Original JUDAS PRIEST Singer Goes Camel-Riding; Prepares To Support SKID ROW, GRAHAM BONNET

Original JUDAS PRIEST singer Al Atkins (currently the frontman of THE HOLY RAGE) has issued the following update:

"After taking a well-earned break, we finally take to the road again this month starting with opening up for USA rockers SKID ROW at JB's Nightclub Dudley on the 25th.

"Last month saw me catching up with overdue interviews and adding new sections to the book I am writing with author Neil Daniels. I also went camel-riding in the North African desert whilst in Tunisia.

"More exciting gigs are coming in via 'Extreme Music', like December 13th at the Transylvanian Club in Milan, Italy. Also we play The Knitting Factory - Hollywood Boulevard, California on January 4th, playing alongside one of my all-time favourite vocalists Graham Bonnet and the TAZ TAYLOR BAND. Also on the bill is USA band IMAGIKA who we look forward to meeting up with. We also look forward in seeing Neil and Eileen from our endorsers Moser custom guitars in California.

"Starting in March 2008 we have been asked to guest on a six-week European tour with Graham Bonnet starting with 10 days in the UK taking in Scotland and Ireland then on returning we go back on tour in the USA."
