JUDAS PRIEST had steadily been building a worldwide audience for eight long years when the 1982 album 'Screaming For Vengeance' exploded and became a smash commercial and critical hit. The mainstream had finally caught on and realized what die-hard fans had known all along: Nobody rocked harder or better than the British heavy metal quintet. The single ‘You've Got Another Thing Comin' was embraced by radio and the music video earned heavy rotation on MTV.

Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings will release the DVD 'Live Vengeance '82' on April 4, 2006. It was previously only available on DVD as a limited-edition bonus disc with the first pressings of Judas Priest's career-spanning box set 'Metalogy' in 2004. This performance, filmed during the arena-packing 'Screaming For Vengeance' world tour on December 12, 1982, at Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis, Tennessee, was first released on home video in 1983 as 'Judas Priest - Live'. It had been out of print for many years before its brief inclusion as part of 'Metalogy'.

Vocalist Rob Halford, lead guitarists Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing and bass guitarist Ian Hill lead JUDAS PRIEST through a fiery set comprised of classics from previous albums such as 'Sad Wings Of Destiny', 'Sin After Sin', 'Hell Bent For Leather', 'British Steel' and 'Point Of Entry' as well as the cream of 'Screaming For Vengeance'.

The 17 tracks on 'Live Vengeance '82' include: 'The Hellion/Electric Eye', 'Riding On The Wind', 'Heading Out To The Highway', 'Metal Gods', 'Bloodstone', 'Breaking The Law', 'Sinner', 'Desert Plains', 'The Ripper', 'Diamonds And Rust', 'Devil's Child', 'Screaming For Vengeance', 'You've Got Another Thing Comin',' 'Victim Of Changes', 'Living After Midnight', 'The Green Manalishi (With The Two-Pronged Crown)' and 'Hell Bent For Leather'.

The 'Live Vengeance '82' audio is mastered in both stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound mixes.
