JUDAS PRIEST Are Being Inducted Into The ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME

judas-priest-2022

JUDAS PRIEST will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame as the British heavy metal legends will receive the Musical Excellence Award at this year’s event.

This year’s ceremony will honor Eminem, Dolly Parton, DURAN DURAN, Lionel Richie, Pat Benatar, EURYTHMICS and Carly Simon in the Performers category.

The award for Musical Excellence — which was originally titled the “sidemen” category — is given to artists, musicians, songwriters and producers whose originality and influence have had a dramatic impact on music.

JUDAS PRIEST are the second band to receive the prestigious award after the E STREET BAND were presented it in 2014. Last year, late OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist Randy Rhoads was one of the recipients of the Musical Excellence Award.

“Wow, this is so exciting — at last. At last, you know?” Halford said to Billboard after receiving the news. “And, glory hallelujah, there’s another metal band in the Hall Of Fame! That’s the blessing we’ve all been waiting for.”

This year’s induction ceremony will take place on November 5, 2022 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. It will air at a later date on HBO and stream on HBO Max.
