Judas Priest will release a special 30th-anniversary edition of their 1982 album, Screaming For Vengeance, on September 4.

This new special edition will contain re-mastered and bonus tracks, plus a live DVD from the May 29, 1983, US Festival show in San Bernadino, California.

The US Festival, which was organized by Steve Wozniak, formerly of Apple Computer, was a celebration of evolving technologies and a marriage of music, computers, television and people. The DVD was filmed during the second (which turned out to be the last) US Festival. This event set the single-day concert attendance record for the US with an estimated 37,000 people.

Judas Priest describe this memorable day in metal history:

"On the day that we performed, we flew in by helicopter -- and the first sight we saw was that of thousands of abandoned cars piled up around the crests of the hills that surrounded the festival arena, which as we went over took our breath away. For there below us, spread throughout hundreds of acres was a massive crowd -- over three hundred thousand strong! The summer heat was raging and combined with the hot Santa Ana winds made for a scorching metal furnace on stage."

Screaming For Vengeance was Judas Priest's eighth studio album; it spawned a massive mainstream hit with "You've Got Another Thing Coming."
