Watch Judas Priest and Steel Panther Jam on ‘Living After Midnight’
As you can see in the fan-filmed clip above, they took the stage together during their tour-concluding Nov. 22 stop in Tacoma, WA, with the Steel Panther guys joining Priest for a rendition of 'Living After Midnight.' The respect the support act has for its headliner has been obvious throughout their run of fall dates; as Steel Panther's guitarist jokingly told the crowd at their Pittsburgh stop, "Judas Priest has sold 50 million records. We have 50,000 YouTube views! Judas Priest has one of the greatest metal singers in the world. We have the greatest metal singer we could find ... on Facebook!"
The tour found both bands promoting successful recent releases: Steel Panther's latest effort, 'All You Can Eat,' broke the Top 40 after its April arrival, while Priest notched a No. 6 debut with its new LP, 'Redeemer of Souls,' in July.
Both bands are already busy with subsequent projects, too; Steel Panther just put out a new Christmas single, the decidedly NSFW 'The Stocking Song,' while Priest -- as previously reported -- is prepping a triple-disc expanded edition of their 1984 classic 'Defenders of the Faith,' due out March 10, 2015. Currently enjoying a brief hiatus from the road, Judas Priest will begin the next leg of its tour in late February, when the band travels to Australia before playing a brief string of dates in Japan.
