Judas Priest are creating their first conceptual album based upon the life and predictions of Nostradamus. This album will be theatrically staged and performed in its entirity as an epic musical by Judas Priest.

Judas Priest took the Royal Albert Hall in London by storm on Friday night with the Scorpions, Ian Gillan & Friends and Boned, all in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust. The show was a tribute to Tommy Vance ("Friday Rock Show"), who passed away last year. Photos from the show have been posted on the official Judas Priest website.

OK, enough with the ASCII art, sevenchurches. ASCII art works vest with a fixed-width font anyway, which this isn't.
