Musicians Institute Conversation Series will welcome JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford on Friday, August 5 at 8:00 p.m.

Halford, known by fans worldwide as The Metal God, has one of the most recognizable voices in heavy metal, as heard in JUDAS PRIEST classics like “Breaking The Law”, “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming”, “Electric Eye” and one of the most powerful anthems ever recorded, “Painkiller”.

Over the course of a diverse career, he’s also fronted FIGHT, TWO (on Trent Reznor‘s Nothing Records) and, of course, HALFORD. PRIEST remains as vital of a force as ever, with career-best chart debuts, a Grammy and sold-out tours all part of their recent history.

Halford will take the stage with Alternative Press senior editor Ryan J. Downey (MTV News, Billboard, The Hollywood Reporter) for a wide-ranging question-and-answer session about Halford‘s illustrious career as “The Metal God.”

JUDAS PRIEST‘s latest album, “Redeemer Of Souls”, was released in July 2014. The follow-up to 2008’s double-disc concept album “Nostradamus” was billed as a return to JUDAS PRIEST‘s heavy-metal roots.
