JUDAS PRIEST have slammed as false an "official" announcement on a British hard rock web site that the group are reuniting with ex-vocalist Rob Halford for an upcoming album and tour in 2003. "Please ignore the so called 'official' announcement in PowerPlay magazine about a reunion — this is not true and definitely NOT OFFICIAL!!" PRIEST Management Co-ordinator Jayne Andrews wrote on the band's official web site. "I really don't know where these people get this sort of thing from but it is not us!! Why don't they contact me? I represent Glenn Tipton, K.K. Downing, Ian Hill, Scott Travis and Ripper Owens — JUDAS PRIEST!! Also think about it if ever there was a reunion don't these people realize that WE would announce it to the world!!! There is no talk of any reunion so please ignore this!"
