VIDEO: Steel Panther join Judas Priest for Living After Midnight in Tacoma

Judas Priest were joined by openers Steel Panther for their 1980 classic, “Living After Midnight”, in Tacoma, Washington during the encore of the final show of the group’s fall North American tour.

The November 22 date at the Tacoma Dome wrapped up a 6-week run in support of the band’s latest album, “Redeemer Of Souls”, as part of the group’s 40th anniversary tour.

“A big screaming thank you to our metal maniacs for a killer first leg of the Redeemer of Souls world tour 2014/15 - You all kept the Faith!,” says the band. “We are looking forward to seeing the rest of our #priestfamily in 2015.”

The project delivered the UK metal legends the first US Top 10 of their career.

“Redeemer Of Souls” debuted in July at No. 6 on the US Billboard 200 with 33,000 copies sold, surpassing the group’s previous chart peak of No. 11 with 2008’s “Nostradamus.”

Judas Priest will return to the road in late February for Australia’s Soundwave Festival before performing a Japanese tour; a summer European trek starts May 30 at the Rockavaria Festival in Munich, Germany.
