DETROIT (WWJ) – After storming the world for nearly 40 years and taking their very special brand of heavy metal to all four corners of the planet, Judas Priest, one of the most influential heavy metal bands of all time, have announced their final world tour!
The mighty Priest will certainly be going out strong as they rock the planet on the massive “Epitaph Tour” – hitting major cities throughout the world, including Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena with special guests Black Label Society and Thin Lizzy on Sunday, Nov. 13 at 6 pm. Tickets go on sale Saturday, June 4 at 10 am.
The tour will feature new guitarist Richie Faulkner. The 31 year old British guitar player has blended into the band perfectly, due to his amazing six-string talents. Richie joins Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, Ian Hill and Scott Travis in the line-up. Priest will be playing the songs that helped make the name Judas Priest synonymous with heavy metal.
With all guns blazing and amps cranked to eleven, the band will be giving all their fans one last chance to witness the ultimate metal experience that is Judas Priest.
