Jason Bullinger For Alternative Revolt

Judas Priest has announced that it will perform at next year’s Wacken Open Air Festival on July 30, 2020 – August 1, 2020 in Wacken, Germany. The British heavy metal icons will celebrate it’s 50th-anniversary.

Bassist Ian Hill: “Technically, the 50th anniversary is this year, but we weren’t called JP until 1970, so we thought we’d leave it till next year. There’s a few ideas in the pipeline, but nothing solid yet, apart from the fact that we will tour. We’ve got some work to do with Ozzy[Osbourne] at the beginning of next year, January-February, which is the canceled shows from this year. Ozzy got sick and wasn’t able to do those shows. After that, we’ll start with the 50-year celebrations and we’ll be around again playing… Well, we’re not sure what we’ll be playing, but it’ll be cool.”
