Judas Priest 'Reconstructing' How They Tour
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.27.2014



Rob Halford recently spoke with Billboard about Judas Priest's Redeemer of Souls tour, which kicks off on October 8th to support the July 8th album release. Check out the highlights:

On being excited for the tour: "When we were writing the song ("Redeemer of Souls") we were looking at each other and going, 'Man, I can't wait 'til we play this live.' Nostradamus was a very ambitious project; there was a lot of that we could put out on stage but would have to back it up in some way. All these songs on Redeemer of Souls can be played live, so we're ready to go."

On the band's touring change: "[We're] reconstructing the way we tour. We're not going to go out on 18-month schleps anymore. We're gonna take big breaks here and there. We love to get out on the road; we're just kind of pulling the reins in a little bit."

On the tour coinciding with the 45th anniversary of the band: "It's an absolute blessing. What's really heartwarming about this is the fact that the so-called old guard of metal and rock are still as strong and thriving as we ever were. I have very close friends like (Black Sabbath), who released a fantastic metal album and went out on this huge world tour; they've been together longer than we have. Then you get (Iron)Maiden, then bands like Metallica, doing that type of process. All the bands that have been making this music for a very long time are still as strong and relevant as they ever were, so we're part of some very good company."
