Classic DVD Review: Judas Priest | Live in London

The metal gods and their new singer deliver the goods in a high-energy 1991 show.

This came out in 2003 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):


You know what they say: You can’t teach old gods new tricks. Not even metal gods like Judas Priest.

Then again, when they can still pull off the old tricks as well as the lads do on this live disc, who’s going to complain? Certainly not Priest fans, who will savour every second of this well-shot, excellently produced 134-minute set, which sees new vocalist Tim (Ripper) Owens — the fella that Rock Star movie was based on — leading the rest of the Priest pack through a high-energy 1991 show studded with old favourites like Breaking The Law, Turbo Lover, Electric Eye, Living After Midnight, Hell Bent For Leather and the castrati classic Victim Of Changes. Extras include a documentary, soundcheck cuts and lots backstage footage. Even better, none of it includes Mark Wahlberg.
