Iconic heavy metal band Judas Priest has announced their rescheduled “50 Heavy Metal Years” tour dates. Digital Journal has the scoop.

This tour, produced by Live Nation, will also feature Sabaton as the opening act, and it is being fueled by the highest-charting album of Priest’s career, “Firepower,” which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 charts. The album garnered a favorable review from Digital Journal.

The “50 Heavy Metal Years Tour” will kick off on September 8 in Reading, Pennsylvania, and it will wrap up on November 5 in Hamilton, Ontario.

Lead singer Rob Halford exclaimed in a press statement, “Defending the heavy metal faith for 50 years, the Priest is back.”

Judas Priest has received two nominations for the coveted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017 and 2019 respectively.
