JUDAS PRIEST: Brand-New Interview With IAN HILL To Air This Thursday

An interview with JUDAS PRIEST bassist Ian Hill, conducted last week by Metal Temple magazine editor Orpheus Spiliotopoulos, will air this Thursday, March 2 at 2:00 p.m. EST / 8:00 p.m. CET during Orpheus' (a.k.a. DJ PainKiller) show on Hard Rock Radio Live. To listen to the interview online, go to www.hardrockradiolive.com.

As previously reported, JUDAS PRIEST will be making their only live appearance of 2006 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England on March 31. "This is a special performance in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust charity and is a tribute to Tommy Vance (U.K.'s 'Friday Rock Show') who sadly is no longer with us," reads a posting on PRIEST's web site. Also appearing will be special guests the SCORPIONS and IAN GILLAN & FRIENDS. Opening the show will be an unknown band called BONED, whom Tommy Vance was a great supporter of. Tickets go on sale on February 14. More information is available at www.royalalberthall.com.

JUDAS PRIEST's "Rising in the East" DVD was recently certified gold in the United States by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for shipments in excess of 50,000 copies. The DVD was released in the USA and Canada on November 15, 2005. The disc was filmed in May 2005 at the legendary Budokan in Tokyo, Japan. The definitive JUDAS PRIEST lineup — vocalist Rob Halford, lead guitarists Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing, bass guitarist Ian Hill and drummer Scott Travis — played two sold-out nights at the venue to promote the early-2005 release of the critically acclaimed studio album "Angel of Retribution", their first new material in 15 years. "Rising in the East" is JUDAS PRIEST's first straight-to-DVD release.

Columbia/Legacy has set an April 4, 2006 release date for JUDAS PRIEST's vintage concert DVD "Live Vengeance '82", which was previously only available on DVD as limited-edition bonus with "Metalogy" box set.
