As you should well know by now, Judas Priest's Firepower fucking rules. Over a year out from its early 2018 release, the album has cemented its status as a highlight in the NWOBHM pioneers' already insane discography, and as Priest have demonstrated live onstage over that same time, the record seems to have reinvigorated the group. Stateside fans will get another opportunity to witness the majesty of Rob Halford and Co. in person when the band returns to North American this May and June. The group just announced a massive new tour that starts in Hollywood, Florida, on May 3rd, rounding through the United States and Canada before ending in Las Vegas on June 29th. The band's Facebook post breaking the news of the trek promises "New Show - New Set - New Songs," so it's going to be exciting to see what songs from the catalog they break out. Priest will be joined by hard-rock veterans Uriah Heep. Check out the full itinerary below.
