Rejoice you Metal Faithful because the legendary Judas Priest has decided to honor our region with a return visit that will find Mastodon supporting the run. Do you deserve such a great thing to happen, well of course not because so many of you have not been hitting the smaller shows that are happening everywhere and as result the up and coming acts are struggling to make a difference. That said you are still getting a solid dose of The Priest as they continue their “Redeemer Of Souls” tour. I’ve copied “The Official Press” release and dates for you below and then I will return with some thoughts.
The Press Release:
Due to the overwhelming success of Judas Priest’s 17th studio effort overall, ‘Redeemer of Souls’ (which became the highest-charting album of their career, when it debuted on the Billboard 200 charts at #6), the band has announced a fall tour, which will hit the U.S. and Canada, from October 16th through November 12th. Supporting Priest on the U.S. dates and the Halifax engagement will be one of modern metal’s top bands, Mastodon.
