Metal greats Judas Priest and Queensryche will embark on a lengthy U.S. tour this fall

Judas Priest will continue their “50 Heavy Metal Years” tour this fall with a fresh round of 2022 U.S. dates with support from Queensrÿche. The metal greats will set off on the tour starting Oct. 13 in Wallingford, Connecticut, and remain on the road through a Nov. 29 show in Houston. Tickets for the newly announced gigs go on sale to the general public Friday (June 24) via Ticketmaster.

“Defending the heavy metal faith for fifty years, the Priest is back!” vocalist Rob Halford said in a statement. Bass player Ian Hill, “After the horrific last few years of restrictions we’ve all had to endure, what better place to break free, than the land of the free — the USA!”

Judas Priest is keeping plenty busy this year. The group recently closed out a string of tour dates that marked the return of guitarist Richie Faulkner, who had suffered a ruptured aorta while performing on stage during Louder than Life Festival in 2021. In addition, the group will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2022 when they receive the Musical Excellence Award. Former Priest guitarist K.K. Downing will reportedly be at the ceremony, despite his split with the group in 2011.
