ATTENTION ALL METALHEADS: JUDAS PRIEST’S UPCOMING SOUTHERN FLORIDA SHOW WILL BE FILMED FOR A LIVE DVD - NOT TO BE MISSED - TICKETS ON SALE NOW - SO BE THERE!!!!
It is hard to pinpoint when heavy metal history is going to be made. However, an upcoming event will surely be one of the few times you know for sure that it will. Judas Priest will be filming their upcoming August 17th performance at the Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – Hollywood, FL, for a DVD that will be included in a forthcoming expanded 30th Anniversary edition of their 1980 classic, ‘British Steel.’ As with all of their U.S. summer dates this year, Priest has been performing the album in its entirety from front to back. With the band playing the entire ‘British Steel’ repertoire, the August 17th show at the Seminole Hard Rock Arena in Hollywood, Florida (which will be one of the last of this US Summer ’09 tour) will surely capture Priest at their peak!! Not to be missed!!
‘British Steel’ has long been considered one of metal’s all-time classics. It was with this release that Priest truly broke through to the masses, with a pair of tracks that have become fixtures on rock radio - the enduring anthems “Breaking the Law” and “Living After Midnight.” But like all classic albums, there is not a single weak track detected on ‘British Steel,’ as evidenced by such standouts as the perennial concert highlight, “Metal Gods,” as well as “Rapid Fire,” “Grinder,” “United,” and “The Rage,” among others.
Produced by Tom Allom, ‘British Steel’ was recorded at Tittenhurst Park in England - which is a mansion owned at the time by former Beatle Ringo Starr, and previously owned by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. In 2001, the album was remastered and reissued with extra bonus tracks, and also, was the subject of an in-depth study as part of the popular ‘Classic Albums’ DVD series.
So come on out on August 17th and cheer the mighty Priest on as they document on stage an album that has served as the perfect metal summer soundtrack year after year and constantly picks up new converts.........don't miss your chance to be included in this rare DVD footage!!
Tickets for this show are now on sale.
