Judas Priest was scheduled to perform tonight (June 5) in Colorado Spring, Col. but were forced to cancel the show due to Rob Halford battling bronchitis.
Priest issued the following statement that reads, “We are very sorry to say that Rob Halford has been fighting bronchitis for over a week and now doctors have told him he needs full rest so his voice can recover – therefore tomorrow’s Judas Priest concert at Broadmoor World Arena, Colorado Springs has unfortunately been cancelled. We did not want to cancel this show but Rob’s health must come first – we are so sorry to disappoint our fans but THE PRIEST WILL BE BACK to Colorado Springs at a later date – until then refunds for all tickets will be available at point of purchase.”
Priest’s next gig is currently set for June 8 in Saskatoon, Canada. So far the show is still on as scheduled. In the meantime, here’s to the Metal God getting plenty of rest so he can return to the stage.
