Three giants of the British heavy metal scene will reportedly hit the road together later this year following the release of Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest and Motorhead tickets for the first date of the Monsters Tour.
Brazilian promoters Hits Entretenimento recently confirmed on their official Facebook page that the trio of rock veterans will share the stage at Porto Alegre’s Zequinha Stadium on April 30, with Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest and Motorhead tickets for several more shows expected to go on sale in the near future.
The Prince of Darkness and co. will also perform alongside the likes of KISS, Coal Chamber, Steel Panther, Rival Sons and Black Veil Brides at the Sao Paulo leg of the Monsters in Rock Festival on the weekend of Apr 25/26, but it won’t be the first time that the three artists have appeared on the same bill.
Osbourne and Judas Priest both played a Monsters of Rock Event at Calgary’s McMahon Stadium back in 2008, while Lemmy’s outfit famously opened up for the former on his 1980/81 Blizzard of Ozz Tour.
All three acts are coming off the back of their most successful albums since their respective heydays. As frontman of the reunited Black Sabbath, Osbourne scored the first US number one album of his career with 2013’s 13; Judas Priest achieved their highest ever peak on the Billboard 200 when they reached No.6 with last year’s Redeemer of Souls; while Motorhead’s 2013 LP, Aftershock, was their biggest-selling in the States since 1992’s March or Die.
Those lucky enough to get their hands on Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest and Motorhead tickets should of course look forward to hearing some of the most anthemic metal hits of all time including “Shot In The Dark,” “Breaking The Law” and “Ace of Spades.”
