VIDEO: Glenn Tipton performs with Judas Priest in Kent, Washington

Guitarist Glenn Tipton rejoined his Judas Priest bandmates to perform a three-song encore during the band’s April 15 concert in Kent, WA, and video from the event is streaming online.

The rocker was in the lineup for the group’s classic tracks "Metal Gods", "Breaking The Law" and "Living After Midnight" at the city’s ShoWare Center.

The show marked Tipton’s fourth appearance on the group’s “Firepower” tour of North America – after stops in Newark, NJ on March 20 and Uncasville, CT on March 22 – and news of his retirement from the road following a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease.

“Firepower” co-producer Andy Sneap recently stepped into the Judas Priest lineup as Tipton’s choice to take over his touring duties, while leaving the door open for possible random appearances on the trek.

Judas Priest’s current spring run with Saxon and Black Star Riders will wrap up in San Antonio, TX on May 1.

The group’s 18th album, “Firepower” recently landed the veteran metal outfit their highest-charting US album with its debut at No. 5 on the Billboard 200, while also scoring their first UK Top 10 album in 38 years with a No. 5 entry on the Offical Charts.
