Judas Priest's tour in support of its acclaimed 18th studio album, Firepower, will continue in North America in 2019.
This week, the band announced another two months worth of tour dates, beginning next spring.
"Metal maniacs — Judas Priest is roaring back to the USA for one more blast of Firepower!" the band said in a statement.
For its second North American tour in as many years, the band promises to perform cuts from Firepower as well as its iconic back catalog.
"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!" the band added.
The tour spans from May 3 to June 29. Priest has tapped fellow U.K. hard rock legends Uriah Heep as the main support act.
