JUDAS PRIEST CANCEL CONCERT AS THE METAL GOD BATTLES BRONCHITIS
Judas Priest have been forced to cancel their show at the Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs tonight (June 5th) as frontman Rob Halford battles bronchitis.
Halford has been ill for more than a week and has now been told by doctors he needs rest to fully recover before hitting the stage again.
Judas Priest say in a statement, “We are very sorry to say that Rob Halford has been fighting bronchitis for over a week and now doctors have told him he needs full rest so his voice can recover. Therefore Judas Priest’s concert at Broadmoor World Arena, Colorado Springs, has unfortunately been canceled.
We did not want to cancel this show but Rob’s health must come first. We are so sorry to disappoint our fans but the Priest will be back to Colorado Springs at a later date. Until then refunds for all tickets will be available at point of purchase.”
Judas Priest’s next scheduled concert is set for Saturday night when they’ll play at the Sasktel Centre in Saskatoon, Canada.
Halford made the headlines last week when he kicked a phone from a fan’s hands during the band’s set at the Rosemont Theatre, Illinois.
He later issued a statement explaining his actions, by stating, “The facts are we love our fans and you can film us all you like and watch our show on your phone rather than in the flesh.
However, if you physically interfere with the Metal God’s performance, you now know what will happen.”

I hope my hero feels better soon. 🙁
dana, did you ever tell rob he’s your hero?
No, I was far too nervous, when I met him. He was very nice, but I just could not shake my excitement sitting next to him in Eddie’s studio.
He will, after all, he’s made of metal! 😉
I’m seeing him June 17 Dana, so I’ll let you know!
dana, it must have been cold there in his shadow.
Got scared for a second. Thought he was pulling an Ozzy…cya in Portland on the 22nd, Robert!
Dana good pic of Halford the one they use on the other site he’s all grey and he look a lot like some one I work with
