Due to the overwhelming success of Judas Priest’s 17th studio effort overall, Redeemer of Souls – a release which became the highest-charting album of their career when it debuted on the Billboard 200 charts at No. 6 – the band has announced a fall tour which will hit The Pearl inside Palms Casino Resort on October 17, 2015 at 8 p.m. (Photo credit: Edison Graff – www.stardustfallout.com).
Tickets start at $73, plus any additional service fees. One of modern metal’s top bands Mastodon joins Priest at the intimate venue.
Redeemer of Souls also went on to become one of the most critically acclaimed releases of the band’s career, with Rolling Stone stating, “Above all, ‘Redeemer’ is proof that Priest can still call themselves metal’s defenders of the faith,” while Revolver Magazine offered further praise, “Thus rejuvenated and recharged, the Metal Gods have delivered their strongest record in over a decade.”
Comprised of Rob Halford (vocals), Glenn Tipton (guitar), Richie Faulkner (guitar), Ian Hill (bass) and Scott Travis (drums), Judas Priest is responsible for some of heavy metal’s all-time classic anthems including “Living After Midnight,” “Breaking the Law,” and “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming,” as well as albums British Steel, Screaming for Vengeance and Painkiller.
Ever since the release of Redeemer of Souls, Judas Priest has been taking their music all over the world and they are not finished yet, with the announcement of these new dates which kick off in October.
Doors at The Pearl will open at 7 p.m. and show time is 8 p.m. The Pearl Box Office is open daily from noon until 7 p.m. with extended hours on select event days.
