British heavy metal outfit Judas Priest announced Friday it was bowing to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and wiping its North American slate clear for the remainder of 2020, postponing or canceling all remaining shows on its calendar. The band’s 50th anniversary tour will resume in 2021, with tickets for postponed shows valid for the new dates. All told, 14 dates from September and October of this year were postponed Friday to dates in the same months of next year.

An additional 11 performances scheduled for September and October of this year were cancelled entirely. The announcement indicated its hopes that many would be able to be added back to the tour. “We have every intention of adding more shows and cities to our 50th anniversary tour in the fall of 2021,” it says. “And we are hoping that we can include as many of the cancelled cities possible – as soon as we have the new dates finalized we will announce them.”

Refunds for cancelled shows will be automatically applied for those who purchased directly from Judas Priest. Those who purchased via secondary marketplaces should contact the seller to determine what their refund or credit options are. Those who purchased tickets for postponed performances from the primary marketplace will have the option of requesting a refund, and will be contacted by email with details regarding that option.
