Judas Priest Announces First 2014 U.S. Concert
Judas Priest is set to make its first 2014 appearance in the U.S. — and the first in Austin, Texas in more than 25 years — with a stop at the Fun Fun Fun Fest this November.
Held at Auditorium Shores and Butler Park from Nov. 7-9, the ninth annual festival also includes Neutral Milk Hotel, Amon Amarth, Death Cab for Cutie, Nas and King Diamond, among others. Passes are on sale now at FunFunFunFest.com. Additional acts may also be announced later.
Judas Priest will be touring behind its forthcoming new studio effort ‘Redeemer of Souls,’ due July 15 via Epic Records. ‘Redeemer’ is the group’s first studio effort since 2008′s ambitious double-album project ‘Nostradamus,’ and their first with Richie Faulkner — who replaced long-time guitarist K.K. Downing in 2011.
