Judas Priestwarmed up for their 50th anniversary tour of America by headlining the Bloodstock Open Air festival Sunday in Walton-on-Trent, England.
With 50 years to celebrate, they broke out a song they'd never played in concert, one they hadn't done in 45 years, and five others that were left out of set lists between 2005 and 2012.
- "One Shot at Glory"- They opened with this, marking the first time they'd ever played the final track on 1990'sPainkillerin concert.
- "Rocka Rolla"- It was first time they'd played the title track off their 1974 debut album in 45 years (1976).
- "Exciter" and "A Touch of Evil"- First time since 2005.
- "Hell Patrol" and "Dissident Aggressor" - First time since 2009.
- "Blood Red Skies"- First time since 2012.
Like he did on their last tour in 2019, guitarist Glenn Tipton, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's seven years ago, came out for the last three songs of the show -- "Metal Gods," "Breaking the Law" and "Living After Midnight."
Priest start their U.S. tour on September 8th in Reading, Pennsylvania.
