Judas Priest: Prudential Center

Metal gods Judas Priest brought an earth shattering show to the Prudential Center on Saturday night along with sludge metal-heads, Mastodon. Judas Priest have been touring for the past 1 year since the release of Redeemer of Souls, performing at a slew of shows including their previous tour with Steel Panther and Knotfest. The album has been very important to them and is the very first one to have Richie Faulkner record in place of his predecessor, KK Downing. Priest performed a setlist that hit something from almost every era of their extensive discography, celebrating both their new LP “Redeemer of Souls” as well as their 40-year history. Both Faulkner and Tipton were given time to shine during the “heavy metal ballad” “Beyond the Realms of Death” (from the band’s classic 1978 LP “Stained Class”), which crescendoed into a twin guitar metal meltdown. Following the iconic “Breaking the Law,” Halford, as always, rolled out on a Harley for “Hell Bent for Leather” to close out the first set and dish out a double encore from the roar of Halford’s Harley-Davidson wheeling on stage before performing the additional “Pain Killer” and “Living After Midnight” Missed the show? We got you covered for that.
