Judas Priest was formed in Birmingham, England in 1970 and completely changed the landscape of heavy metal music. Albums such as "Sad Wings of Destiny" (1976), "Sin After Sin" (1977), and "Hell Bent for Leather" (1978) are considered seminal works in the heavy metal genre.

Earlier this year, Judas Priest was finally announced for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 2022 class, despite being eligible for 25 years. Both their fans and their peers felt the honor was insultingly overdue. The induction ceremony is set to take place on November 5th in Los Angeles, just a few weeks after their Albany gig.

Priest members Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, Ian Hill and Scott Travis will be on hand for the ceremony.
