While FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH dominate on a European arena tour, last night ROB HALFORD, legendary frontman for JUDAS PRIEST, joined the rock group on stage surprising fans with a performance of the group’s ‘Lift Me Up,’ a #1 US Active Rock Radio chart hit off the band’s The Wrong Side Of heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell –Volume 1 album.
Watch a clip from last night’s show in front of Halford’s hometown crowd in Birmingham, UK while 5FDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory gives the background on how the song collaboration came about and what it meant to the band to have a metal god like Rob Halford join them on stage:
5FDP–known for their uncompromising musical intensity and razor-sharp lyrics–are currently on an extensive European arena tour with Avenged Sevenfold through early December. Next up, the band will headline the five-day Shiprocked cruise, scheduled to depart from Miami, Florida on January 26th, 2014. 5FDP will then perform at the Bandit Rock Awards in Stockholm, Sweden on March 8th, 2014 to kick off their own headlining European tour next spring.
