Rob Halford, Judas Priest

Glenn Tipton Talks To About Epitaph Tour

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

For a band on the verge of supposed retirement, UK metal gods JUDAS PRIEST certainly have a lot on their plate to appease fans across the globe. For starters, the newly Chosen Few compilation and Singles Cuts box set have collectors frothing at the mouth. And the five-piece are causing a frenzy amongst tour-goers wondering if this will indeed be the final Epitaph? And of course with new guitarist Richie Faulkner in the ranks, the Priest are firing with all cylinders again. Guitarist Glenn Tipton - who has duelled on-stage with K.K. Downing for nearly forty years before his exit earlier this year - is in fine spirits and rises over any drama in a calm, cool and most certainly collected manner. The revered guitarist spoke to on the phone from a warm and sunny Reno, Nevada this week, just prior to yet another farewell (?) show. A chat with one of the metal gods can be read here.

"Our Legacy Is In Our Music" A Classic Rock Revisited Interview With Glenn Tipton

The Chosen Few review by Classic Rock Revisited

Friday, October 14, 2011

Okay, I admit it; this is not the first Judas Priest compilation to hit the market. In fact, it isn�t even the most in-depth, as the band have collections that go much deeper than the 17 tracks found here. It is, however, the coolest one they have ever put out, which, in this Metal Head�s opinion, goes a long way to keeping the Metal flame burning brightly, as the Metal Gods hit the road on their Epitaph tour, which is their last full out, world tour, ever.

Farewell Tour clarification from Judas Priest

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

We would like to clarify a situation that seems to be confusing a few people out there.
When we issued our press release to announce the farewell tour - we stated that it was the last major world tour for Judas Priest - nothing has changed - we didn't say it was the end of the band or that we were going to retire or the band was going to break up........... Just that it would be the last major world tour we would be doing which is still the case.
We have plans for a new album (which we have already announced in an earlier press release) plus possible future releases and we would still consider doing the odd live show - if it is something special or for a great cause - but no more world tours.

"We had no idea we were making anything special," says Judas Priest guitarist Glenn Tipton of the 1980 album British Steel, now celebrating its 30th anniversary and heralded by millions of fans as a defining moment, not only for the band but for heavy metal as a genre.

"After we finished it, we listened back and we knew we liked it, but we couldn't have anticipated the effect it would have on our careers. Its success shocked us all."

Co-guitarist KK Downing recalls that �the songs felt a bit tighter than anything we had done prior. But we didn�t sit down and say, 'Right, this is what we need to get on the radio.' As the saying goes, we were flying by the seat of our pants.�

Judas Priest to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday, September 2nd,2008

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

Name any current heavy metal band, and they've knowingly or unknowingly borrowed a thing or two from Judas Priest. Having sold millions of albums (including such classics as "British Steel", "Screaming for Vengeance", and "Painkiller"), scored many radio standards ("Breaking the Law", "Living After Midnight", and "You've Got Another Thing Comin'"), and staged numerous sold out tours for decades by this point, you'd think that Judas Priest has accomplished just about everything within the rock stratosphere.

Judas Priest Interview in Illinois Entertainer

Thursday, July 31, 2008

Who could have predicted a band who�ve been around since the beginning of time (more precisely, since the inception of heavy metal) would produce such an audaciously ambitious project? Judas Priest�s Nostradamus is a 23-track, double-CD concept album. Unlike the central figures in other such releases like Pink Floyd�s The Wall, The Who�s Tommy, or Iron Maiden�s Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son (also a seer), Nostradamus actually existed. With orchestral elements, Rob Halford�s piercingly high and alternately resonant low vocals, and one cut mainly sung in Italian, it almost deserves to be called a metal opera.

Appearing: 8/17 at First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Tinley Park.

Message from Glenn Tipton!

Friday, July 18, 2008

Well we've finished the first leg of the Priest tour in Europe and had a fantastic reaction from everywhere starting in Helsinki and finishing in Istanbul. We played Countries that we have never been to before such as Romania and Turkey which we found fascinating - there were even fans from Iran at the Istanbul show! It goes to show just how rock and metal is underestimated and so popular all over this world!

Belgrade and Zagreb Shows Cancelled

Tuesday, July 01, 2008

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel two shows - tonight in Belgrade and tomorrow in Zagreb - this is due to Glenn Tipton being ill - he has been pretty sick for about a week now but has struggled on regardless - he has been in a lot of pain and has been told be a doctor that he is suffering from a very painful appendix inflammation and needs to come back to the UK to see a specialist which he is doing today - he has been instructed by the doctor not to perform for a couple of days - this is the first time in the history of Judas Priest that we have had to cancel any shows and we are very sorry to all those disappointed fans - however Glenn's health must come first! 

Many thanks for understanding!

Message about Nostradamus and Metal Masters US promotion

Monday, May 12, 2008

We have just come back from the states where we had a week of intensive promotion for the new Judas Priest album 'Nostradamus' and Metal Masters US Tour! It all went really well and the reaction to the album has been phenominal!! We did two in-stores (something JP haven't done in over 25 years!) - see a few of the photos below - as you can see some people ask the band to sign the strangest things - one woman even brought her 3 week old twins along and wanted the guys to sign their bibs...!!
