Judas Priest on American Idol!!



Last night US viewers were treated with a guest appearance by the fantastic (new line-up) Judas Priest on American Idol.

They were joined by ex-idol contestant, the incredible James Durbin. James is infamous for singing the first Metal song on American Idol, Priest’s ‘You’ve got another thing coming’ and for his slogan ‘Give Metal a chance!’. Viewers were treated to not one but TWO classics from the team, ‘Livin’ after midnight’ and ‘Breaking the Law’.


Priest have just announced North American dates for the band’s Epitaph Tour. Here’s what Rob Halford had to say at an L.A. press conference Tuesday:

“We’re pulling out all the stops,” singer Rob Halford told the media at an L.A. press conference Tuesday. “We’ve built a brand new stage set, we’ve got all the effects that people love us for — the lasers, the fire, the bombs, the smoke, new costumes, and the bike. It’s just a full-on metal extravaganza.”

The finale will be screened on ITV2 tomorrow at 9pm, don’t miss it!
