Setlists

The tour featured material from Redeemer of Souls for the first time. It also coincided with the 30th anniversary of the release of Defenders of the Faith and so the band played a number of songs from that album that hadn't been played since the mid-1980s.

26 February 2015: "The Hellion/Electric Eye" and "Painkiller" were added for the further legs of the tour. Shortly they removed "Defender Of The Faith" from the set. 26 June 2015: "Love Bites" and "March Of The Damned" was removed from the set. 16 October 2015: "Desert Plains", "The Rage" and "Screaming for Vengeance" (not played since 1986) were added, "Devil's Child" and "Jawbreaker" were removed from the set.

Support

For the first American leg, Judas Priest choose glam rock band, Steel Panther, to play with them. Their guitar player, Russ Parrish, had previously worked with Rob Halford in the 1990s in the band Fight.

Other bands that supported Judas Priest include:

  1. Motörhead (5 May 2015 in Santiago, Chile);
  2. Def Leppard (2 June 2015 in Oslo, Norway);
  3. Five Finger Death Punch (8 dates in Europe – France, Finland, Luxembourg, Germany, Poland and Czech Republic);
  4. Accept (22 April 2015 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil);
  5. DragonForce (2 dates in Australia at February 2015);
  6. Michael Schenker's Temple Of Rock (6 dates in the United Kingdom, between November and December 2015);
