Judas Priest announce 50th anniversary US tour

Judas Priest have announced dates for a 50th anniversary US tour this fall.

The milestone series – with guest Sabaton – will begin September 9 in Oxon Hill, MD and run to a mid-October show in Las Vegas, NV.

“Judas Priest are primed and ready to deliver the goods with our 50 Heavy Metal Years anniversary celebration stage show spectacular!,” says the band. “Performing a blistering cross section of songs from our lives in metal - we can't wait to raise horns with you again at this once in a metal lifetime event!”

Ticket information for all shows is available at

Judas Priest recently confirmed that they have begun work on a new record.

Guitarist Richie Faulkner took to social media earlier this month to share an image of himself alongside Rob Halford and Glenn Tipton as the trio began writing sessions for the follow-up to 2018’s “Firepower”, which earned the band their highest-charting US album with its debut at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 upon its release.

Judas Priest will begin their 2020 live schedule May 30 in Helsinki, Finland.
