2020 marks 50 years since heavy metal giants Judas Priest began their legendary career. To celebrate, they are embarking on an anniversary tour.
The English rockers will set out on a 24-date trek across the U.S. beginning in September. The outing, dubbed the 50 Heavy Metal Years Tour, will get underway in Maryland at MGM National Harbor and make its way across the country before wrapping in Las Vegas a month later. Its two dozen tour stops also include venues in Philadelphia, Milwaukee, San Antonio, Phoenix, Chicago and Los Angeles.
“Judas Priest are primed and ready to deliver the goods with our 50 Heavy Metal Years anniversary celebration stage show spectacular,” the band said in a statement. “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 band have been some of metal’s most consistent performers. They hit the road last summer on a sizable tour to support their 2018 record Firepower.
