JUDAS PRIEST TO RELEASE NEW STUDIO ALBUM
ON DECEMBER 28, 2004, ON EPIC RECORDS
Quite a few of you have been asking whether Judas Priest will be doing any
shows after they finish on the Ozzfest on 4th September, 2004. Please note we
won't be doing anymore shows this year - the guys will be finishing off the
album so we can deliver it in time for 28th December, 2004 release! We are
working on a World Tour starting early in 2005 (this will include the U.K.!!) and
will announce the dates as soon as we finalise them.
I've just got back from another few days out on the road with the Band - Judas Priest took Texas by storm!! It was great to be back! The Band's manager
Bill Curbishley flew in to join us for the San Antonio show - we all had a
great time! Afterwards, the Band, Bill and myself went out for dinner - it was
really good to have the Management team and the Band all together - we had a lot

We just want to put the record straight!!
Sorry! Sorry! Sorry! My mistake!!! - I had just flown back from the US with
photos from the Holmdel show and the one of Rob was in amongst them - I was
pretty jet-lagged when I scanned them in and sent them to my webmaster I wasn't
really looking too closely!! Thank you for pointing it out to me - actually it
was just a test to see how observant you all are!!!!!
The Ozzfest shows have been absolutely fantastic - the reaction to Judas
Priest has blown us all away!! I've just got back from a few days in the U.S.
with the guys - we had a great time - very, very busy what with specials on MTV,
VH1, Eddie Trunk, etc and lots of press and radio interviews including the UK
magazine Kerrang! - Oh! of course - and some incredible shows!!!!
I've just got back from being out with the Band for a few shows - we did two
fantastic shows in Spain - those Spanish fans certainly know how to show much
they love Judas Priest!! They were really great!! The Band did the last show
of this European leg at the Graspop festival in Belgium and now they are all
taking a short break before they start back out in the US.
A big thank you to all of Judas Priest's European fans for welcoming them
back so warmly and ecstatically!!
Unfortunately due to circumstances totally beyond Judas Priest's control
(technical problems with the venue) the show on Wednesday 23rd June, 2004 in
Grenoble has had to be cancelled - sorry to everyone who had bought tickets -
hopefully we'll be able to reschedule this show at some time in the future.
The Band have just done the most amazing show in Prague - the fans went
absolutely crazy!! Here are some shots from the show!!
Judas Priest are taking Europe by storm!! The reaction to the Band has been
absolutely amazing - the fans have been going wild - the Band playing better
than ever!! Yet again in Holland on Saturday bad weather nearly stopped the
show but the Band and crew fought against all of the elements and went on stage
to perform yet another spectacular performance!
Hi everyone - I've just got back from spending the first few days on the road
with the Band in Europe! The shows have been phenominal!! The Priest are
well and truly back!!
Well it has finally happened!! The band had their first rehearsal yesterday
(Monday 24th May) with the reunited line-up and it was fantastic!!! I was
with the guys so was very proud to be a part of it!!
We are in the process of adding a few extra dates during the Ozzfest - so far we have confirmed the following shows:

'METALOGY' BOX SET
Hi - Jayne here again! I haven't had a chance to post any messages on the board recently as I've
been up to my eyes what with sorting out the new record deal, arranging the world tour, working on
the boxset, sorting out studios, stage sets, stage clothes etc., etc., etc!! I had a flying visit
(literally!) to LA with Rob, Glenn and K.K. to participate in the Ozzfest press conference with
Ozzy and Sharon - that was great fun! Things are pretty hectic this end to say the least!!
More Judas Priest European Tour dates for June 2004 announced.
JUDAS PRIEST ANNOUNCE OZZFEST DATES!
It has come to our attention that yet again someone is trying to sell non
official Judas Priest product and making out it is official. Someone who calls
themself Zoom439 is trying to sell on Ebay an album entitled 'The Complete
Remastered Bonus Tracks' - this is not a certified release and will probably only
be a burned CDR of copyrighted material - it is illegal!! We have taken
action and have Sony's legal people onto this so please do not waste your money on
this inferior product. We see all the time so called 'original' autographed
items of the band for sale and most of the time these are not genuine. Be careful!!

Judas Priest has reigned supreme for 30 years as the most influential and commercially successful pure heavy metal band, and the masters are being honored with the career-spanning, four-CD, 65-track box set 'Metalogy' scheduled for release on May 3rd for Europe and the UK and May 4th 2004 for the US and Canada, by Sony Music/Legacy Records. The worldwide reverence for Judas Priest has resulted in sales of 20 million albums and countless sold-out concerts.
'Metalogy,' the first-ever Judas Priest box set, was assembled with the full participation of the band and it covers music recorded worldwide for the Gull, Sony Music/Columbia, CMC International, SPV, Atlantic and JVC labels between 1974 and 2002. Remastered hits, fan favorites, live rarities, B-sides and a previously unreleased demo are included. And as a bonus, the initial pressing of 'Metalogy' will include a live DVD of a complete concert filmed on December 12, 1982, at Mid South in Memphis, TN, on the 'Screaming for Vengeance' tour. This show was released on home video as 'Judas Priest Live' but it has been out of print for many years, and fans have often requested that it be reissued. This new DVD is mastered in pristine 5.1 Surround Sound for the ultimate Priest live concert experience.
Fans will be thrilled with the packaging of 'Metalogy.' The 7"x7" box is appropriately wrapped in leather and metal studs. The 7"x7" full color book features a full discography, biographical essay, timeline and numerous previously unpublished photos.
