Judas Priest - Farewell Tour Clarification


Back in December last year, Judas Priest announced their plans for the Farewell Epitaph Tour.

The band now issued the following statement: "We would like to clarify a situation that seems to be confusing a few people out there.

When we issued our press release to announce the farewell tour - we stated that it was the last major world tour for Judas Priest - nothing has changed - we didn't say it was the end of the band or that we were going to retire or the band was going to break up... Just that it would be the last major world tour we would be doing which is still the case.

We have plans for a new album (which we have already announced in an earlier press release) plus possible future releases and we would still consider doing the odd live show - if it is something special or for a great cause - but no more world tours."

I don't care either way. Things can always change in the future and what it is now, will be something different tomorrow.

Why won't they retire? They suck both live and on albums now so I think the time has come to say goodbye and sit on a rocking chair on the front porch yelling at the neighbourhood kids who steal their apples or whatever old people do.

Well, I'm glad their still together. I have a feeling they still have at least one more kick-ass album in them. Angel of Retribution had a couple really great tracks, but Nostradamus was defiantly just a big snooze fest. So I hope they can follow up with something better.

Judas Priest have heavy metal inside them to the core, they'll be making metal until they die... Judas Priest are heavy metal.

You sound like a grumpy old man yourself.

They're only giving me information I already know. I remember when they first announced the farewell tour and writing new material, I posted this was exactly what I thought the situation was in the farewell tour thread.

Has KK still left then? Or is he just not doing the tour?

No more world tours kind of sucks. But at least there will be more albums.

As far as I'm aware, he has completely retired from the band. There was definitely no statement saying he was only not doing the tour... It would be awesome if he was still going to do the new album, but Im pretty sure he wont be.

I'm not sure I understand why you talk about Converge (is it because I have them listed as one of my favourite bands?), but I gotta say I was wrong about Judas Priest live. They were pretty good at Hellfest, unlike the first times I saw them. I still think their newer albums suck, but their show was a nice surprise

I guess they changed their mind about retiring. I'm OK with that, as long as they're Metal Gods we respect their decision.
