TESTAMENT frontman Chuck Billy announced onstage last
night (Sunday, April 6) at B.B. King Blues Club &
Grill in New York City that his band has been
confirmed as the opening act on the upcoming JUDAS
PRIEST, HEAVEN AND HELL and MOTÖRHEAD tour, which is
scheduled to take place this summer.

"We'll be on first, and we're only gonna have 30
minutes, so we won't be doing any talking," Billy
said. "We're just gonna hit you hard bam, bam, bam,
bam with everything we've got."

On April 2, Pollstar.com the companion web site of
the concert industry's leading trade publication
released (and then quickly removed) what appear to be
several dates for the tour, which is being promoted by
Live Nation.

Although there has been no official confirmation
regarding the much-rumored trek, Pollstar.com listed
the following TESTAMENT arena dates during the month
of August:

Aug. 07 - Bristow, VA @ Nissan Pavilion At Stone Ridge

Aug. 09 - Holmdel, NJ @ PNC Bank Arts Center
Aug. 10 - Wantagh, NY @ Nikon At Jones Beach Theater
Aug. 13 - Toronto, ON @ The Molson Amphitheatre
Aug. 15 - Uncasville, CT @ Mohegan Sun
Aug. 16 - Burgettstown, PA @ Post-Gazette Pavilion
Aug. 18 - Clarkston, MI @ DTE Energy Music Theatre
Aug. 19 - Tinley Park, IL @ First Midwest Bank
Amphitheatre

**IMPORTANT**: The above-listed dates were provided by
Pollstar and should be treated as a *rumor only* until
officially confirmed by the bands involved with the
tour or the tour's organizers, Live Nation.

In an interview with "The Classic Metal Show" which
aired on March 29, JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford
stated about the trek, "Live Nation are promoting the
tour, and I guess the professional way of dealing with
this is to say that Live Nation will be making an
official announcement probably a few days from now.
But it's difficult to keep that kind of thing quiet
'cause If it does happen, and it's looking very real,
it's gonna be one of the biggest metal shows in the
States this year. . . You have to wait for the
official announcement because it has to be sanctioned
by management and the lawyers in the suits and that
other rubbish. But if we get what we are hoping to
get, I think it's gonna be an absolutely sensational,
killer American tour 'cause it won't happen anywhere
else in the world, this lineup. It'll just be for the
States."

Its official: Heaven and Hell to tour US with Judas Priest



After weeks of speculation, Live Nation has put together a killer package that is bound to go down as the heavy metal event of 2008 - Judas Priest, Heaven and Hell, Motorhead, and Testament will be touring together for the first time.

Dubbed 'The Metal Masters Tour,' the sixteen date U.S. trek kicks off August 6th at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey.

Judas Priest will be supporting their epic concept album, 'Nostradamus,' which will arrive on June 17th via Epic Records, and tells the tale of the renowned 16th century prophet. A few tracks from 'Nostradamus' will make their in-concert debut on 'The Metal Masters Tour,' but the majority of Priest's set list will include some of metal's all-time classics, as well as fan favorites that span the quintet's entire career. Without a doubt, this will be one of Priest's most powerful sets ever. As a 'sneak peak treat' to fans starved for a musical taster, the first cut off the new album will make its world premiere debut as exclusive free MP3 download starting today exclusively at www.livenation.com/judaspriest.

Heaven & Hell will be supporting the release of The Rules Of Hell, a five-CD boxed set available on July 22nd from Rhino Records which features re-mastered versions of all four Dio-era Black Sabbath albums ('Heaven and Hell,' 'Mob Rules,' 'Live Evil,' and 'Dehumanizer') in a deluxe package with new liner notes.

Perennial road rats Motorhead will be touring strictly for the love of it, offering a fan favorites set spanning more than three decades worth of molar-rattling metal. Motorhead's last album was 2006's 'Kiss of Death' (released via Sanctuary Records), their 19th studio set of their long and highly influential career. A new album is currently in the works as well, which is currently being recorded at their old pal Dave Grohl's studio with a August release date targeted. Lemmy blairs out, "Here it comes everybody, the test of your Metalness in 2008 and the years to come! Come one come all and be abused!"

Rounding out the line-up will be legendary thrash metal titans Testament, whose new album, 'The Formation of Damnation,' (April 29th,) displays Testament as the quintessential modern heavy metal band, whose experience and accumulated skill allows them to attack with reserves of anger, energy and finesse that make them more powerful than ever. Lead singer Chuck Billy says, "Uniting these bands is the heavy metal event of generations. We are so proud to be a part of it."

Although all four bands may represent different subgenres of heavy metal, all four have one thing in common they have stuck to their stylistic guns through thick and thin, and have remained true to the metal form. And soon, band and fan will be united as one on 'The Metal Masters Tour.'

"As ever, we look forward to screaming out loud with our metal maniac fans when we hit the road," enthuses Priest singer, Rob Halford. "Thank you once again for your devotion and support. The Priest is back!"

This tour will be limited to fifteen very special engagements, and Citi cardmembers will have pre-sale access to tickets through Citi's Private Pass® Program, available to all Citi cardmembers at www.privatepass.citi.com.

Metal maniacs seeking the ultimate concert experience can access unique VIP ticket and fan experience packages that offer premium seats, meet & greets, pre-concert parties and more brought to you by the band's official websites, www.judaspriest.com and www.heavenandhelllive.com. VIP packages for the first events will be on sale by 10 a.m eastern time on Friday, April 25th. Also, not all VIP packages are the same, so be sure to pick the right one that suits you best.

Tickets go on sale to the public beginning this weekend at www.livenation.com.

JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford spoke to Greg Prato
of Billboard.com about the bands' first "The Metal
Masters Tour" this summer, which will also feature
HEAVEN AND HELL, MOTÖRHEAD and TESTAMENT.

"We insisted on a classic metal package which is what
we've got I will enjoy seeing all the bands,"
Halford tells Billboard.com.

As previously reported, JUDAS PRIEST plans to perform
its upcoming album, "Nostradamus", in its entirety
during a fall headlining tour, but the band will debut
some of the new songs during "Metal Masters". Starting
today (April 21), fans can download the title track
for free through the Live Nation site.

Halford promises the "Metal Masters" sets will feature
"a combination of PRIEST classics including songs
from our catalog never before played live."

 One more date there: May 30th, Oslo, Norway at Sentrum Scene.

I'll be there since I've missed his last visit to Norway.

What's interesting is that they have put him on a bigger venue that he usual plays at when coming here as a solo artist. He usually plays at Rockefeller, which takes about 1200, but now he will play at Sentrum Scene, with a capacity of 1800. Guess it must be a renewed interest in him because of the Heaven and Hell-project?biggrin

    Hello Dionorway. Now that's a handle that I haven't seen for a long time.
