British metal gods break out rarely played hits, new 'Firepower' cuts on current tour

Judas Priest have been propelled by their unique brand of leather-clad ferocity for half a century now, but despite this longevity, they still manage to keep things fresh onstage. When the British metal gods kicked off the latest leg of their Firepower tour on Friday night, May 3rd, they brought out a slew of live debuts including "Spectre," "Traitors Gate," and "Necromancer" (from 2018's Firepower), as well as "(Take These) Chains" from 1982's Screaming for Vengeance.

The videos are fan-filmed and capture a broad view of the elaborate stage, complete with front man Rob Halford's impressive array of wardrobe choices to match the stage lighting. The band also pulled out several tracks they've kept in the live vaults for many years, such as "Judas Rising" and "Steeler" — and brought out Glenn Tipton — who stepped away from touring after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease — for an encore performance of "Breaking the Law" and "Living After Midnight."

A higher quality look at the whole performance can be seen below, showcasing an up-close look at the whole band's opulent get-ups and zeroing in on the multitude of talents held by the classic group. Dystopian animations flash against the big screen background, and varying shades of red and purple flash throughout the high-energy performance. See a full set list below via The PRP, and check out a full list of dates from Judas Priest's current extensive North American tour with Uriah Heep beneath that.
