The World Vengeance Tour was a 1982 concert tour by British heavy metal band Judas Priest where they toured throughout North America from 26 August 1982 until 21 February 1983 in support of the 1982 album Screaming for Vengeance.

Overview[edit]

The 12 December 1982 show was filmed and released on multiple video formats; first released on VHS, Beta, VHD and LaserDisc as Judas Priest Live in 1983; as Disc 5 as a DVD on the Metalogy compilation box-set in 2004; and as a separate DVD package entitled Live Vengeance '82 in 2006.
