Former Judas Priest Frontman Tim 'Ripper' Owens Announces Tour

(Classic Rock) Former Judas Priest frontman Tim 'Ripper' Owens has confirmed a 10-date UK tour next month. The solo shows feature support acts Past The Fall and Memories In Torment.

He recently recalled how he was given Rob Halford's job in Priest in 1996 after singing just one line, and that no other singer auditioned for the role that lasted until the original frontman's return in 2003.

Asked if he'd record with the metal icons again, Owens tells Rock Overdose: "I would, for sure. Not for the money, because I do better now, and I work a lot more.

"But for the good times. While I was in Priest it was like a family. We did everything together - and the hotels and bus was nicer. I miss my times with them, the stories, the beers and dinner. I miss just hanging with them." See the dates here.
