Review: Judas Priest at 1STBANK Center, with Black Label Society and Thin Lizzy, 11/5/11


Somewhere early in the set, Rob Halford told us that the band was going to play material from all roughly forty years of its career including hits and older and more obscure material. And that for the "next two hours and twenty minutes" Priest was going to play heavy metal and we were all going to be a part of it.
