Last year, heavy-metal legends Judas Priest announced their retirement, dubbing this their Epitaph Tour. Since then, the group has replaced early retiree K.K. Downing with a younger guitarist and quasi-announced a new record, welcoming more than a few question marks. What remains clear, though, is that this may be the last time the band who brought leather, controversy and law-breakin’ to metal will play in the New York Area. With Black Label Society and Thin Lizzy.
