Judas Priest announce 2019 Firepower North American tour



Judas Priest have announced dates for a spring 2019 tour of North America in support of their latest album, “Firepower.”

Joined by guests Uriah Heep, the veteran UK metal outfit will begin the two-month series in Hollywood, FL on May 3; the run includes multiple nights in several cities and a western Canadian swing before it wraps up in Las Vegas, NV on June 29 (see dates below).

“Metal maniacs - Judas Priest is roaring back to the USA for one more blast of Firepower!,” says the band. “Firepower 2019 charges forth with new first time performances born out of Firepower, as well as fresh classic cuts across the decades from the Priest world metalsphere.

“Our visual stage set and light show will be scorching a unique, hot, fresh vibe - mixing in headline festivals, as well as the in-your-face venue close ups. We can’t wait to reunite and reignite our maniacs...The Priest is back!”


Produced by Tom Allom and Andy Sneap, "Firepower" earned Judas Priest their highest-charting US album with its debut at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 earlier this year; the project was launched with the lead single, “Lightning Strike.”

Judas Priest will wrap up their 2018 live schedule in North Jakarta, Indonesia on December 7; they will return to the road in January for concert dates across Europea and the UK.
