The legendary heavy metal band announces the first round of dates for its farewell tour.
The world will be a less interesting place without Judas Priest delivering its patented sonic onslaught live on stage. Thankfully, the band is giving us one last chance to bask in the audio behemoth that served it well for almost four complete decades.
Right now the band has only acknowledged a series of Euro festival dates for its 2011 “Epitaph” world tour, like the Sweden Rock Festival June 9, Finland’s Sauna Festival June 11 and Copenhagen’s Copenhell Festival June 17.
Other newly announced dates are Hellfest in Nantes, France, June 19; Gods Of Metal Festival in Milan, Italy, June 22; Belgium’s Graspop Festival June 25; London’s High Voltage Festival July 23 and Germany’s Wacken Open Air Festival Aug. 5.
More dates will be announced shortly. For more information, click here for the Judas Priest website.
