Judas Priest: Sweden Rock 2011 Footage; Press Conference, "Breaking The Law"

All five members of Judas Priest - Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, Ian Hill, Scott Travis, and the band's latest addition, 31-year-old guitaristRichie Faulkner took part in a press conference yesterday (Thursday, June 9) at this year's edition of the Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg in southern Sweden. You can now watch video footage of the 23-minute question-and-answer session below. Also available is performance footage from the Sweden Rock Festivalconcert.

On the band's future plans:

Glenn Tipton: "We don't plan on retiring. We've said that this is our last world tour. It takes a chunk out of your life - 18 months. We won't be doing any more world tours as such and in many parts of the world, it will be the last time people will get a chance to see us. But we're not gonna stop. We've got an album in the can now, we will start to write with Richie, there will be more albums, and who knows?! There might be a string of dates that we can manage to do. We're just not gonna do another major world tour. We've been doing it for 40 years and it's time to let the younger bands have the chance."
