After storming the world for nearly 40 years, Judas Priest have just announced their final tour dates.
The final tour, dubbed Epitaph, will feature new guitarist Richie Faulkner. The 31-year-old Brit replaced longtime guitarist K.K. Downing last month after the latter announced his retirement. Prior to joining Judas Priest, Faulkner played in bands such as Dirty Deeds, Voodoo Six, Ace Mafia, and Lauren Harris Band.
Support on the North American leg of the Judas Priest tour will be provided by Thin Lizzy and Black Label Society.
