Judas Priest Announce Fall 2022 US Tour Dates
Judas Priest aren't done hot rockin' yet. The Metal Gods have announced another U.S. leg of their 50 Heavy Metal Years tour for October and November with support from Queensryche.
The new tour leg will kick off on Oct. 13 in Wallingford, Conn., and run through Nov. 29 in Houston. You can see the full list of dates below.
Judas Priest have a momentous second half of 2022 ahead of them. The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year after being nominated several times. Judas Priest bassist Ian Hill recently confirmed that ex-guitarist K.K. Downing, who quit the group in 2011, will attend the induction ceremony along with the rest of the band.
Singer Rob Halford also recently divulged more information about Judas Priest's new album, which he said should arrive by 2024 at the latest and will serve as a follow-up to 2018's Firepower. "It’s not Firepower Number Two, that’s all I can say," he told Metal Crypt. "If you look at Judas Priest from Rocka Rolla to Firepower, everything in between has got its character and its identity. That's what we're working on with this one. I think adventurous is a word we've never used before in trying to explain the content. It’s adventurous.
"And now people are going, 'What does he mean by that? Is it going to sound like Dolly Parton?'" Halford continued. "You’ll have to wait and see. It's great, man. It's good. It's solid. It's a very, very good, strong follow-up, as they call it, to the last one."
