Judas Priest, also put out their 18th studio albumFirepower, this past March. It reached Number Five on the Billboard 200, making it the band’s highest U.S. chart placement to date in the United States. The band is currently touring with guitarist, Andy Sneap, who replaced longtime guitarist, Glenn Tipton, who parted ways with the band due to his battle with Parkinson’s Disease. Despite the announcement, Tipton rejoined the band during a New Jersey concert, playing three encore songs to end the night.
