Judas Priest’s 50 Heavy Metal Years tour started off not so well. It was originally supposed to fire in 2020, then of course, was pushed back. Then once it finally got underway, guitarist Richie Faulkner had a health scare that would have ended a lesser man’s life. Richie came back better than ever, and the Priest finally got on their way with the tour in 2021/2022. Now, they’re heading back to the US with special guest Queensryche for a second leg of the tour. Normally, most bands just trot out the same exact setlist and same exact stage show for a second leg, not Judas Priest though. There’ll surely be some new surprises added for the setlist this time around. As for the dates, check them out below:
The tour spans October 2022 to November 2022 and hits all across the US in places they didn’t reach for the original tour. According to their Twitter account, most tickets go on sale 06/24/22 @ 10am Local. So if you want to see the Priest on this celebration of their 50 years of metal music, now’s the perfect chance.
