Pollstar.com the companion web site of the concert industry's leading trade publication has released what appear to be several dates for the forthcoming North American tour featuring HEAVEN AND HELL, JUDAS PRIEST, MOTRHEAD and TESTAMENT.

Although there has been no official confirmation regarding the much-rumored trek, Pollstar.com is currently listing the following TESTAMENT arena dates during the month of August: (***UPDATE: The dates have since been removed from the Pollstar.com web site.***)

Aug. 07 - Bristow, VA @ Nissan Pavilion At Stone Ridge
Aug. 09 - Holmdel, NJ @ PNC Bank Arts Center
Aug. 10 - Wantagh, NY @ Nikon At Jones Beach Theater
Aug. 13 - Toronto, ON @ The Molson Amphitheatre
Aug. 15 - Uncasville, CT @ Mohegan Sun
Aug. 16 - Burgettstown, PA @ Post-Gazette Pavilion
Aug. 18 - Clarkston, MI @ DTE Energy Music Theatre
Aug. 19 - Tinley Park, IL @ First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre

**IMPORTANT**: The above-listed dates were provided by Pollstar and should be treated as a *rumor only* until officially confirmed by the bands involved with the tour or the tour's organizers, Live Nation.

In an interview with "The Classic Metal Show" (listen to the audio below beginning around the 3:15 mark) which aired this past Saturday (March 29), JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford stated about the trek, "Live Nation are promoting the tour, and I guess the professional way of dealing with this is to say that Live Nation will be making an official announcement probably a few days from now. But it's difficult to keep that kind of thing quiet 'cause If it does happen, and it's looking very real, it's gonna be one of the biggest metal shows in the States this year. . . You have to wait for the official announcement because it has to be sanctioned by management and the lawyers in the suits and that other rubbish. But if we get what we are hoping to get, I think it's gonna be an absolutely sensational, killer American tour 'cause it won't happen anywhere else in the world, this lineup. It'll just be for the States."
