They just announced they will be playing the entire British Steel album live to celebrate its' 30th anniversary!
This is great news because the rumor was that they were going to be playing the Nostradamus album live (which sucked). I saw Priest live last year on the Metal Masters Tour and they were amazing, Halford can still sing like he did in his prime! DO NOT MISS THIS!
Whitesnake will be opening for them on most shows, I don't care much for them because they're just a Led Zeppelin rip off, and borderline hair-metal. But whatever, it's JUDAS FUCKING PRIEST!

1st July THE FAMILY ARENA/ST. CHARLES, MO with WHITESNAKE
2nd July SUMMERFEST 2009 - HARLEY DAVIDSON STAGE/MILWAUKEE, WI
