In his review of the concert, David Lindquist of IndyStar.com writes, "Sporting tattoos on each side of his head and a studded denim vest over a leather jacket, [Rob] Halford pronounced the evening as the 'world premiere of 'British Steel' live.' The show served as an amped-up dress rehearsal for PRIEST's summer tour, which begins Wednesday in a Missouri basketball arena with WHITESNAKE on board as the opening act.
"Monday's performance began at 7:50 p.m., and a relieved Halford said, 'We made it,' when the nine songs of 'British Steel' concluded 40 minutes later.
"The novelty then shifted from one landmark album to one cozy venue. In the context of the 2,400-capacity Murat, audience members saw old-school green lasers bounce around the room, the evolution of Halford's costume changes and occasional moments when bass player Ian Hill appeared to be winded."
