Previous this yr, Judas Priest after all had their identify known as for the Rock and Roll Corridor of Reputation, however they're going in as recipients of the Musical Excellence Award. Whilst there are normally song performances related to the ones incomes induction via the Rock Corridor's balloting frame, it is not as transparent the place the ones receiving the particular honors are involved, however due to drummer Scott Travis, we now know that Priest are making plans a efficiency.
Travis was once a visitor at the Rocker Morning Display with Mark Frankhouse for 107.7 RKR in Kalamazoo, Michigan (heard under), the place he mentioned the impending induction rite.
“Naturally, it is a tremendous honor. I all the time felt that Priest would get in ultimately, simplest as a result of you'll't have one thing known as the Rock and Roll Corridor of Reputation and now not have Judas Priest in it. So there have been a few occasions previous to this yr the place we had been nominated — I feel that is the proper phrase; I am not positive — however we had been within the operating. And we did not slightly get in, however I used to be all the time assured,” says Travis. “Priest gets in ultimately, and similar factor with one of the crucial bands that don't seem to be in but — they'll get in. However yeah, it is a tremendous honor. And there is not anything else you'll say about it, actually. It is lovely cool.”
As for whether or not or now not we will see a musical illustration, Travis divulged, “Yeah, we're. They provide you with a restricted period of time ‘purpose there is clearly a lot of artists which might be gonna be acting. In order that they gave us a suite period of time to accomplish. And we determined we are gonna attempt to paintings in a medley and do one of the crucial Priest classics and put ’em all right into a medley, which we've got by no means achieved ahead of. So it must be fascinating.”
Priest will move into the Rock Corridor on Nov. 5, becoming a member of their fellow inductees on the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
