The November 5 event at the Microsoft Theater saw Judas Priest honored with the Musical Excellence Award, which is given to artists, musicians, songwriters and producers whose originality and influence creating music have had a dramatic impact on music.

Inducted were current members Rob Halford, bassist Ian Hill, guitarist Glenn Tipton and drummer Scott Travis, along with former members K.K. Downing (guitar), Les Binks (drums) and late drummer Dave Holland.

Judas Priest wrapped up their 50 Heavy Metal Years fall US tour in Houston, TX on November 29.
