Judas Priest To Perform Medley Of Classics During Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony

Judas Priest drummer Scott Travis has confirmed that the band are planning to perform a medley of classics when they get inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame later this year. That ceremony is currently scheduled to take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA on November 5.

Travis said the following about the group’s induction during an appearance on the “Rocker Morning Show“:

“Naturally, it’s a super honor. I always felt that Priest would get in eventually, only because you can’t have something called the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and not have Judas Priest in it. So there were a couple of events prior to this year where we were nominated — I think that’s the right word; I’m not sure — but we were in the running. And we didn’t quite get in, but I was always confident. Priest will get in eventually, and same thing with some of the bands that aren’t in yet — they will get in. But yeah, it’s a super honor. And there’s nothing else you can say about it, really. It’s pretty cool.”

He also added the following about their plans to perform during the event:

“…They give you a limited amount of time ’cause there’s obviously lots of artists that are gonna be performing. So they gave us a set amount of time to perform. And we decided we’re gonna try and work in a medley and do some of the Priest classics and put ’em all into a medley, which we’ve never done before. So it should be interesting.”
