Mohegan Sun Arena helps to celebrate 50 Years of Metal on October 19 2022. By Ryan O’Malley

Rob Halford and company rode into the Keystone state showing everyone why fifty years into Judas Priest they still have it.

Queensryche opened the show with an eight song set after walking out onstage to Pantera’s “Walk.”

Judas Priest came out next taking to the stage after Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” played through the system. They unfurled a set illustrating why they are heavy metal rock royalty. This show brought everything you would want out of a Judas Priest show, from explosions to props to Halford changing battle jackets every other song to him riding onstage on a motorcycle.
