Judas Priest are currently in the midst of their 50 Heavy Metal Years tour, which was postponed last fall after their guitarist, Richie Faulkner, suffered an aortic aneurysm onstage while performing with the band at the 2021 Louder Than Life festival.

Aside from the tour, Priest have also been working on their as-yet-untitled 19th studio album, which would be their first since 2018's Firepower.
