Judas Priest’s Rob Halford is urging metal fans to get out and get vaccinated. Taking to Instagram via video, he thanked the metal community for getting the jab and encouraged those who haven’t to get it done.
He’s of course pointing to the return of live music.
“Hi everyone,” begins Rob Halford.
“This is your metal god, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, sending you a massive shoutout of thanks to our metal community for doing the right thing by getting the life-saving vaccine that will eventually eradicate COVID-19 around the world.”
“One thing we’re proud about in metal,” he continues. “Is that we not only stand together united for our music but also for each other.”
“You know, common sense states that by having the jab, we’re opening up one of the most important areas that we have so desperately missed.
“Which is being side by side, horns way up at clubs, theatres, arenas and festivals.
“Where who we are and what we live for is tangible and real with the bands we love. So let’s get those amazing vibes and feelings back faster,” says Halford.
“I urge those of us who have not yet been vaccinated to please step up. Judas Priest and all bands everywhere are made complete by playing live for our fans.”
