Earlier this month, heavy metal pioneers Judas Priest stopped off at Texas’ 12,000-capacity Freeman Coliseum in order to present eighteenth studio album Firepower to the baying American masses. The show forms out part of an expansive world tour, one which will see Rob Halford and co. spend more than two months in Europe this summer before returning to America for a second victory lap mid-August. Ralph Arvesen went down to check out the recent Texas show, which featured special guests Saxon and Black Star Riders.
