British heavy metal legends JUDAS PRIEST performed an abbreviated set at Hard Rock Café New York in Times Square Monday night (August 4) as part of syndicated broadcast personality Eddie Trunk's event to celebrate his 25th anniversary in radio broadcasting.
Trunk broadcasts his weekly radio shows, "Friday Night Rocks" on Q104.3 in the New York City listening area and "Eddie Trunk Live" on XM Radio (satellite radio).
The video tribute that was shown as part of the festivities Monday night can be viewed in two parts below. Trunk says, "[the] video tribute was put together by my good friend Erik Luftglass over the last few months and I had no idea! It featured Chris Jericho, Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson, UFO, TESLA, RATT, SABBATH, Dio, Kip Winger, TRIXTER, David Ellefson, JUDAS PRIEST, TRIUMPH, ANTHRAX, TWISTED SISTER, Bret Michaels, QUEENSRŸCHE, DREAM THEATER and many others first taking shots at me in a roast style, then all saying some really amazing things about how they feel about me and congratulating me on the 25 years. Just awesome and I will keep this video as a great memory for life. I can not thank Erik enough for spending hours getting these interviews and putting it all together."
