Rising in the East is a live DVD of Judas Priest performing a concert in Tokyo's Nippon Budokan, filmed in May 2005.


Heavy metal icons Judas Priest released the live DVD 'Rising In the East' on 15 November 2005, via Rhino Home Video.

Vocalist Rob Halford, lead guitarists Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing, bass guitarist Ian Hill and drummer Scott Travis filmed 'Rising In The East' in May 2005 at the legendary Budokan in Tokyo, Japan. The definitive Judas Priest line-up played two sold-out nights at the venue to promote the early 2005 release of the critically acclaimed studio album Angel of Retribution, their first new material in 15 years. 'Rising In The East' is Judas Priest's first straight-to-DVD release.

"We talked about doing a DVD on this tour, and we decided to do it at the Budokan...because it's a special venue. It's world renowned. We thought it was an ideal choice," says Tipton. "We filmed both nights, but we ended up using the second night only for this DVD. We wanted it to be as live and as real as possible, and when you start taking from different shows, there isn't continuity. We wanted it to be one show, and that's exactly what it is."
