With JUDAS PRIEST‘s latest studio album, “Firepower”, confirmed as one of the most successful of the band’s entire career — landing in the Top 5 of 17 countries (including the band’s highest chart placement ever in the U.S., at #5) — demand to see the legendary metal band in concert is higher than ever. The “Firepower” trek is PRIEST‘s first since guitarist Glenn Tipton announced that he was retiring from the road due to his battle with Parkinson’s disease. He is being replaced on tour by “Firepower” album producer Andy Sneap, also known for his work as the guitar player in NWOBHM revivalists HELL and cult thrash outfit SABBAT.

And North American headbangers will get their chance to experience the legendary band on a nearby concert stage this coming spring/summer, when PRIEST will tour throughout the continent — with the classic metal band URIAH HEEP as support.

Kicking off on May 3 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida and wrapping up on June 29 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, fans will get an opportunity to catch PRIEST at the height of their concert powers on any one of the tour’s 32 dates.

Says JUDAS PRIEST in a statement: “Metal maniacs — JUDAS PRIEST is roaring back to the USA for one more blast of ‘Firepower’‘Firepower’ 2019 charges forth with new first time performances born out of ‘Firepower’, as well as fresh classic cuts across the decades from the PRIEST world metalsphere. Our visual stage set and light show will be scorching a unique, hot, fresh vibe — mixing in headline festivals, as well as the in-your-face venue close ups. We can’t wait to reunite and reignite our maniacs… THE PRIEST IS BACK!”
