I counted at least 17 festivals last summer so…
Let's suppose that the average in attendance per festival are 35.000 people:
17 x 35.000 = 595.000 people.
If suppose that the average in attendance in the rest of the shows are 3.500 people:
128 x 3.500 = 448.000 people

595.000 + 448.000 = 1.043.000 people. Its a close number.
At the begining I thought the same as you (too much people) but it's really possible.

K I see it now. I’m at work and Twitter is blocked.

That number seems to be a little large. I don’t think any of the shows on this last go around would have hit 8k.
There is a massive outlier in the tour, a free festival in Poland with an attendance of 250,000. That brings down the average to a little over 7000 and they did also play many festivals.

You can find some official boxscores here:


I think Billboard no longer reports boxscores below a certain attendance; that is why there are so few available from Judas Priest's tour.

I would be curious to see the true average without the festivals.

K.K. Downing will play with Ross The Boss at Bloodstock Festival next month. This will be his first appearance since he left Priest in 2011.

They will perform an hour-long set that's expected to include at least 4 Priest songs.

If you go to the blabbermouth website, you will see comments from a delusional KK fangirl "Laura Altimari" who says that people should stop talking shit about him because he only "speaks the truth". KK is the one who has been talking shit about the band especially about Richie Faulkner.
