Judas Priest announce US tour dates

Metal legends Judas Priest have announced a tour of North America, kicking off in March 2018 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.

Support for the trek will be provided by Yorkshire’s finest, Saxon and Black Star Riders. The tour will be in support of their highly-anticipated new studio album Firepower, the title of which was revealed on Monday.

Since we mentioned new albums, Saxon have just finished mixing theirs. It’s going to be called Thunderbolt and is probably due for release in January 2018, just in time for you to learn the songs before they hit the road with Priest. The album will feature a tribute to the late, great and sadly missed Lemmy Kilmister and Motörhead, entitled They Played Rock And Roll
