Why See Judas Priest?
THE 2018 FIREPOWER TOUR
Judas Priest are heading back to the US for their 2018 tour in support of their brand new album Firepower. This brand new show will feature the band's latest line up of singer Rob Halford, guitarists Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner, bassist Ian Hill, and drummer Scott Travis.
The band originally announced their intent to retire in 2012, with their "Epitaph" tour set to coincide with the departure of Dowling; however, retirement was not for the group as they soon came back with new music! With their career now spanning 40 years Judas Priest show no signs of slowing down.
Having rocketed to superstar status with the release of 1982's Screaming for Vengeance - which to this date remains the band's most successful album - the band are also noted for spawning the macho metal/biker look that is now commonplace for metal bands. And if anybody was in any doubt as to the depth of their status, in 2010, Priest were rated by MTV as the second "Greatest Metal Band" of all time after Black Sabbath. In 2017 Judas Priest have also been nominated to be inducted into the Rock n' Roll hall of Fame, adding to the bands prestigious and infamous status as one of the best Metal bands in the world.
