It is with regret that Judas Priest Announce that K.K. Downing has formally retired from the band and will therefore not be joining them on their forthcoming Epitaph Tour.
The band respects his decision and naturally wishes him well.
Having thought long and hard about how to proceed, Rob, Glenn, Ian and Scott unanimously agreed that they should go ahead with the tour, and not let the fans down around the world.
Fate also stepped in and delivered the perfect replacement – 31 Year old British guitar player Richie Faulkner. He has blended into the band perfectly and is a great talent who is going to help set the stage on fire!
The Epiaph Tour will include songs from every studio album and also tracks they have never performed on stage plus all the old favorites.
With a new album due to be released next year, the Metal Gods are preparing to tour the planet once more. Heavy Metal at Its best complete with lasers, lights, bikes and hellfire!! It’s a show not to be missed!!
