Judas Priest announce North American Tour

The mighty Judas Priest announced last December that they would call it a day after the completion of their "Epitaph World Tour", which should run until 2012. In an interview earlier this year, Heavy Metal icon Rob Halford confirmed this news:

"I think it's time, you know. We're not the first band to say farewell, it's just the way everyone comes to at some point and we're gonna say a few more things early next year, so I think the main thing that we just want to ask everybody to consider is don't be sad about this, start celebrating and rejoicing over all the great things we've done in Judas Priest."
