Judas Priest Announce Rescheduled 50th Anniversary Tour with Queensryche [UPDATED]
November 29, 12:16pm EST: Now with newly announced dates added to the full routing below.
Judas Priest have announced rescheduled dates for their North American 50th anniversary tour. The initial run was cut short in September when guitarist Richie Faulkner suffered a cardiac event on stage that would require ten-hour emergency surgery.
Queensryche have been announced as the opening act for all dates. They had been scheduled to open for Scorpions at a Las Vegas residency during the same time frame but have since pulled out, replaced by Skid Row.
Faulkner is currently at home recovering from surgery and was “feeling strong and positive” at the two-month mark in mid-November.
