Judas Priest Announce Rescheduled 50th Anniversary Tour Dates
Queensrÿche will join the metal vets on the tour, which has four shows in Canada
Published Nov 25, 2021After the pandemic forced Judas Priest to reschedule their 50th anniversary tour once, they were forced to postpone it after guitarist Richie Faulkner ruptured an aorta onstage. Here's hoping third time's the charm for the metal vets, who have now mapped out dates for 2022.
Next year, Judas Priest will play the remaining 17 North American dates on their itinerary with support from Queensrÿche, including four stops in Canada to round out the tour.
On April 7, the two bands will play Halifax's Scotiabank Centre, ahead of a date at Quebec City's Videotron Centre on April 10. From there, they play Place Bell in Laval, QC, on April 11, before the tour's last stop comes at Hamilton's FirstOntario Centre on April 13.
You can find the complete itinerary below. Further ticketing details can be found here, while those for the Hamilton show can be found here.
Upon postponing dates following Faulkner's health scare, Judas Priest shared that previously purchased tickets would be valid for new dates, though an official announcement has yet to come from the band as of press time.
