Judas Priest Won't End With Farewell Tour
While the tour had been billed at Judas Priest's "farewell tour," members are shifting from that absolute: "It's not the end of the band, by any means," Glenn Tipton said, as transcribed by Blabbermouth.net. "It is our last world tour. It takes a big chunk of your life – 18 months, really, of being out there. We've been doing it for nearly 40 years now. It's not to say that it will be our last shows, and we certainly will [be] – and have been – recording, so chances are that there will be a [new] album as well next year. We would never turn down the appropriate date if we were offered it at some point in the future, but it will be our last world tour…"
When asked about Richie Faulkner's addition to the band, Tipton replied, "…if we hadn't found Richie, I don't think we would be going out [on tour] right now." more on this story
