SLCene Suggests: Judas Priest at the Maverik Center

by on November 18, 2014


JUDAS PRIEST, MAVERIK CENTER, Tuesday, Nov. 18, 7:30 p.m., $39.50-$59.50

I can recommend this show using a couple of different lines of thinking. The first one is the most obvious — Judas Priest are true rock ‘n’ roll legends, old-school heavy metal guys who have been plying their sound since the ’70s. And it’s a sound that’s instantly recognizable, thanks to the band’s twin guitars and lead singer Rob Halford’s distinct howl — they don’t call him the Metal God for nothing. Another reason to go is that the band actually has a new album this year, Redeemer of Souls, so this isn’t just another oldies metal band on the road; the Priest is out there with new songs. Of course, you’ll still hear all the classics like “Breaking the Law” and “Living After Midnight.” Some might quibble that it’s not the “classic” Priest lineup since guitarist K.K. Downing in 2011, but it’s sure to still be a raucous good time. Steel Panther opens the show.
