“Metal maniacs – Judas Priest is roaring back to the USA for one more blast of Firepower! Firepower 2019 charges forth with new first time performances born out of Firepower, as well as fresh classic cuts across the decades from the Priest world metalsphere. Our visual stage set and light show will be scorching a unique, hot, fresh vibe – mixing in headline festivals, as well as the in – your – face venue close ups. We can’t wait to reunite and reignite our maniacs…THE PRIEST IS BACK!” – Judas Priest
There are few Heavy Metal bands that have managed to scale the heights that Judas Priest have during their nearly 50 – year career – responsible for issuing such all – time classic albums as British Steel, Screaming for Vengeance, and Painkiller, as well as the anthems “Breaking the Law,” “Living After Midnight,” and “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming.”
And Priest’s presence and influence remains strong, as evidenced by the chart performance of Firepower and its glowing reviews, a Grammy Award win for “Best Metal Performance,” plus being a VH1 “Rock Honors” recipient and a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination.
