Meanwhile, guitarist Glenn Tipton posted this latest update on the group's activities on JUDAS PRIEST's official web site: 'As you know, the first segment of the tour has been announced, and we are now putting together the American dates and second leg of Europe, after which we will cross to South America and Japan, and then work on dates for the rest of the world! We're all excited about getting back on the road where PRIEST belong, playing old and new songs, and some tracks off the new album, which we are in the process of mixing. It's going to be difficult to finally decide what songs go in the 2001 set, as there are so many of our favorites and everyone's favorites, but we know that whatever we play, we'll give 200%!!! We can't wait to get on the road again, so hang in there and we'll see you all soon! Regards, GLENN TIPTON'
