Last night heavy metal gods Judas Priest rocked Los Angeles at The Shrine Auditorium. The band is celebrating 50 Heavy Metal Years by showing their spirits haven’t aged since they formed in 1969 in Birmingham. Still dressed in spikes, rhinestones, and leather, Judas Priest gathered an energetic crowd of metalheads head banging along for the entire two-hour set. Frontman Rob Halford led the band through deeper cuts, more recent songs, and the classics including You Got Another Thing Coming and Breaking The Law.
Towards the end of the concert, Judas Priest’s original guitarist Glenn Tipton joined the stage to play the final songs, including the finale of Living After Midnight. Tipton stopped touring with the band a few years ago after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, but proved last night nothing can stop him. Multiple audience members rushed onto the stage during the encore set, but were quickly chased by security and thus stage dove back into the audience after their few seconds of fame.
