In the fall, Judas Priest are bringing their Invincible Shield Tour back to North America. The metal legends confirmed Tuesday plans to run it back in September, once again with very special guests Sabaton. The new trek begins at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec on September 13 and wraps up on October 26 at The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory in Irving, Texas.

Check out the full tour itinerary below.

Tickets will be available starting with an artist pre-sale beginning on Wednesday, June 12. Additional pre-sales will run throughout the week. General tickets go on sale beginning on Friday, June 14 at 10am local time.

Back in the spring, Judas Priest kicked off the first leg of their North American Invincible Shield Tour. Priest bombarded the crowed at Santander Arena in Reading, Pennsylvania with a hefty 18-song set. After opening with a new tune, they launched right into one of their biggest hits – “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’.” Showing absolutely no mercy, they ripped through “Rapid Fire” next. Just three songs in, any doubt that this band might be slowing down after five decades was quickly eviscerated. Another massive hit, “Breaking the Law,” immediately followed. What a wild start it was.

Other highlights from the set included “Lightning Strike,” “Turbo Lover,” “Sinner,” “Victims of Change,” and the all-new “Crown of Horns,” among others. They pulled tracks from eleven different records out out of the total nineteen in their discography, an impressive sampling of their storied career. They wrapped up their set with the strongest song in their entire catalog – “Painkiller.”

With the crowed needing more, Priest returned and delivered. As “The Hellion” began to play through the speakers, the band launched into a three-song encore of “The Electric Eye, “Hell Bent for Leather,” and “Livin’ After Midnight.” After a set like that, the fans definitely wished the show would keep going well after midnight. Per usual, Priest did not disappoint. They rarely do, if ever. While we’re not sure just how much gas they have left in the tank, the band is racing full speed ahead powered by their latest hit record.

Fresh off their 50th anniversary celebrations, the band’s latest LP Invincible Shield is the follow-up to their acclaimed 2018 album, Firepower. The latter record was the band’s biggest commercial success, charting at No. 5 on the UK Albums Chart and Billboard 200 as well as hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums chart. For Firepower, Judas Priest reunited with producer Tom Allom (Black Sabbath, Def Leppard, Krokus), who last produced the band’s 1988 album, Ram It Down. The record was co-produced by Andy Sneap, who would stepped in as a touring guitarist for the band. Long-time member Glenn Tipton retired from touring after revealing his Parkinson’s diagnoses, just one month before the album’s release. Tipton co-wrote every song on Firepower. After delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Judas Priest toured relentlessly to celebrate the success of Firepower and the band’s five decades of heavy metal.

Judas Priest’s nineteenth studio effort Invincible Shield was released back on March 6. Anchored by the lead single, “Panic Attack,” the album performed well commercially. It hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums chart, and No. 4 on Top Rock Albums. It peaked at No. 2 on the UK Albums Chart, and topped the UK Rock & Metal albums chart. After selling over 50 million albums worldwide, Judas Priest were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2022.
