JUDAS PRIEST Frontman On 'Metal Masters' Tour: 'We Insisted On A Classic Metal Package'

JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford spoke to Greg Prato of Billboard.com about the bands' first "The Metal Masters Tour" this summer, which will also feature HEAVEN AND HELL, MOTRHEAD and TESTAMENT.

"We insisted on a classic metal package which is what we've got I will enjoy seeing all the bands," Halford tells Billboard.com.

As previously reported, JUDAS PRIEST plans to perform its upcoming album, "Nostradamus", in its entirety during a fall headlining tour, but the band will debut some of the new songs during "Metal Masters". Starting today (April 21), fans can download the title track for free through the Live Nation site.

Halford promises the "Metal Masters" sets will feature "a combination of PRIEST classics including songs from our catalog never before played live."
