British heavy metal legends JUDAS PRIEST have confirmed a June 22 concert at at Ijsselhal in Zwolle, Holland.For a list of upcoming JUDAS PRIEST shows, go to this location. JUDAS PRIEST is strongly rumored to be teaming up with HEAVEN AND HELL, MOTRHEAD and TESTAMENT for a U.S. tour this summer. Several unconfirmed dates for the trek were recently leaked via Pollstar.com, the companion web site of the concert industry's leading trade publication. In an interview with "The Classic Metal Show" (listen to the audio below beginning around the 3:15 mark) which aired on March 29, JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford stated about the rumored trek with HEAVEN AND HELL, MOTRHEAD and TESTAMENT, "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."
