Judas Priest Working On Farewell Tour Live DVD

Just a few weeks ago, Judas Priest played the final show of their "Epitaph" world tour. The band's year-long farewell trek kicked off last June in Holland, and has played around the globe. Epitaph saw the introduction of guitarist Richie Faulkner to the Priest fold, following the sudden retirement of Kenneth "K.K." Downing just six weeks before the tour's launch. The final "Epitaph" show - at the Hammersmith Apollo in London - was professionally filmed for a 2013 DVD release. The work on the project has already begun, according to Faulkner. "Had a sneaky listen to the recording of the Hammersmith show with [producer] Tom Allom. Rearrange these words: Face your off it's tear gonna," posted Faulkner on his Facebook page. Thanks for the report to HenneMusic.com.

    Well, it's a good thing that Judas Priest isn't done. For those who haven't heard, or for Meg who doesn't know that the bird is the word, Judas Priest isn't done! They're working on a new studio album that's set to release later this year, and they're doing more touring after that. This was just their last WORLD TOUR! So, no sad faces!!!

    Why is this so hard for people to understand? Oh wait, misleading headline titles might be a contibuting factor..... It's quite simple...

Any more smaller tours would be on an if-they-come-up basis. They've got one new album planned (for this or next year probably), and they have no direct plans for retirement after that, it depends how they feel at the time, but given their reaction to Richie joining up, I think there's a pretty good chance of another album after the one being put together now.

How is a "farewell tour" not the last tour? Farewell who? Farewell fans-at-a-concert-in-a-series-that-goes-around-the-globe-ins tead-of-fan-at-a-concert-in-a-small-series? What's the point? For month now I hear "JP quit", then "no they dont", then "they got another disc coming", then "but its gonna be the last and no more tours", *then* "halford is packing in and be replaced once more" etc etc. MAYBE, just saying, they should clarify this.

    This'll be great, I haven't seen much of Richie yet, and I'd love to hear a proper live version of Starbreaker...

    I saw them last year, at Sweden Rock. One of the early shows of the tour if I recall. Richie was seriously awesome! I saw them with K.K. a couple of years back, and I must say that Richie amazed me way more than K.K. Lots of people were giving Richie a hard time, because he "replaced" K.K.. After a few shows, people changed their minds completely. (Also, Starbreaker was definitely one of the best songs that night) In any case, its kinda sad to see the DVD with the name "Farewell" =[
