This was obviously an April Fool's gag. For the full list of our 2016 jokes, head here.

Legendary metal act Judas Priest vowed to tour in every corner of the globe to spread the word of true metal. The band announced a string of tour dates in some of the most remote locations in the world. Dubbed, the "Golden Epitaph," the tour will launch with a performance at the Garvault Hotel in Sutherland, Scotland on July 1st and will come to an end on July 31st, with a performance at the Internet Cafe on the main island of Tristan da Cunha.

Vocalist Rob Halford commented: "I rarely read Facebook comments, but I scanned the Judas Priest page and it was filled with shouts from fans to come to their locations...'come to Botswana' and 'come to Indonesia' and the like. I turned to Glenn and we both agreed that the time was right to take Priest to the most remote locations in the world."

Confirmed dates and locations for the "Golden Epitaph" tour can be found on the poster below:
