Ever since it was announced that metal icons Judas Priest would be unleashing their 17th studio album overall, Redeemer of Souls (on July 8, 2014), their legion of fans have been wondering if the band would be launching a supporting tour. And the answer is a resounding YES,  Priest will be touring the U.S. in the fall with dates running throughout October and for most of November. Along with a date right here in the Sun City on Saturday, November 8.

Steel Panther will be "special guests" for all the dates.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, July 18 through, by calling 915-747-5234 and at the University Ticket Center. Tickets prices are $42.50, $52.50 and $62.50 plus applicable service charges.

Already, Redeemer of Souls is creating a deafening pre-release buzz largely due to overwhelmingly positive reviews:

"Galloping riffs, dueling solos and Rob Halford's battle shrieks make it classic Priest at its metal core." Rolling Stone Magazine [review of "Redeemer of Souls" single]

Comprised of Rob Halford (vocals), Glenn Tipton (guitar), Richie Faulkner (guitar), Ian Hill (bass), and Scott Travis (drums), Judas Priest is responsible for some of heavy metal's all-time classic songs ("Living After Midnight," "Breaking the Law," "You've Got Another Thing Coming," etc.) and albums (British Steel, Screaming for Vengeance, Painkiller, etc.).

And come the fall, the mighty Priest will be ferociously rocking the U.S. once more.

News about special fan presale for tickets, merchandise bundles, and more will be announced soon. Visit and sign up now for further information.
