Rob Halford took to social media to thank fans who have already received the COVID-19 vaccine and to urge those who have not yet gotten the vaccine to do so.

In the Instagram video below, The Metal God says, “This is your metal god, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, sending you a massive shoutout of thanks to our metal community for doing the right thing by getting the life-saving vaccine that will eventually eradicate COVID-19 around the world.”

Halford continued, “One thing we’re proud about in metal is that we not only stand together united for our music, but also for each other. Common sense states that by having the jab, we’re opening up one of the most important areas that we have so desperately missed, which is being side by side, horns way up at clubs, theaters, arenas and festivals where who we are and what we live for is tangible and real with the bands we love. So let’s get those amazing vibes and feelings back faster.”

Halford concluded, “I urge those who have not yet been vaccinated to please step up. Judas Priest and all bands everywhere are made complete by playing live for our fans. You can learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines at”
