In May 2012, Judas Priest wrapped up their epic "Epitaph" world tour with a storming set at London's Hammersmith Apollo. The band, having announced that this would be their final large-scale world tour, celebrated their last and possibly final show with an incredible career-spanning set list that brought down the house. In addition to performing all their classics "Breaking The Law," "Living After Midnight" and "You ve Got Another Thing Comin'" the Priest dug deep into their catalog, performing at least one song from each of their albums, which rounded off their 23-song set list.
Now, one year later, this legendary set will be released on DVD, BluRay and digital long form video by Legacy Recordings (US). The Epitaph captures Priest's electrifying over the top metal onslaught and is proof they are still at the top of their game after 40 years of headbanging.

...and what better way to open the show than Rapid Fire and Metal Gods! For some reason, much better this time around than the British Steel tour.
Rob Halford's voice is in fine form on this tour as he nails some amazing high notes during Night Crawler, Blood Red Skies, and Victim of Changes. His only weakness is changing outfits between every song. One thing I love about a HALFORD show is he sticks to jeans and t-shirt.
KK Downing is greatly missed, but Richie Falkner really delivers the goods. I especially like his intro to "the Sentinel" with Glenn.
The editing on the DVD is a bit fast, however the cuts are not just completely random. For example it will go from wide shot of the stage to a medium close up of Glenn to a close up of Glenn's face to an extreme close up of his fingers on the guitar.
One major weakness of this DVD is lack of crowd shots. They keep cutting back to this generic master shot of the crowd from the side, but there are very few close ups of any fans. If you were at this show, don't expect to find yourself! It's almost like they didn't have permission to film the crowd or something?! Compare this with the Electric Eye 1986 concert in Dallas where the fans are a major part of the concert.
I was lucky enough to attend the Epitaph show in Denver and this London DVD is almost identical. One minor detail that I miss is the cool as heck Epitaph/Legacy banner during Blood Red Skies. At least all the pyro is still being used.
Anyway, if you saw Priest on the Epitaph tour this is a great souvenir to pick up and relive the excitement. The massive setlist should please all types of Priest fans.
Please note the setlist on the Amazon production information is way out of order. Never fear, the actual DVD has the real setlist in the order it was played during the tour.
Of course the members of Priest have grown older, and even the Metal God has succumbed to the ravages of time. Some songs where I wish I would have heard the legendary high notes that made him the singer that other metal gods could only aspire to, but I was surprised at some of the notes that he was able to hit during several of the songs that he performed.
All in all if your a fan of the Priest, than this is a DVD that you'll want to add to your Metal collection.
I caught the final leg of Judas Priest Mid West tour in November 2012 - When it passed thru Chicago,Il And it was a concert never ever to be forgotten Glad they put it out for all fans of METAL to see and cherish
There will never ever be a band like JUDAS PRIEST EVER!!
This is a MUST HAVE
