Back in July we helped broadcast the news about the rescheduling of the “50 Heavy Metal Years” Tour by the legendary Judas Priest (seen HERE). Sadly, based on the world being in the state that it currently is, the band has released the statement about 2021 being a wash for their UK Dates with Ozzy Osbourne and that they hope to return to active Metal duty in 2022. Read on to their statement and check your calendars for the dates you might have been planning on doing since you’ll need to get a refund if you are in that neck of the woods.

The Press Release:
There is no easy way to put this. Devastation on the Nation Tour 2021 is canceled.

When we rescheduled the tour we thought that in a year everything would be okay again, but it still is not and we have no clear picture of what the future holds. More and more venues are closing down every month. This virus (COVID-19) has ruined everything for so many bands, musicians, and venues.

Even if the tour were to still happen in February/March of 2021, how many more venues will be closed down? What will the capacity restrictions be for each show? How will 3 out of 5 bands from a different country survive here IF the borders reopen? It’s impossible to know and at this point there is no light at the end of the tunnel. We will not reschedule again until we 100% know that it will be possible for the tour to happen and that the bands from outside of the US are able to come here.
