HALFORD and TESTAMENT have announced plans to embark on a co-headlining U.S. tour in June/early July. The two groups will be covering many of the markets affected by the cancellation of The 2003 Metal Gods North American Tour, which was officially called off Friday (May 2) due to as-yet-undisclosed "contractual difficulties."
Says HALFORD manager John Baxter: "I've spoken at length with all bands on [The 2003 Metal Gods North American Tour]. Nearly all have commitments in June, etc., and have made their plans to return home.
"TESTAMENT's manager and I have agreed to recapture as many dates from [the cancelled The 2003 Metal Gods North American Tour] as possible. Sometime this/next week I will begin releasing confirmed West Coast tour dates, etc., for the following lineup:
+ Special Guest
"Depending on venue availabilities, etc., the bands will try and work through June/early July, covering as many of the formerly scheduled cities as we can. We will also look at adding some markets, which were not scheduled initially.
"More details to follow."
