Judas Priest are back, and on their 50 Heavy Metal Years North American tour with Queensryche as the opener. Both bands performed on March 30. 2022, at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Before Priest hit the stage, a giant metal structure of their symbolic cross rose straight up in a bright red glow with white lights beaming out into the New Jersey crowd. The band would then appear on stage with a background image of a building on fire to start the concert and their massive light show.
