Judas Priest announces rescheduled US tour dates for 2022


Judas Priest has announced rescheduled dates for the band’s U.S. tour.

The outing had been postponed in September after guitarist Richie Faulkner suffered an aortic aneurysm onstage during Priest’s set at the Louder than Life festival, which required over 10 hours of open heart surgery. Now, with Faulkner on the mend, the “Breaking the Law” legends have announced they’ll resume touring in March 2022.

Queensryche will provide support for the tour. For the full list of dates and all ticket info, visit

Earlier this month, Faulkner shared an update on his recovery, writing that he was “feeling very strong and positive” and is back to playing his guitar every day.
