Judas Priest at Van Andel Arena Grand Rapids on 21 September 2020
Judas Priest Grand Rapids 2021 tickets: Judas Priest announced a fall U.S. tour as part of their 50th-anniversary run. The leg launches Sept. 9 in Oxon Hill, Md., and concludes Oct. 17 in Las Vegas. Full ticket information is available at the band’s website.
“Judas Priest are primed and ready to deliver the goods with our 50 Heavy Metal Years anniversary celebration stage show spectacular!” the group said in a statement. “Performing a blistering cross section of songs from our lives in metal — we can’t wait to raise horns with you again at this once in a metal lifetime event!”
The band’s most recent studio album is 2018’s Firepower, which they promoted on tour both as headliners and as co-headliners with Deep Purple. Producer Andy Sneap filled in for guitarist Glenn Tipton, who was unable to perform live — except for a few cameos — due to his battle with Parkinson’s disease. Singer Rob Halford noted that Sneap was committed to Judas Priest through the album’s touring cycle; the band’s publicist tells UCR that Tipton will be “appearing as his health allows.”
Halford also recently hinted that the band might be thinking about recruiting former guitarist K.K. Downing — who quit angrily in 2011 — for a guest spot on its 50th-anniversary tour.
