Judas Priest are celebrating their legacy stateside this fall. In honor of their 50th anniversary as a band, the heavy metal pioneers are embarking on a massive North American trek with support from Sabaton

Many of the stops are rescheduled dates from the tour that was originally set to go down last year before the pandemic struck, but Judas Priest have also added 19 new gigs to the itinerary to flesh out the historic milestone that only a small handful of bands have ever achieved. The two-month journey kicks off September 8th in Reading, PA, and then travels from coast-to-coast before concluding in Hamilton, Ontario, on November 5th. 

Tickets for the new dates go on sale June 11th at 10 a.m. local times, while tickets for the rescheduled dates are available now via Ticketmaster. Check out the full routing below.
