Judas Priest postponed dates on their 50th-anniversary tour after guitarist Richie Faulkner suffered an acute cardiac aortic dissection (his aorta ruptured) during the band’s performance at the ‘Louder Than Life’ festival. Now that Faulkner is recovering and on the mend, the band have announced a new run of rescheduled dates. The six-week trek begins on March 4 in Peoria, Ill., and concludes on April 13 in Hamilton, Ont.
Queensryche will serve as support on all rescheduled dates; Queensryche were originally scheduled to open for Scorpions on their Las Vegas residency, however, they have pulled out of those shows and will be replaced by Skid Row.
You can see the new 2022 dates at the link below. Most tickets are on sale now on Ticketmaster, however a few shows will go on sale Dec. 3.
