Watch Judas Priest Reunite With K.K. Downing & Les Binks For Rock And Roll Of Fame Induction Performance


British heavy metal legends Judas Priest entered the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame last night (November 05th.) While the outfit’s entry came by way of a ‘Musical Excellence Award’ rather than a traditional induction, the legendary band made the most of their time onstage, performing a medley of some of their most revered tracks.

As they teased prior to the set, the veteran new wave of British heavy metal stars were rejoined by their oft-estranged ex-guitarist K.K. Downing during that set, as well as former drummer Les Binks. The induction ceremony itself took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA, with Duran Duran, Eminem, Dolly Parton and more also making their way into the hall.

Songs performed during the aforementioned medley included “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’“, “Breaking The Law” and “Living After Midnight“. As the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame places limits on the number of members eligible for induction, only a few of the band’s roster was granted entry into the hall.

Among them were current members, vocalist Rob Halford, guitarist Glenn Tipton, bassist Ian Hill and drummer Scott Travis. Both Downing and Binks also made the cut, as did the group’s late drummer, Dave Holland, who passed away in 2018.

While fan-filmed footage of the band’s set has been shared online below, HBO will premiere the official broadcast of last night’s entire induction ceremony on November 19th.
