Priest, Anthrax Hit The Road

By | August 1, 2001 at 12:00 AM

Judas Priest will tour in support of Demolition, their first release since 1997’s Jugulator and second album to showcase the vocals of Tim “Ripper” Owens, which hits stores tomorrow. Owens – who replaced Rob Halford after he quit in 1993 – had previously fronted a Judas Priest cover band, and his story is the basis of the upcoming Mark Wahlberg/Jennifer Aniston movie, Rock Star.

Joining Priest this fall will be thrash men Anthrax and punkers Pure Rubbish. Anthrax’s performance on the October 3rd date in Chicago will be recorded for a live album.
