Judas Priest Portland OR Tickets
The heavy metal rockers Judas Priest have great things in store for them in 2018. For one, they have been nominated for the 2018 Hall of Fame induction for a fourth time, and band lead Rob Halford has high hopes that this year “the metal dog will wag its tale”. Meanwhile, the band is also working towards the release of their eighteenth album “Firepower” which is due for release in early 2018. Right after this album has reached everywhere, Judas Priest will embark on a North American tour which will last well into the year. Judas Priest Portland OR tickets are already being bought for the band’s April visit to the Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
Transition to Softer Metal
The band’s style is and has always been geared towards heavy metal music. They experiment with the style, often infusing other influences and genres in it as well such as blues rock. In the early 70s, Priest’s style was progressive, with a lot of focus on guitar passages and complex lyrics. However, with their album “Killing Machine” the band shifted gears and began incorporating commercial and pop sounds in their songs as well. This allowed for their new music to gain radio-time and began gaining them a widespread fan base. Their records after this point had simpler lyrics with fixed choruses and more people were able to sing along to the band’s songs. In fact, their songs in 2001 also have elements of nu-metal in them, which have been received positively by fans.
Judas Priest Fashion
The band has been one of the forerunners in the heavy metal world. They have also impacted fashion, by selling their own merchandise and created the macho, biking heavy metal look. It is a look that has been adapted by thousands of men over the years and it is all owed to Judas Priest front man Rob Halford.
Judas’ Priest’s 2018 live shows have been announced for a number of North American destinations. The tour is in support of their to-be-released eighteenth album “Firepower”. Fans are already purchasing Judas Priest Portland OR tickets for the April show at the Portland Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
