It’s hard to believe that metal gods Judas Priest have been keeping chiropractors in business for five decades now. But they have, and to honor this momentous occasion, the band have announced a huge North American tour to kick off this September.

Along for the ride on this epic trek are Swedish military metallers Sabaton, whose epic songs about Panzer tanks and Scandinavian guardsmen will undoubtedly go over well with Priest’s audience. The tour kicks off in Reading, PA, of all places, and then makes its way to the west coast and back again.
