Teaming up with British heavy metal legends, Judas Priest, who are gearing up for their final world tour, Bay Area thrash metalers, Exodus, will be opening for the Metal Gods on August 10th at the Metal Hammer Festival being held in Katowice, Poland.

Exodus guitarist, Gary Holt has recently been filling in for Slayer’s Jeff Hanneman, who had to tend to a flesh-eating disease most likely caused by a spider bite.

Exodus will also be performing at the Ieperfest in Belgium and Rock im Betonwerk in Germany. And you thought old people were boring.

Judas Priest To Perform Fan Selected Tracks from All Albums on Farewell Tour

Posted by jillettinger on Thursday, February 17, 2011 at 12:48 PM (PST)

As aging (but still bad-ass rocking) heavy metalers, Judas Priest keep announcing more tour dates for their final “Epitaph” road trip, the Metal Gods are asking fans to submit tracks they’d like to see performed live.

In a note to fans on their Web site, the Priest announced that they are planning on possibly doing at least one track from every album. Wow. We can assume they’re looking for obscure nominations, as the band will surely be performing all their classics.
