Rob Halford said Judas Priest is in discussion about how to mark their 50th anniversary in 2019. Judas Priest have sold more than 50 million album sales since they were formed in1969 — bassist Ian Hill is the only member who’s been with the band since the start. Halford said: “We’re already having these discussions every now and again in the band and with our label and with our promoters and management. We have some ideas, and when we get close to solidifying something, we’ll let you guys know. It’s going to be a great year. What a celebration – another incredible milestone for Judas Priest that we’re looking forward to sharing with everybody.” The band will soon be touring throughout the U.S. with Deep Purple.
