Judas Priest, often hailed as "metal gods," have been trailblazers in the metal scene since their formation in 1969. Known for hits like "Breaking the Law," "You've Got Another Thing Comin'," and "Painkiller," the band continues to dominate the stage with their powerful performances. Rob Halford, the iconic frontman, still delivers with the same intensity and charisma that has captivated fans for over five decades.

The "Invincible Shield" tour promises to be a spectacle of classic metal anthems and new tracks from their latest album, released earlier this year.

The tour also features Swedish power metal band Sabaton as the opening act, setting the stage for an unforgettable night of music.

Having sold over 50 million albums worldwide and earned numerous accolades, including a 2010 Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance, Judas Priest's influence on the genre is undeniable.
