Updated Tim “Ripper” Owens tour details
Misformusic - almost 5 years
For the first time solo in Australia and New Zealand, Tim Ripper Owens performing Judas Priest classics, along with tracks from DIO, ICED EARTH, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN plus his own solo projects.
Owens is without doubt among the most important metal vocalists of the past fifteen years. When he joined JUDAS PRIEST in May 1996, succeeding Rob Halford, the press rubbed their eyes, surprised as well as impressed: Owens had previously been a fairly unknown singer to international music journalists with only a few aware of him from his band WINTERS BANE but he recorded his first PRIEST album, the Grammy-nominated “Jugulator” (1997) with more aplomb than even insiders had expected. Following successful tours with the British metal legends, the strong studio recording “Demolition” (2001), and the live recordings, “Meltdown – 98 Live” (1998) and “Live In London” (2003) were released as well as the movie “Rockstar”, which was loosely based on Tim’s experience with JUDAS PRIEST.
