A BLABBERMOUTH.NET reader reported the following:
"I was at the JUDAS PRIEST concert last night [October 9] at the Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ where JUDAS PRIEST performed (sort of).
"About four songs into their set, Rob Halford [vocals] came on stage with a mug of some liquid. While he was sipping away, he explained to the audience that he was suffering from a case of influenza. By the song 'Breaking the Law', he was looking for some breathing room for his voicebox. By the time he got to 'Screaming for Vengeance' he had pretty much lost his voice and it became an 'audience participation' rendition, waving the crowd on to sing for him. It was very obvious that he was struggling for most of the night to get the lyrics out and couldn't wait for the show to be over."
As previously reported, JUDAS PRIEST plan to reconvene after the Christmas holidays to begin writing a new album, the follow-up to this year's comeback CD, "Angel of Retribution". Halford told RecordOnline.com that the group never saw their reunion, in which he sang with them for the first time in 14 years, as a one-shot deal. "We don't want people to get the impression it's a grab-the-money-and-run thing," he said. "We missed making the metal together, and when we got back together, it was never for a quick fix. It was all about doing what was left to be done. There's more metal to make."
PRIEST are currently touring North America and perform tomorrow night (Tuesday, October 11) in Poughkeepsie, New York. After the trek wraps up on October 30 in California, the band will head to Russia and Eastern Europe.
