    For those who don’t know, Mar. 30 – Orillia, ON – Casino Rama has NO support, NO Saxon and NO BSR.
    Which I find kinda ridiculous.
    I was gonna go to this show as I wanted to see Saxon as well but no support……fuck.

    Love the format of the new M n’ M Show! 5-10 mins is perfect for a video/youtube show, anything much longer than that and I probably wouldn’t sit there and watch on my phone or laptop, longer shows are much better in audio format so I can listen while I’m driving or at work.

    Rock on, guys!

    Still no Chicago. The best performance on Redeemer was in San Jose but they are playing in San Francisco instead. This is kind of a fail unless they add more dates.

    BTW, Maiden looks like they are doing another throwback tour !

    Cool Gerry. I am hitting the NJ show right near my house. Can’t wait!

  7. TalkingMetal November 15, 2017 6:47 pm 

    No Chicago date? That’s like one of the biggest markets, crazy.

  8. TalkingMetal November 15, 2017 6:51 pm 

    Thanks for watching Steve – more on the way!

    Yeah, that sucks but maybe it means Priest will play longer which wouldn’t be a bad thing.
