QUEENSRŸCHE have been officially announced as the support act for JUDAS PRIEST on their rescheduled “50 Heavy Metal Years” North American tour dates in March-April 2022.
Ticketmaster confirms that dates will kick off on March 7 in West Valley City, Utah and conclude on April 11 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
A complete list of shows can be found on at this location.
QUEENSRŸCHE were originally slated to support SCORPIONS on their rescheduled “Sin City Nights” Las Vegas residency in March-April 2022 but apparently pulled out to hit the road with JUDAS PRIEST. SCORPIONS have since tapped SKID ROW as the new opening act for the Vegas residency.
JUDAS PRIEST were forced to postpone their North American run of dates on their rescheduled 50th-anniversary tour in late September when guitarist Richie Faulkner suffered an acute cardiac aortic dissection onstage at the Louder Than Life festival. He underwent a 10-hour surgery a short distance away at Rudd Heart and Lung Center at UofL Health – Jewish Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky.
