The legendary Judas Priest returned to The Joint this past weekend along with Uriah Heep, wrapping up their North American tour.

Uriah Heep.

ZRockR hasn’t covered Uriah Heep’s performances since 2015! Seeing these guys on stage again was definitely a joy, and a great start to the evening.

While the set may not have been the longest, it was still a treat. If you get the chance to see more than 9 songs from the band, do!

If you don’t know who Judas Priest is, wow. You need to study! Check out a history of the band and some songs HERE! This is one band that really does not need an introduction.

The band kicked off the show with “Necromancer” off of their 2018 release, Firepower. This was not a setlist comprised of nothing but the new though. The band of course delivered hits like “Hell Bent for Leather” and “Heading Out to the Highway”.

As always, Rob Halford and the band delivered one hell of a show.
