Halford recently spoke with Stars and Stripes and offered words of encouragement for U.S. troops fighting the war on terrorism at home and abroad. Here are a few excerpts from the article:
“Right now, I have friends serving in Iraq, onboard the USS Stennis and in Guam, and the work they are doing is incredibly important, not only for America but the entire world. I fully support what they’re doing,” he said.
Halford, who cites San Diego as one of his favorite hangouts, said he became friends with many sailors and Marines from the nearby Navy bases and the sprawling Camp Pendleton.
“I’ve spent a lot of time in America and have several friends in the U.S. military all over the world,” said Halford.
GIs have always been big fans and supporters of Judas Priest and Halford’s three solo bands: Fight, Two and Halford.
“Everyone in the band supports all [the troops], and we sincerely wish them the best and a safe return home to their families,” he said.
Servicemembers in Europe and Japan will have a chance to catch the metal legends. Starting Wednesday, Judas Priest rolls through the United Kingdom for 11 shows.
From there, Priest will make stops in Holland, Germany, Poland, Austria, Italy, Portugal and will wrap up the European leg on April 17 with three dates in Spain. After a short break, the band heads to Japan and will play seven shows May 8-18. Plans are under way for a North American summer tour.
