A Judas Priest concert without leather and studs??? According to Blabbermouth — that’s just what fans got at the band’s May 31st European tour kick off at Berlin, Germany’s 1,600-capacity Huxleys Neue Welt.

Priest Richie Faulkner  guitarist posted a message to fans on social media, which read:

Last night in berlin was glorious and something I’ve never done with the band before. No leather, no studs. No screens, no motorbike. No massive light show or inflatable Birmingham bull. Exposed speakers, just jeans, t-shirts, a small club and it was all purely about the music. All of us together and the raw power of the music. It was truly a great experience and one I’d love to do again sometime.

It’s great when you strip it all back to what it’s all about, the music and the people of our great heavy metal community. Thank you all for making it such a special night.
