Judas Priest to tour South Africa in 2019


Big Concerts confirmed today that Judas Priest will be coming to South Africa for the very first time performing in Cape Town on 20 March 2019 at Grand Arena, GrandWest and 22 March 2019 in Johannesburg at the Ticketpro Dome.

There are few heavy metal bands that have managed to scale the heights that Judas Priest has during their 40-year career. Formed in the early ’70s in Birmingham, England, Priest was one of the first metal bands to exclusively wear leather and studs – a look that began during this era and would eventually be embraced by metalheads throughout the world. Judas Priest went on to change the face of heavy metal. A 2010 Grammy Award win for ‘Best Metal Performance, a 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination, the current album ‘Firepower’ released in March 2018 has become the highest ­charting album of their career plus scorching their way around the world in sell-out shows on the Firepower tour has cemented the presence and influence of Judas Priest at an all-time high!
