The last time we did an update for the legendary Judas Priest was to share that their proposed show at the Nassau Coliseum would not be happening based on the arena closing its doors. Sadly I am back with more sad news from the band as the entire run has been scrapped for 2020 and many of the dates will happen in 2021. Read on from the bands Official Facebook down below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: At this point I’ve not much else to say because pretty much everything for the year has been cancelled or awaits to be revealed as being cancelled. It sure does suck but of course its all resultant of this terrible Coronavirus Pandemic which is still a matter for us to be taking seriously. I miss my shows and conventions for sure but I’d rather be confident in knowing I can attend them and not bring something dangerous home with me. Stay safe out there my friends, keep on wearing your masks, practicing that social distancing stuff and following whatever guidelines your respective region has set in place. See you next time.
