“Pop “retirements” prove to be about as reliable as political promises.

Witness the “just kidding, folks” resurrections of briefly absent stars Barbra Streisand, David Bowie and Cher.

So fans might be forgiven for rolling their eyes over Judas Priest’s announcement some months back that their current road show… would be their “final” one.

“I wish we had a better word than final,” says Priest singer Rob Halford. “It’s not the end of the band but it is a farewell to these gigantic world tours.”

In fact, Halford says they’ll be back in the States for limited runs, and will record again. And so, it seems, they’ll do nearly everything they ever did, just somewhat less of it.

“We’ve been reflecting on what’s left to do and how best to do it,” the singer says. “We’re all cognizant of the fact that, while metal forges on, the one thing you can’t hold back is the physical.”-[NY Daily News]

Judas Priest played their not-final NYC area show as part of the Epitaph tour on Friday, 11/18 at Izod Center in NJ with Black Label Society, Thin Lizzy and DJ Lady Starlight. Here are some pictures from that show.

Officially retired or not, Priest was sans founding guitarist K. K. Downing (who has retired, officially and was replaced by Richie Faulkner), so unfortunately the last chance to catch KK/Tipton/Halford/Hill passed with their last tour.
