METAL gods Judas Priest are celebrating over 40 years with their last world tour which is heading to South Yorkshire - and we have tickets to be won.

They are taking their very special brand of heavy metal to all four corners of the planet on a massive EPITAPH tour.

It includes Doncaster Dome on Sunday, July 17 at 7.30pm.

They will be playing the songs that helped make the name Judas Priest synonymous with heavy metal, with top 10 hits such as Take On The World, Living After Midnight and Breaking The Law.

Formed in Birmingham in 1968, their popularity and status as one of the definitive heavy metal bands has earned them the nickname Metal Gods, from their song of that name.

They have sold over 50 million albums and were named the second greatest metal band, behind only Black Sabbath, by MTV. Judas Priest’s core line-up consists of lead vocalist Rob Halford, guitarist Glenn Tipton, bassist Ian Hill and drummer Scott Travis.

Best known for their twin lead guitar style and Halford’s wide operatic vocal style, Judas Priest have been cited as an influence on many heavy metal musicians and bands.

Now, with all guns blazing and amps cranked to eleven, the band will be giving fans one last chance to witness the ultimate metal experience.
