Rob has also confirmed working on his memoir, despite previously saying that he would never write one.
“I think Judas Priest has had a very interesting life,” Halford tells Stuff ahead of the band’s visit to Auckland for a one-off show on March 16. “We’ve certainly got some stories to tell. We’ve certainly had a lot of incidents on the road that’s for sure,” he adds, also pointing to the similarities between himself and Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

“I also had to hide a gay guy like Freddie for all those years,” says the now 67-year-old Halford who only publicly revealed his homosexuality in 1998. “It’s a wonderful moment when you walk out of the closet,” he told LGBT magazine. “Now I’ve done that and I’ve freed myself. It’s a great feeling for me to finally let go and make this statement.”
