're in for a pounding Heavy Metal treat. The picture is great. And the footage doesn't jump around all the time; the camera gives you more than the typical music video four seconds before jumping to another angle, so you can really feel like you're watching the show live.

Any Priest fan should not pass on this DVD. I'm telling you, the chills were non-stop for me; I couldn't believe they included The Ripper and Exciter. And you get (just about) every other rocker that you really want to see. In other words, Rising in the East is a compilation of terrific live performances of the following:

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD as good as it was live November 28, 2005
I was actually at this show. I flew to Japan and saw this show and the Osaka show.

This is actually the 2nd show at Budokan. The band played the night before, and the sales were so strong, that they added a second date. This 2nd was how also nearly sold-out...only a few seats in the upper corners were available.

Knowing the band, and being there...I can fill in a few details. First of all, this was a last minute thing. The DVD shoot was thrown together very quickly. There was even some doubt in Osaka that it could be done. The Japanese pulled it off.

The show in Osaka was awesome. Huge arena and completely sold-out. Worth Fighting For was put in the set for the very first time. Rob's voice that night was very good, considering the previous shows in Japan.

Two days later, was the first Budokan show. I was supposed to go, but amazingly...couldn't find the arena nor could I explain to any taxi driver where I wanted to go. So I missed it. Apparently, the Japanese do not pronounce it BOO DOH CON, but pronounce it BEE OOH DOO CON. Pronounciation, is apparently critical in Japanese, or so I've learned.

The next night, (back to back nights) Priest played this show recorded on the DVD. First of all...I've seen Rob on this tour about 6 or 7 times. People are critical of his voice that it's not like it was 30 years ago. Come on! He's been signing straight through for over 30 years and certainly still has better pipes at 50+ than many of his peers (hello Robert Plant). That said, Rob does not hit all the high notes he hit back in the 70's and 80's, but I think his voice is more interesting. He uses more textures in varying pitches to sing the songs and then hits the critical high notes when needed. When needed...

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars - These guys still got it... trust me March 10, 2006
Rising In The East(2005). Priest's third live DVD performance.

Sometime around August 2003, all Judas Priest fans around the world were in for a HUGE and pleasant surprise: Rob Halford had rejoined Priest and was in the process of creating a new album and promoting a massive world tour to reaquaint himself with the band. This was especially apparent when looking at their website and noticing that the band's old logo had returned, so things had to be right. It worked and the band was back in business, thriving once again in huge arenas around the world, forgetting about the past 7 years with Tim "Ripper" Owens and picking up where Priest left off on that fateful day in 1992 at the end of the Painkiller tour. All drama that was built up and took place in the band was now extinguished, and so Priest could finally have fun and press forward again.

Fast forward to May 2005. Priest had already released Angel Of Retribution(2005) and met with massive success (yeah not as huge of an impact as British Steel(1980) or Screaming For Vengeance(1982) back in the day, but in this day in age full of Nu-metal, mallcore, power metal clones, and monotonic death metal bands, any success for AoR is stellar). It saw Priest return to form as the classic heavy metal machine, promoting a new tour blending old favorites with the new material. And so we get to this concert specifically:

Priest felt that since Japan had many of their most energetic fans and that Unleashed In The East(1979) was made too early to have a proper video accompany the recording, returning to Tokyo would be the best bet for Priest's new DVD endeavor. And we get a solid performance for the most part.

4.0 out of 5 stars Judas Priest still can rock
I love listening to this more so than watching it, because they all look so freaking old. At least they can still play and Halford can still sing, but they look so freaking old.
