Judas Priest Start 50th Anniversary Tour
The bad news is, they're not coming here. The good news is, they're coming very close!
Judas Priest recently announced the tour dates for their upcoming 50th-anniversary tour. While an El Paso stop is not currently scheduled, they will be playing in Albuquerque on October 8th. The next closest stops are in Phoenix, (10/13) and San Antonio. (10/6) Get a sneak preview in the video above.
“Judas Priest are primed and ready to deliver the goods with our 50 Heavy Metal Years anniversary celebration stage show spectacular! 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 raves. - Loudwire
Albuquerque is, of course, a super easy road trip. It only takes about 3 and a half hours to get there. (3 hours if you only consider the speed limit to be a "suggestion".) Just take I-10 to Las Cruces, then I-25 to Albuquerque.
