JUDAS PRIEST are “amped” to be nominated for Induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, even if it is for the third time.
JUDAS PRIEST were previously up for induction in 2020 and in 2018, however failed to make it to the final list of honorees.
This past Wednesday (February 2), it was announced that JUDAS PRIEST were on the list of nominees for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’s class of 2022. The full list of inductees will be announced in May with the ceremony taking place in the fall. The date, venue, and on-sale information are still to be announced.
Within hours of yesterday’s announcement, JUDAS PRIEST wrote on their social media: “We are amped to be nominated for the 2022 RRHOF!
“You can vote every day at https://vote.rockhall.com/ until April 29th.
“Voting is capped at one ballot, per day. #RockHall2022”.
JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford also released a video message earlier today in which he said: “Hello heavy metal maniacs. As JUDAS PRIEST continues to celebrate our ongoing 50th anniversary, we’re absolutely thrilled and stoked and amped to be nominated for the 2022 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. And so we know you, our beautiful heavy metal maniacs from all around the world, will dominate the daily voting that goes on from now until April the 29th and get some more heavy metal into the hallowed halls of fame. Oh, yeah!”
For JUDAS PRIEST, those who would be inducted include members Halford, Ian Hill (bass), Glenn Tipton (guitar) and Scott Travis (drums), along with former members K.K. Downing (guitar), Les Binks (drums) and late drummer Dave Holland.
We are amped for this 2022 RRHOF nomination and we know our Metal Maniacs will dominate daily online voting till April 29th to forge more Heavy Metal into the hallowed halls!
