HALFORD CONFIRMS NEW YEARS PERFORMANCES

NEW YORK - The Metal God - Rob Halford - is making a triumphant return to the stage with three nights of Heavy Metal Thunder.

Halford's debut on Sunday, December 29th, 2002 at Mandalay Bay's House of Blues in Las Vegas, N.V., Canes in San Diego on New Years Eve, and House of Blues in Anaheim, Calif., Thursday, January 2nd, 2003 will be the band's first U.S. dates in more than two years. Heavy Metal fans are gearing up for the loud evenings, which also feature Thrash Metal veterans Testament, Vio-lence and Exhumed.

Rob Halford returned to his musical Metal roots with the release of his critically and commercially acclaimed 2000 release Resurrection. Considered to be the best recording Judas Priest never made, Resurrection catapulted Halford onto 100 stages world wide -- culminating in their co-headline appearance with Iron Maiden at last year's Rock In Rio Festival in Brazil. The band performed for more than 200,000 fist-pumping fans, and then they disappeared into the studio, completing one of Metal's best live recordings, 2001's Halford - Live Insurrection, only to turn around and begin 14 months of work on the follow up studio release to Resurrection.

Late this summer, Halford debuted their stunning new studio release, Crucible, to an anxious and very loyal Metal community and then went on hiatus to recover from the past couple years’ schedule. Worldwide, The Metal God's devout fans have anointed Crucible as one of Rob's most creative works -- absolutely the finest of his post-Priest career.

Rob Halford's career spans more than 30 years in the recording industry. Most can't shake his dangerous image as the legendary, leather-clad screamer for Metal giants Judas Priest. Hundreds of thousands of fans are looking forward to filling up venues around the world once more to sing along with The Metal God and his anthemic mainstays "Breaking The Law," "You've Got Another Thing Coming" and vicious classics like "Painkiller" and "Made In Hell."

Halford have also confirmed their much-anticipated return to Japan, with dates scheduled for February 2003. North America and Canada are finally within the band's sights as well, with another impressive lineup expected to begin work with Halford in March 2003.

“I can’t wait to get on stage in front of our audience,” said Halford. “The band has a punishing set prepared for those willing to step up. By the time they get through the strong lineup of extreme metal bands also on the bill, we'll get on the boards and unleash nearly two dozen hits covering the Priest, Fight and Halford catalogues.”
