Judas Priest


As iconic, leather-clad Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford accurately observes, “I dare say we were probably the first to start calling ourselves a heavy metal band. I think it’s fair to say it really started with Priest and Sabbath.” Forty-five years later, the archetypal Priest still spew arena-sized music, their unrelenting, soaring, larger-than-life metal inciting and exciting headbangers ranging in age from middle-schoolers to AARP citizens. You’ll get (to the delight of Beavis & Butt-head) “Breaking the Law,” “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming,” and with 17 albums’ worth of songs to choose from, nary a quiet moment is guaranteed.
