Judas Priest will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame via the Musical Excellence Award this year (as opposed to the standard Performers Award) as their current lineup plus former guitarist K.K. Downing and former drummers Les Binks and Dave Holland. And now, for the first time since his departure in 2011, Downing has confirmed he'll perform with Judas Priest at the ceremony.

Downing said in an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock he's feeling pretty confident about the performance (obviously), and hopes it'll make fans happy.

"I think we've probably got eight or nine minutes. I'm not even going to be able to break a sweat. The main thing is to represent the attitude and hopefully the legend of what Judas Priest is and has become and what it means to everybody who's been on that very long journey through the decades with the band. And hopefully it will just kind of remind people and bring back some cherished memories of the heavy metal parking lots all around the world."

In a previous interview with 107.7 RKR, drummer Scott Travis discussed the medley saying it'll contain a bunch of classics in a short time.

"They give you a limited amount of time 'cause there's obviously lots of artists that are gonna be performing. So they gave us a set amount of time to perform. And we decided we're gonna try and work in a medley and do some of the Priest classics and put 'em all into a medley, which we've never done before. So it should be interesting."
