ROB HALFORD On JUDAS PRIEST's Upcoming European Tour With OZZY OSBOURNE - "Most 70 Year Olds Are Retired On The Beach In Florida, Sipping A Mimosa... We’re Gonna Go Out And Assault The World Again"
October 20, 2021, a month ago
Heavy Consequence has released a new interview with Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford, in which the Metal God discusses the band’s new 50 Heavy Metal Years Of Music box set, staying relevant after half a century, meeting Andy Warhol, rivalries with other bands, his bond with his bandmates past and present, Priest's next album, and more.
On Judas Priest’s twice-delayed European tour with Ozzy Osbourne, which is scheduled to kick off in January 2022, Halford says: "Please God, let it happen. We love Ozzy so much. I know Ozzy’s been through some recent surgery work, too. It’s an important set of shows. We’re neighbours, from the same place [Birmingham, England], so it’s got a lot of great feelings for us - especially when we get to do the home dates. You know, most 70 year olds are retired on the beach in Florida, sipping a mimosa. We’re gonna go out and assault the world again, which is what we love to do."
