Judas Priest Announce Rescheduled 50th Anniversary Tour Dates

Heavy metal icons Judas Priest have announced the rescheduled dates for their 50th anniversary tour.

The North American tour, called the “50 Heavy Metal Years Tour,” will begin on September 8 in Reading, Pennsylvania, and wrap up on November 5 in Hamilton, Ontario.

Swedish power-metal band Sabaton will join Judas Priest as openers.

“Defending the heavy metal faith for 50 years, the Priest is back,” said Judas Priest lead vocalist Rob Halford.

“Time to don the leather and studs and roll out the Priest Machine — celebrating our 50 Heavy Metal Years,” added lead guitarist Glenn Tipton.

“After the horrific year of restrictions we’ve all had to endure, what better place to break free, than the land of the free — the USA,” said bassist Ian Hill.

Tickets are available at Ticketmaster beginning Friday.
