There have been lots of rumors online stating Iron Maiden and Judas Priest will be touring soon.
This was addressed by Rob Halford in a new interview with Consequence Of Sound.
“I think both bands would look to do that”
“It’s all about the timing of doing such a thing. We’re good friends.”
Today in a new interview on SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation”, IRON MAIDEN mastermind Steve Harris discussed the possibility.
Steve Harris says that he is not opposed to IRON MAIDEN sharing the stage with JUDAS PRIEST.
“It’s funny because I saw [Halford‘s comments in the media] myself. And also, apparently someone today said that [JUDAS PRIEST bassist] Ian Hill said something about it as well. So, I don’t know. I suppose the management has gotta get their heads together and [make] something like that [happen]. But, yeah, why not? I suppose the fans can push for it to happen. But we’ll see.”
He further talked about the Judas Priest Iron Maiden tour in 1981, saying:
“[I have] lots of good memories.”
“And I really love that album, ‘Point Of Entry’. Some people don’t think it’s their favorite PRIEST album. But I suppose ’cause we were on tour [with PRIEST when they were supporting] it, I really liked it.”
Legendary Iron Maiden have been on tour for more than 2 years now after the release of their last studio album. Iron Maiden celebrated the success of the album with a world tour with a phenomenal production. On the other side, Judas Priest released a successful record titled ‘Firepower’ which cracked billboards and other charts worldwide. Judas Priest have been on tour for more than a year since the release of the record. Priest main songwriter Glenn Tipton hasn’t joined the band live for more than a few dates since last year. It’s interesting to hear that there’s a possibility of an epic tour featuring Iron Maiden and Judas Priest along with thrash legends Testament.
