VIDEO: Judas Priest joined by Glenn Tipton in San Francisco

Glenn Tipton joined Judas Priest on stage to perform the encore during the band’s April 19 show at The Warfield in San Francisco, CA, and video from the event has surfaced online.

In the lineup for the classic tracks "Metal Gods", "Breaking The Law" and "Living After Midnight", the show marked Tipton’s third live appearance with the band in a week and sixth on the spring tour in support of the group’s 18th album, “Firepower.”

Tipton recently announced his retirement from the road following a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease that has affected his ability to play guitar, although he is featured on the veteran metal outfit’s latest studio effort, which debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 to earn the band their highest-ever charting US album.

The guitarist personally chose album co-producer Andy Sneap to take over his touring duties, with Judas Priest now entering the final week of a spring North American tour that is set to wrap up in San Antonio, TX on May 1.

The band will return to the continent late this summer to team up with Deep Purple for a 25-city co-headlining trek that will begin in Cincinnati, OH on August 21.
