Heavy Metal legends Judas Priest have rescheduled their previously postponed tour days supporting their 50 Years of Heavy Metal tour in Europe to summer 2022. The trek will now run from May 27, 2022 in Moscow, Russia until July 31, 2022 in Oberhausen, Germany. The band is still planning to perform at Bloodstock Open Air this August.
The band commented:
“Unfortunately due to ongoing COVID-19 vaccine issues in Europe we have been advised that our 2021 dates will not be able to take place as planned – all dates have been rescheduled to 2022 as detailed here – all tickets will remain valid for the new dates – further dates will be announced shortly…. However we are pleased to confirm our UK headline show at Bloodstock Open Air 2021 is still scheduled for this coming August where we look forward to celebrating 50 years of Judas Priest and 20 years of Bloodstock.”
Last September, Judas Priest and Rufus Publications announced the publication of the first-ever official Judas Priest book documenting the band’s extensive history over the last 50 years. Titled “Judas Priest – 50 Heavy Metal Years”, the book has been put together by David Silver, Ross Halfin and Jayne Andrews.
The U.S. leg of PRIEST’s “50 Heavy Metal Years” tour will kick off September 11 in Orlando, Florida and wrap up on October 30 in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
