One of heavy metal’s all-time greats, Judas Priest, will get the opportunity to celebrate their 50th anniversary again this year with the launch of a new North American fall tour. The 50 Heavy Metal Years Tour will also feature Queensryche as openers and is being fueled by the highest charting album of Priest’s career, ‘Firepower,’ which peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200.
The tour will include a performance at the ASM Global managed Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, October 19th, 2022 at 8pm.
Tickets for the October 19th show go on sale Friday, June 24th at 10am at the NBT Bank Box Office at Mohegan Sun Arena, Ticketmaster.com or JudasPriest.com.
Additionally in 2022, Priest band members Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, Ian Hill and Scott Travis will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
“Defending the heavy metal faith for fifty years, the Priest is back!” – Rob Halford
“Time to don the leather and studs and roll out the Priest Machine – celebrating our 50 Heavy Metal Years!!” – Glenn Tipton
“After the horrific last few years of restrictions we’ve all had to endure, what better place to break free, than the land of the free – the USA!” – Ian Hill
Judas Priest originally formed in 1970 in Birmingham, England (an area that many feel birthed heavy metal). The original nucleus of musicians would go on to change the face of heavy metal. Throughout the 70’s Priest were responsible for helping trail blaze metal with such classic offerings as ‘Sad Wings of Destiny’ (1976) ‘Sin After Sin’ (1977) and ‘Hell Bent for Leather’ (1978) as well as one of the genre’s top live recordings ‘Unleashed in the East’ (1979) among others.
It was during the 80’s that Priest conquered the world, becoming a global arena headliner on the strength of such all-time classics as ‘British Steel’ (1980) and ‘Screaming for Vengeance’ (1982), as well as being one of the first metal bands to be embraced by the then-burgeoning MTV, plus performing at some of the decades biggest concerts (1980’s Monsters of Rock, 1983’s US Festival, and 1985’s Live Aid) and being the first to exclusively wear leather and studs – a look that began during this era and would eventually be embraced by metal heads throughout the world. Priest’s success continued throughout the 90’s and beyond with the addition of drummer Scott Travis, as evidenced by such additional stellar offerings as ‘Painkiller’ (1990) ‘Angel of Retribution’ (2005) and ‘A Touch of Evil: Live’ (2009) the latter of which saw Priest win a Grammy Award for a killer rendition of the classic ‘Dissident Aggressor’.
In 2011 new guitarist Richie Faulkner came in to replace the previous guitarist who had left in 2010 – the move seemed to have reinvigorated the band, as evidenced by a show-stealing performance on the ‘American Idol’ TV program that also served as Faulkner’s debut performance with the band (also in 2011 was the release of a new compilation ‘The Chosen Few’ which included Priest classics selected by some of metal’s biggest names) and the ‘Epitaph’ concert DVD in 2013.
Priest’s next studio effort would arrive in 2014 ‘Redeemer of Souls’ which was supported by another strong tour. In 2018, Priest unleashed their latest studio album ‘Firepower’ (produced by Andy Sneap and Tom Allom) which received global success and critical acclaim. In 2020, a fully official and authorized photographic book, ‘Judas Priest: 50 Heavy Metal Years,’ was issued, followed in 2021 by the 42-CD box set, ‘Judas Priest: 50 Heavy Metal Years of Music.’
Few rock or metal acts remain as much of a must-see live attraction as Judas Priest.

A leader in education, workforce development, volunteer service, and public policy over the last four decades, Thomas P. Foley, J.D., current president of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Pennsylvania (AICUP), an association of more than 90 independent, nonprofit colleges and universities in Pennsylvania, will address graduates at Marywood University’s commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 14, 2022, 1 p.m., at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre, PA.
One of 12 siblings and the grandson of Irish immigrants, Foley is a first-generation college graduate, who merited scholarships from Dartmouth College, University College in Dublin, Ireland, and Yale Law School, where he earned his Juris Doctorate. While on leave from Yale, he spent two years as a full-time volunteer with the Nobel Prize winning Peace People in Belfast, Northern Ireland, at the height of that country’s Troubles. He co-founded the non-partisan Committee on the Administration of Justice and continued to volunteer, work, and write on those issues for the next 30 years.
He was the youngest Secretary of Labor and Industry in Pennsylvania history, serving under Governor Robert P. Casey. After that, he joined the U.S. Labor Department, leading efforts on lifelong learning and workplace safety and earning the Secretary’s Award for Exemplary Public Service. As President of the United Way of Pennsylvania, Foley was a key leader in efforts that resulted in the first statewide public investment in preschool education. Currently, he is co-chair of the Governor’s Early Learning Investment Committee.
For nearly a decade before he became president of AICUP, Foley was the president of Mount Aloysius College, Cresson, PA, named by the White House as one of four “Engines of Opportunity” in the nation for its work with low-income students.
Additionally, his professional background includes service in both the executive and legislative branches of the federal government, where he worked for Congressman James Shannon and then-Senator Joseph Biden. He did intensive work in Washington, D.C., on issues involving peace and justice in Northern Ireland and Central America, and he has written on a wide range of public policy topics, including issues on justice, foreign policy, preschool education, sports, workforce development, and Irish history.
Honored for his work in a broad range of fields, Foley was named a Top 100 Irish American in both education and law (one of only two to receive both honors), is the recipient of the Centennial Medal for Service, the Liberty Bell Award, numerous humanitarian awards, and serves as an honorary member of the Philadelphia Fire Department.
