Rob Halford previously said Judas Priest were putting together a special celebration for their 50th anniversary next year. Now, during a chat with Metal Kaoz, Richie Faulkner was asked about the band’s plans and he responded with the following:
“Obviously, I do have some idea of what is being talked about, but it is at the very early stages at the moment and I do not want to give anything away. But as Rob said, this is a fantastic milestone for the band and, again, the fans have put PRIEST there for all this time. This acknowledges the fans more than anything, so it will be all about giving back to them; an event that the fans will really remember. It is in progress and we are talking about what we want to do, but in true JUDAS PRIEST fashion, it is going to be something everyone will remember. We want to give back to the fans because, as I said, they have put the band there for nearly 50 years and they are still coming to the shows, they still love the band, so yeah, it will be something special.
