Watch Judas Priest Play "Night Comes Down" For the First Time in 34 Years

Watch Judas Priest Play "Night Comes Down" For the First Time in 34 Years

During their show Tuesday night, June 5, at the Oslo Spektrum in Oslo, Norway, Judas Priest decided to bring out a deep cut that they hadn’t performed live in a very long time. Deep into their set, the band played “Night Comes Down”—from their 1984 album, Defenders of the Faith—for the first time in 34 years. You can watch the performance above.

This isn’t the first time on the Firepower tour that Judas Priest have resurrected a long-dormant track from deep in their back catalog. Last month, at a show in San Antonio, they played “Tyrant”—a fan favorite from their 1976 album, Sad Wings of Destiny—live for the first time in 35 years.

Judas Priest are currently on the European leg of their Firepower tour. Later this summer though, they will return to the United States for a co-headlining trek with Deep Purple. You can check out the dates for that tour below.
