Prepare to have your eardrums blown away as JUDAS PRIEST joins the already epic Power Trip lineup, sharing the stage with AC/DC on Saturday, October 7
The British heavy metal legends are set to fill the massive slot originally reserved for the one and only Ozzy Osbourne at the iconic Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Brace yourselves for a historic three-day event, taking place on October 6, 7, and 8, that will bring together six titanic bands that define the epitome of loud and powerful music.
Kicking off the madness on Friday, October 6, will be the explosive combination of GUNS N’ ROSES and IRON MAIDEN, delivering an unforgettable double dose of rock ‘n’ roll fury. But hold on tight, because Saturday, October 7, will bring the thunderous presence of AC/DC and the legendary JUDAS PRIEST, ensuring a metal onslaught that will shake the very foundations of the Empire Polo Club. And if that’s not enough to satiate your musical appetite, get ready for the grand finale on Sunday, October 8, with the colossal forces of METALLICA and TOOL colliding in an intense display of sonic mastery.
This is not just any music festival; this is a pilgrimage to the mecca of live music. The Empire Polo Club will become a hallowed ground where the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll will be celebrated by the gods of metal themselves. So mark your calendars, gather your fellow headbangers, and prepare for a weekend that will redefine the meaning of intensity and power. JUDAS PRIEST has entered the arena, joining forces with AC/DC and an array of other legendary bands, making this an event that no true music lover can afford to miss.
JUDAS PRIEST said in a statement: “Power Trippers are you ready for some JUDAS PRIEST-style Heavy Metal…..!! JUDAS PRIEST are primed and proud to fly the flag for Heavy Metal at this prestigious festival…… We are ready to raise double horns way up high together keeping the metal faith at this ‘bostin’ one-of-a-kind Power Trip world event….!”
On Monday, Ozzy canceled his appearance at Power Trip due to his ongoing health issues. In a statement announcing his cancelation, Osbourne said: “My original plan was to return to the stage in the summer of 2024, and when the offer to do this show came in, I optimistically moved forward. Unfortunately, my body is telling me that I’m just not ready yet and I am much too proud to have the first show that I do in nearly five years be half-assed.”
This unique night-time desert setting with unmatched concert production will amplify the experience beyond the traditional stadium or parking lot concert norm with three double-billed headlining performances. This is the most rocking lineup to ever perform in an unparalleled location for heavy music audiences looking for an unforgettable weekend escape.
