Holy shit, Rob Halford of Judas Priest is 70 years old. While I imagine myself relaxing on a couch and watching some horrible TV show when I’m a septuagenarian, Halford is pacing on Charlotte’s biggest stage, the PNC Music Pavilion, pacing back and forth, belting out song after song in his iconic heavy metal screech.
Celebrating 50 years of heavy metal music, Judas Priest is out on tour with Swedish metal outfit Sabaton, a band that focuses on military history in its lyrics and incorporates a bit of theatrics in its live show, including drums set up on a tank. Combined, it was a fantastic one-two punch for Queen City metal fans.
