Judas Priest are bringing their Redeemer of Souls tour to London.
The heavy metal veterans kick off their run of six UK shows in Bradford on 23 November and end up at Brixton Academy on 1 December 2015.
Support comes from Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock.
The shows, which follow the band’s recent Download outing, are in support of their 17th studio album, ‘Redeemer of Souls, released in July last year.
“We feel ‘Redeemer of Souls’ reinforces our passion for what we believe in from the Judas Priest style heavy metal,” the band said at the time.
The album, their first without founding guitarist KK Downing, marked Richie Faulkner’s studio debut with Priest and saw him co-write the material alongside guitarist Glenn Tipton and singer Rob Halford.
“Raising the bar is consistent for us and ‘Redeemer’ hits the ground running,” Priest said of the collection that entered the US charts at number six, marking their highest debut in a 40-year career.
Since 1974, the band – completed by the rhythm section of Ian Hill and Scott Travis – have been responsible for the landmark albums ‘British Steel’, ‘Screaming for Vengeance’, and ‘Painkiller’ and classic heavy metal anthems like ‘Breaking the Law’ and ‘Living After Midnight’.
