Judas Priest fans are in for a special treat as the metal gods will be playing their classic 1980 album British Steel in its entirety for the first time ever on stage.

“The opportunity to perform live on stage in its entirety the whole of British Steel is a dream come true for all of us! We’re really excited and looking forward to presenting the album live on stage – fans will be able to enjoy a taste of true heavy metal when it was in its early, raw state!” bandmembers said in a statement. “Plus, we will of course be throwing in a few other Priest classics!”
