Set II


The Mercenaries of Metal Tour was a 1988 concert tour by British heavy metal band Judas Priest, in support of their most recent release, Ram It Down. It was the band's longest tour of the 1980s, however no official Judas Priest release includes any live recordings from this tour. It was the final tour the band did with longtime drummer Dave Holland.

The average setlist for the tour is show above,[1] though it varied, such as the addition of "Johnny B. Goode" at several shows in Europe,[2] "Turbo Lover" at several shows in North America,[3] and "Beyond the Realms of Death" at various shows.[4][5] The setlist also saw the return of "Sinner", which had been a live staple since 1977, but had been dropped like all other pre-Killing Machine songs (except for "Victim of Changes") during the Fuel for Life Tour.[6]
