JUDAS PRIEST have posted the following update on their official website:

"No, your eyes did not deceive you the one and only Judas Priest just debuted their new guitarist, Richie Faulkner, tonight on American Idol! Ripping through a medley that included kick ass renditions of two 'British Steel' classics ('Living After Midnight' and 'Breakin' the Law') with major Priest fan and this season 'American Idol' hopeful James Durbin joining in on vocals.

This is the second time that Durbin has professed his admiration for Priest on the show, as he wowed judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, and Steven Tyler a while back with a rendition of 'You've Got Another Thing Comin''. Although Durbin was recently voted off the show, he undoubtedly has a bright rocking future ahead, as evidenced by his multi-octave vocal range.

Judas Priest recently announced plans to launch their farewell Epitaph Tour, which will take them around the world, including a just-announced U.S. tour of arenas from October through December, which will also feature opening acts THIN LIZZY and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY.

Speaking on Wednesday to the Rolling Stone website, Priest singer Rob Halford had the following to say about what fans can expect on the group's forthcoming trek. "We're pulling out all the stops. We've built a brand new stage set, we've got all the effects that people love us for the lasers, the fire, the bombs, the smoke, new costumes, and the bike. It's just a full-on metal extravaganza."
