It was only a few months ago that Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford surprised fans by releasing a holiday-themed album, Celestial. Now, Judas Priest fans are over the moon once again as the band has announced dates for their 50 Heavy Metal Years Tour 2020. Sabaton will have the honor of opening for the metal gods during the tour.

Dates have been announced throughout September and October, with stops in Philadelphia (Tickets), Denver (Tickets), Salt Lake City (Tickets), and Los Angeles (Tickets). Presales for those shows begin Feb. 25 with tickets going on sale to the public Feb. 28. AXS Premium tickets and VIP Experiences are available for select dates. 

The band issued a public statement to fans, saying; “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!”

The current Judas Priest line-up features Rob Halford on vocals, Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner on guitar, Ian Hill on bass and Scott Travis on drums. Their most recent studio album Firepower, their highest charting album ever, was released in 2017.
