Judas Priest Are Bringing Their Rescheduled 50th Anniversary Tour to Canada
Judas Priest have been rocking out for half a century, and to celebrate their big five oh, they've finally rescheduled their promised 50th anniversary tour.

The trek — called the "50 Heavy Metal Years Tour" — doesn't include expected stops like Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver. Instead, the band will bring their leather and studs to the likes of Halifax, Laval and Hamilton this fall.

"Defending the heavy metal faith for 50 years, the Priest is back!" Rob Halford said in a statement.

The band's Ian Hill added, "After the horrific year of restrictions we've all had to endure, what better place to break free, than the land of the free — the USA!"

Peep the full run of newly rescheduled 2021 Priest dates below. Tickets for the newly announced dates will go on sale beginning this Friday (June 11) at 10 a.m. local time, while tickets for previously announced tour dates are available now.
