Judas Priest announce Japanese tour

Judas Priest have announced dates for a fall tour of Japan in support of their latest album, “Firepower.”

Following a previously-revealed series of shows in South America, the five-show run will open in Hokkaido on November 21 before stops in Gifu, Okayama, Oaska and Tokyo.

Tickets for the Japanese tour will go on sale Saturday, August 4 here.

The veteran UK rockers have also added a December 7 concert in Jakarta, Indonesia to the fall series, with presale tickets available Saturday, August 4 before the public on sale on Sunday, August 5 here.

Judas Priest just issued a video for the “Firepower” track, “No Surrender”; the clip sees the band performing the tune in a rehearsal space, where they are joined by guitarist Glenn Tipton, who retired from the road this spring due to health issues from a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease.

Currently on the road across Europe, Judas Priest will return to North America to team up with Deep Purple for a series of shows that will begin in Cincinnati, OH on August 21.
