Sabaton to tour the US with Judas Priest

Swedish metal battalion Sabaton will join Judas Priest for their “50 Heavy Metal Years Tour” in the US. Taking place in September and October, this will follow Sabaton’s Russian invasion in March and European festivals in late summer, including their own Sabaton Open Air in Sweden in August. See all Sabaton tour dates below!

Sabaton bassist Pär Sundström comments: “It’s a great honour for us to be special guests to one of the most influential metal bands of all time, for a very special tour. We received a lot of requests from the USA that fans wanted to see us return after the successful tour we did last year and here we are, in great company.”

“Judas Priest are primed and ready to deliver the goods with our ’50 Heavy Metal Years’ anniversary celebration stage show spectacular,” the band said in a statement. “Performing a blistering cross section of songs from our lives in metal — we can’t wait to raise horns with you again at this once-in-a-metal-lifetime event.”

Judas Priest members Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner recently commenced the official songwriting sessions for the band’s follow-up to “Firepower” album. Released in March 2018, “Firepower” was the second LP to feature the 40-year-old Faulkner, who was selected to fill the void left by founding guitarist K.K. Downing following his exit in 2011. Last month, Faulkner said that he had “a ton of ideas” for Priest’s next disc. He added: “We just have to get together and see what metal magic we can create”.
