Two legendary rock bands are teaming up for an unforgettable outing this summer. Judas Priest and Deep Purple have announced their co-headlining North American tour. The trek hits up 25 cities and starts August 21 in Cincinnati, Ohio and wraps up in Wheatland, Calif. Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 27 at 10 a.m. You can find all the dates below.

Deep Purple released their latest album, inFinite, in April 2017 via earMUISC. The album featured 10 new tracks and was produced by Bob Ezrin. Meanwhile, Judas Priest released their new album, Firepower, last month via Epic Records. Co-produced by Tom Allom and Andy Sneap, it features their highest charing commercial single with "Lightning Strike" and is one of their most successful releases.

This year, Judas Priest was nominated to be inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Unfortunately, they lost out to Bon Jovi, Dire Straits, Nina Simone, and The Cars to name a few.
