Judas Priest has postponed their remaining dates on their U.S. tour following the hospitalization of guitarist Richie Faulkner.

The band released a statement that reads as follows:

“It is with deep regret that we have to postpone the rest of our US Tour – Richie has major medical heart condition issues which have landed him in hospital where he is being treated – in the meantime we are all sending love to our Falcon to wish him a speedy recovery…

As soon as we have any updates from his doctors on when we can reschedule the dates we will of course announce them – tickets will be valid.”

We send our thoughts to Faulkner as he recovers and can’t wait to see him back on stage in the near future.

It is with deep regret that we have to postpone the rest of our US Tour – Richie has major medical heart condition...
