Not many bands can say they managed to stand the test of time for 50 years, but Judas Priest is getting there – and they’re celebrating in style! The legendary metal band will embark on an anniversary tour to mark this historic achievement.

Members of Judas Priest have been teasing this event for a while, but the list of North American dates is finally here, and the band can’t wait to hit the road and celebrate the anniversary with their loyal fans.

“Judas Priest are primed and ready to deliver the goods with our 50 Heavy Metal Years anniversary celebration stage show spectacular! 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!” said the band in a statement.

Judas Priest will spend the summer performing across Europe, but they’ll make their way to the US in September and celebrate the anniversary with their North American fans. The first concert will take place at MGM National Harbor in Maryland on September 9th, and they’re expected to conclude the tour at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood on October 17th.
