Judas Priest announced last week that they were planning to perform their upcoming tour as a four-piece, dropping live guitarist Andy Sneap from the lineup. Sneap then released his own statement, saying it was “incredibly disappointing after this amount of time” he spent in the band but respected the decision and would still be a part of the team working on Judas Priest‘s new album.
Now Judas Priest has reversed their decision and has added Sneap back into their live lineup.
“Hello metal maniacs… given all that has recently evolved and transpired we have decided unanimously as a band to continue our live shows unchanged with Rob, Ian, Richie, Scott, Andy, and Glenn joining us whenever he’s able…so see you all soon as we forge ahead celebrating 50 massive heavy metal years of Judas Priest together!”
Sneap has been filling in with Judas Priest since 2018 when longtime guitarist Glenn Tipton announced he wouldn’t tour anymore due to his worsening Parkinson’s disease. Catch Judas Priest at one of the dates below with Queensrÿche.
