    ROB HALFORD REUNITES WITH JUDAS PRIEST

    WORLD TOUR COMING IN 2004

    SEVERAL PROJECTS ARE IN THE PLANNING STAGES



    After more than 12 years apart, Judas Priest and original lead vocalist Rob Halford have reunited for a global live concert tour in 2004. The definitive Judas Priest lineup of Rob Halford, lead guitarist Glenn Tipton, lead guitarist K.K. Downing, bassist Ian Hill and drummer Scott Travis are back.

    The original band members have been re-establishing their personal and professional relationships since 1999 along the way sparking hundreds of reunion rumors.

    Several exciting projects, in addition to the 2004 world tour, are in the early planning stages.

    The long-awaited reunion of Judas Priest and Halford will thrill fans around the globe, and once again provide them with the opportunity to see and hear the band that defined Heavy Metal as we know it today.

    Judas Priest rose from the gritty, working-class steel town of Birmingham, England, and became one of the biggest bands in the world. Judas Priest are considered the groundbreaking inventors of true Heavy Metal music. From their debut release 'Rocka Rolla' through monumental albums such as 'Sad Wings of Destiny,' 'Sin After Sin,' 'Stained Class,' 'Hell Bent For Leather,' 'Unleashed in the East,' 'British Steel,' 'Screaming for Vengeance,' 'Defenders of the Faith' and 'Painkiller,' titanic songs like "Victim of Changes," "Sinner," "Exciter," "Hell Bent for Leather," "Living After Midnight," "Breaking the Law" and "You've Got Another Thing Comin' '' were born. Judas Priest defines and epitomizes both sonically and visually the Heavy Metal genre.

    Next year's reunion tour will also celebrate the band's 30th anniversary.

    Judas Priest and Ripper Owens, who replaced Halford, have parted amicably by mutual agreement.* The band is very grateful for Ripper's work in helping them to continue to bring Judas Priest's music to their millions of fans and they expect big things for him in the future.

    Updates will be posted regularly at www.judaspriest.com

    This is bitter sweet news...

    On one hand I'm excited that the Old School Priest is back!

    On the other hand I'll miss The Ripper! There was something really cool about seeing a red blooded American fan, front Judas Priest. He always had this huge smile on his face... like he couldn't believe he was singing with the Priest.

    Maybe he'll hook up with Iced Earth or the Pantera Brothers? Although I want those gigs.:loco:

    It will be an awesome tour... maybe they'll hook up with Maiden for the 04 leg of the tour?

    It's a beautiful day for rock n' roll. TGIF!!!!!!!!

    You said it, bro! Everyone gave Ripper sh*t because they wanted Rob back in the band, but everyone would (should) agree that Ripper has an incredible voice. I wish him, and the guys from Halford the best of luck. The last 3 Halford CDs are by far 3 of the absolute best metal recordings EVER!! If Ripper hooks up with Vinnie/Darrell the sh*t will be BRUTAL!

    Why? Do you want to go out on a date with him? :Smug: He's gay, he's out...what's the big deal?

    Now, Halford is back with Priest? THAT'S a big deal! :D Priest has their voice back! They can stop being the ultimate Judas Priest tribute band now!

    That is great news! Judas Priest without Rob is like Iron maiden without Bruce.

    I really did not like Juggulator and Demolition.

    that would soo kick ass if Maiden and priest toured together, but based on what the tour for the new record sounds like, maiden wont be doing too many shows, and priest will probably wanna rock out at as many places as possible.

    I'm soo stoked that Halford is back with Priest! I do think that Ripper did a great with Priest. He's got a great voice and can hit the high notes just as Halford can. But, the style is definitely different and by no means it's worse, rather it's just different. I still listen to the two albums he was in with them. Halford with Priest on the otherhand is a match that brings magic. The music they make together is just mind blowing. Soo many times I've been F'd up and put in the Unleashed in the East cd, and cranked it! Ahhh... what a great feeling. I'm looking forward to seeing this tour!
