JUDAS PRIEST: 'Things Are Going Incredibly Well On Tour'

JUDAS PRIEST Management Co-Ordinator Jayne Andrews has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

"Things are going incredibly well on the tour. The band have just finished two weeks of shows in the U.K. It was great for them to play in their own country again! It's been many years since they've had the pleasure of doing that together!!

"I will be putting some photos from the tour up on the website very soon and would like you to participate with us by sending in your questions for the band. Every now and again I'll ask a band member to answer them and we'll post them on the site!!

"The band are back in Europe now for another two weeks of shows then it's a short break before they leave for Japan!! I have announced the first of the U.S. dates. More to follow shortly!!"
