Judas Priest: Izod Center, New Jersey Footage Posted Online

Fan-filmed video footage of Judas Priest's November 18th, 2011 concert at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey can be seen below.

Judas Priest kicked off the North American leg of its "Epitaph" farewell tour on October 12th at AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas (with support from Thin Lizzy and Black Label Society).

Regarding Judas Priest's farewell world tour, singer Rob Halford previously said, "We're pulling out all the stops. We've built a brand new stage set, we've got all the effects that people love us for - the lasers, the fire, the bombs, the smoke, new costumes, and the bike. It's just a full-on metal extravaganza."

As for whether this is really the end of Judas Priest's touring days, guitarist Glenn Tipton said, "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."
