Judas Priest

With the seemingly never-ending flood of band reunions we've been getting recently, it's nice to see a group who know when enough is enough. Judas Priest rank as one of the most influential heavy metal acts of all time, but in 2010 they announced that their coming world tour would be their last. Some might say it's about time, too: original guitarist K. K. Downing retired last year, leaving bassist Ian Hill as the only founder member (though he's nearly matched in pedigree by axe-slinger Glenn Tipton and charismatic vocalist Rob Halford). And though Judas Priest haven't gone so far as to say they're splitting up, this might be the last chance that Tokyo audiences get to see them in the flesh. Consider yourselves warned.
