I very much agree with this. Yes, two years is a short gap. But at the same time, it's their 50th year, and they are in my mind the single most important band in the history of heavy metal.

Black Sabbath and Motorhead are more important.

You could make a strong argument for Sabbath. I happen to disagree, but I can see why that claim would be made. I just don't see it for Motörhead.

I think it's more down to the relative scarcity of Priest gigs in the UK - cos of the Ozzy tour, the last BoA appearance has been their only gig in 4 years - they don't alternate festivals every year and dont do annual tours.

Plus, a decent Priest greatest hits set pleases everyone except the worst meatheads - you get the trad stuff from the 70s, the 80s big hair screaming leads stuff, thrashers off of Painkiller, proggy noodly stuff, famous ballads, big stupid sing-along numbers - All performed by a frontman that doesn't look like he's been reheated that morning (looking at you, Klaus).

I dunno, Nearly every other post on this thread since the announcement has been people saying its too soon.

Me included.

I like a few Mercyful Fate records but I hope to *insert deity of choice* that an SG slot isn't wasted on them. King Diamonds voice is truly awful now. He sounds like Tiny Tim. At least Tiny Tim sang in tune. I feel like if they are booked it will be on account of their status as a classic act rather than the quality of the band!


So just like Slayer the last two times they played then?

Very happy with the announcement. Fucking love Behemoth and they are easily my favourite band on the bill atm

Priest is to soon but im not gonna complain as the 20th + 50th anniversary are a pretty perfect match up. If anything I think Bloodstock made a mistake booking them for last year and should have saved their first appearance at the festival for this year knowing it was coming

Absolutely this, happy they're back but having played so recently takes the edge off it.

Also I wish they were headlining over a better lineup. Only really Priest, Gloryhammer and Dark Tranquility on my must see list so far. Hopefully the sophie stage saves it again.

I know on the last Judas Priest US tour they brought back many songs that they hadnt played for a number of years, looked great TBH

OK, I`m at least hoping one Bloodstock related organizer looks at this forum now and again(!)
To make their appearance "Something unique" at Bloodstock and 50th anniversary etc
Why not ask this forum or even the awful FB page for 2-3 Priest songs that they would like to hear that are not part of the recent set list? (Dissident agressor? Jawbreaker? Hell is Home? Locked in? Tyrant?)

This would make a Priest Headline set truly unique to BOA and to Priest and to the fans

Pointless, you'd just end up with thousands of votes for Painkiller and Breakin The Law

Agreed - when Metallica did it the most popular songs were the standard ones, so would have been an average set with little surprises.

Anyway, Priest never strike me as that kind of band - they'll have a set for the tour and they'll stick to it. They've never really indulged the UK as anything other than another stop on a tour - even leaving us out on a few.

Just get them to play the whole of Sad Wings of Destiny. That would be the perfect set for me.

To make it unique and an event to remember, I'd vote for a Bossa Nova version of Beyond The Realms Of Death.
