While everyone in Dallas is going gagaover Ozzfest
(and everyone outside of Texas isthrowing a shit-fit
), somehow people are overlooking that Judas Priest -- yeah, Judas Fucking Priest -- is coming to town around the same time. And it's not just Rob Halford and Co., but alsoone of my favorites, Motorhead
. Tickets aren't on sale yet for the August 22 show at Superpages.com Center, which also features Testament. That's not stopping us from getting excited. I came across a video of Judas Priest playing Dallas back in 1986. See it after the jump. Flashback and mark the show down on the calendar. --Chelsea Ide
