Judas Priest Kicks Off Their “Firepower” World Tour, Perform Three New Songs Live


Judas Priest kicked off their “Firepower” world tour last night in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, and put on one hell of a show. The concert marked the band’s first performance without Glenn Tipton, as he’s retired from the road, but producer Andy Sneap did a solid job of filling in for the legend, and the set list was AMAZING. Not only did they perform three new tracks live, but they also performed songs like ‘Bloodstone’, ‘Some Heads Are Gonna Roll’ and ‘Running Wild’ live for the first time in years. Check out the full set list and fan footage from the first night below!

Set list: “Firepower”, “Running Wild”, “Grinder”, “Sinner”, “The Ripper”, “Lightning Strike”, “Bloodstone”, “Saints in Hell”, “Turbo Lover”, “Angel”, “Evil Never Dies”, “Some Heads Are Gonna Roll”, “Breaking the Law”, “Hell Bent for Leather”, “Painkiller”, “The Hellion”, “Electric Eye”, “Metal Gods”, “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin'”, “Living After Midnight”
