Nice to see the Priest back in Paris.

An almost SOLD-OUT Zénith is welcoming them ( 6500 capacity ).
Nostradamus their last concept-album didn't convinced anyone, we only get a few songs from it.
The rest was just Classics , classics & classics...
Scott Travis on drums is kicking ass as usual , he's so good that while playing on "PainKiller" he's taking the time to talk to his drum tech.
Both guitar player K.K. & Glen are both brilliant on guitars while Ian Hill is still as solid on bass even though his bass was put forward too much in the mix.
Unfortunately Rob's voice is very weak and he's sometimes breathless.
There's so much effects on his voice that it is sometimes embarrassing.
I'm also wondering if they are tapes to back him up on some songs.
