The “Firepower” tour will start in spring 2019 and will help celebrate the bans 50thanniversary and that 18thstudio album.

The band promised this in a statement, “new first-time performances born out of Firepower, as well as fresh classic cuts across the decades from the Priest world metalsphere. Our visual stage set and light show will be scorching a unique, hot, fresh vibe — mixing in headline festivals, as well as the in-your-face venue close ups. We can’t wait to reunite and reignite our maniacs … THE PRIEST IS BACK!”

Dates start off in Hollywood, Florida on May 3rdand wrap up on June 29 in Vegas. Guitarist /producer Andy Sneap will again fill in for Glenn Tipton who’s dealing with Parkinson’s disease though Tipton has been making cameos during the encores.
