This Day in Metal: August 19th 1991 Rob Halford plays last concert with Judas Priest before returning more than a decade later
It was on This Day in Metal, August 19th 1991 that Judas Priest frontmen would play his last concert with the band before rejoining them in 2003.
The band was in Toronto performing at the C.N.E. with Alice Cooper, Motörhead, Metal Church and Dangerous Toys. The tour was called "Operation Rock & Roll"
During the first song "Hell Bent for Leather", Rob Halford's motorcycle entrance went wrong. He drove his Harley onto the stage, hit a metal beam, broke his nose, sprained his neck and knocked himself unconscious.
He woke up and completed the show, then was taken to a hospital immediately afterward.
Not sure at the time if anybody knew but this was Rob's last concert with the band before embarking on a solo career.
