Judas Priest played a more low-key concert without their leather gear, studs or big stage show

Heavy metal legends Judas Priest kicked off their European tour on 31 May in Berlin, Germany. However, this concert was a little different from what fans are used to seeing from the band.

Priest played the concert without his typical leather clothes, studs or big stage show.

Guitarist Richie Faulkner wrote on social media after the show:

“Last night in Berlin was glorious and something I’ve never done with the band before. No leather, no studs. No screens, no motorbike. No massive light show or inflatable Birmingham bull. Exposed speakers, just jeans, t-shirts, a small club and it was all purely about the music. All of us together and the raw power of the music. It was truly a great experience and one I’d love to do again sometime. It’s great when you strip it all back to what it’s all about, the music and the people of our great heavy metal community. Thank you all for making it such a special night.”
