JudasPriestGroup.jog Judas Priest, the heavy metal legends whose influence on generations of musicians and metalheads is incalculable, celebrate their 40th year as recording artists with the global cinema release of the live concert Epitaph. A unique live career retrospective, Epitaph will be shown at two very special cinema events — one in New York at the Clearview Chelsea on May 14th and the other at London’s Forum in Kentish Town on May 15th. It will then be released in cinemas on May 16th across the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Spain, Bulgaria, Estonia, Romania, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Central America, with many more to follow. Fans will have a limited opportunity to re-live the excitement of the final show of the band’s last-ever world tour, which was filmed at the Hammersmith Apollo London in May 2012.

Cinema locations and ticket purchasing information can be found at JudasPriest.com.

Says the band, “The Epitaph world tour came to an exciting conclusion at the renowned Hammersmith Odeon (now known as the Apollo) in London. Knowing our fans around the planet recognize that venue for many legendary metal moments, and of course with Judas Priest being a British metal band it was the perfect gig for us to film and record. Big thanks as always to you our metal family of fans — so start banging your heads one more time with us as we scream together ‘The Priest is back!'”

A unique live career retrospective, Epitaph will be made available on Blu-ray and separate DVD on May 28th through Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. This release precedes a new studio album by Judas Priest which the band are working on now.
