Judas Priest singer Rob Halford recently told Metal Pilgrim that Glenn is “still actively involved with Judas Priest, a hundred percent. Andy is still standing in that spot for Glenn with Glenn’s blessing… And my gratitude to Andy. It couldn’t have happened in a better way, if you wanna try and make something good out of it. It was a really important day when Glenn said, ‘I think it’s probably best if I step to the side and maybe we should let Andy come in.’ That was just a really beautiful act of selflessness. That’s Glenn treasuring Priest and Priest’s reputation, particularly in live concert more than anything else. So bless Glenn for that.”

Priest’s “50 Heavy Metal Years” tour starts September 8 in Reading, Pennsylvania and goes til November 5 in Hamilton, Ontario. Sabaton will serve as openers.
