Judas Priest announce UK tour

Judas Priest have announced dates for a late fall tour of the UK.

The 6-show run – with guests Michael Schenker's Temple Of Rock – opens in Bradford on November 23.

Fan club and venue pre-sales begin July 1 with general public tickets going on sale July 3.

The band are on the road in support of their 2014 album, “Redeemer Of Souls.”

The record marked guitarist Richie Faulkner's studio debut with Priest; he replaced founding member K.K. Downing following his retirement in 2011.

The project delivered the UK metal legends the first US Top 10 of their career.

“Redeemer Of Souls” debuted last summer at No. 6 on the US Billboard 200 with 33,000 copies sold, surpassing the group’s previous chart peak of No. 11 with 2008’s “Nostradamus.”

Judas Priest are currently playing a mixture of shows in Europe and the US over the summer, including several festival dates.
