Judas Priest concert chronology

The British Steel Tour was a 1980 concert tour by British heavy metal band Judas Priest, in support of their most recent release, British Steel. During the UK leg of the tour, they were supported by Iron Maiden. However the band did not perform any of the new songs on the British leg. Instead they performed songs from the previous tour. In the American Leg, "Steeler", "You Don't Have To Be Old To Be Wise", "Grinder" and "Living After Midnight" were performed. The band did, however, perform songs from the latest album at the 1980 Monsters of Rock festival in August at Donington.
