9 San Antonio Concerts We Can't Wait for in 2018

OK, but where has this year gone? Wasn't it just Fiesta? Time sure does fly when you're having fun. If you've been following our reviews of shows (or actually attending these events) happening in the Alamo City, you know that we definitely know how to party and rock out to some amazing live acts. But even for us, 2018 is already looking INSANE y'all. Tickets for most of these shows are already on sale, and you're definitely not gonna want to miss these concerts.

Judas Priest
Tuesday, May 1

Sound the alarm, San Antonio. A metal band from the past is coming to town and it’s none other than “Breaking The Law” boys Judas Priest. This spring the Firepower 2018 Tour will make its final stop at the Freeman Coliseum in support of an album Firepower, which is due early next year. The tour will feature the line-up of singer Rob Halford, guitarists Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner, bassist Ian Hill, and drummer Scott Travis. Even though this tour is like 5 months out, it might be a good idea to get your tickets early since we seem to, as a city, turn up for old school metal. Also, Halford might actually be the original gay leather daddy. $47.50-$127.50, Freeman Coliseum, 3201 E. Houston Street, (210) 226-1177, freemancoliseum.com.
