BROOKLYN (July 7, 2014) –  Metal icons Judas Priest will bring the “Redeemer of Souls Tour 2014” to Barclays Center on Thursday, October 9. The band is touring in support of its 17th studio album overall, 'Redeemer of Souls.' Special guest Steel Panther will also play.

Already, 'Redeemer of Souls' is creating a deafening pre­release buzz, largely due to overwhelmingly positive reviews:

"The word 'epic' is thrown around too often in the world of music, but Judas Priest's new album 'Redeemer of Souls' is, in fact, truly epic. From Rob Halford's powerful vocals to Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner's monster riffs and soaring guitar solos, 'Redeemer of Souls' takes listeners on a fantastical metal journey from beginning to end." ­­Loudwire

Comprised of Rob Halford (vocals), Glenn Tipton (guitar), Richie Faulkner (guitar), Ian Hill (bass), and Scott Travis (drums), Judas Priest is responsible for some of heavy metal's all-time classic songs ("Living After Midnight," "Breaking the Law," "You've Got Another Thing Coming," etc.) and albums ('British Steel,' 'Screaming for Vengeance,' 'Painkiller,' etc.).
