Glenn Tipton Performed With Judas Priest In Sweden

Glenn Tipton came out of retirement and shared the stage with Judas Priest at the Sweden Rock Festival in Solvesborg on June 9, to perform “Metal Gods,” “Breaking The Law” and “Living After Midnight.” The guitarist had announced his retirement from the road earlier this year, after a diagnosis revealed he was suffering from Parkinson’s Disease. Tipton had played these three songs with the band at several stops during their U.S. tour. Tipton told BUILD Series, “It’s just amazing to get, first of all, support from the band. The texts and e-mails from all over world, and to hear the audience was very emotional. You don’t like to see a grown man cry, but we did.” When asked about whether he would make more live appearances during the band’s tour in support of their 18th album, Firepower, the guitarist told 105.7 WAPL, “I think so, yeah. As long as I’m capable of going on stage and doing my parts and doing it well. I love it – I love to be on stage with PRIEST, and I’ll do it for as long as I can.” Copyright(c) 2018 All Rights ReservedLess «
