Judas Priest has added another U.S. leg to the band's ongoing 50 Heavy Metal Years tour.

The newly announced fall outing will run from October 13 in Wallingford, Connecticut, to November 29 in Houston, Texas. Queensryche will also be on the bill.

"Defending the heavy metal faith for 50 years, the Priest is back!" says frontman Rob Halford.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 24, at 10 a.m. local time. For the full list of dates and all ticket info, visit JudasPriest.com.

Priest first launched the 50 Heavy Metal Years tour, which celebrates the "Breaking the Law" icons' 50th anniversary, in 2021 after being postponed from 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, Halford and company are set to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year with the Musical Excellence Award. The 2022 Induction Ceremony takes place November 5 in Los Angeles.
