Celebrated Swedish metal battalion SABATON will make their awaited return to the frontlines this fall on a massive U.S. campaign with the legendary JUDAS PRIEST for their “50 Heavy Metal Years Tour.” The year’s heaviest tour will take place in September and October and will follow SABATON’s upcoming Russian invasion in March and European festivals in late summer, including their own Sabaton Open Air in Sweden in August. For information on tickets visit: www.sabaton.net/tour SABATON bassist Pär Sundström comments: “It’s a great honour for us to be special guests to one of the most influential metal bands of all time, for a very special tour. We received a lot of requests from the USA that fans wanted to see us return after the successful tour we did last year and here we are, in great company.” SABATON’s global assault continues in support of their latest album, “The Great War,” that’s out now from Nuclear Blast. The record has been lauded by fans and critics since its debut on worldwide charts last summer, and features numerous colossal singles like 'Great War', '82nd All The Way', 'Fields of Verdun' and 'The Red Baron'.
