Judas Priest @ The Microsoft Theater – 04/22/2018
British heavy metal pioneers Judas Priest and Saxon took over the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday April 22 in promotion of Priest’s 18th studio album Firepower released in early March. Black Star Riders supported and opened the Southern California tour stop.
Priest fans sold out the theater to hear old favorites like “Turbo Lover,” “Bloodstone,” “Grinder,” “Hell Bent for Leather” and “Painkiller,” and new releases like “Evil Never Dies” despite the band’s news announcing longtime guitarist Glenn Tipton’s break from touring to focus on medical issues. Al Tipton did make an appearance on stage for “Metal Gods,” “Breaking the Law” and “Living After Midnight” toward the end of the set for the adoring metal maniacs. The U.S. tour continues on through Oklahoma and Texas before making its way to Europe in June.
