Check out this poster and prepare to sink into a pit of utter depression. It seems 2009’s Priest Feast is heading everywhere next year…apart from Newcastle.

Now it’s not the first time Tyneside has been missed off a major rock tour in recent years but things had been looking up with most of the major shows stopping off at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena. 

Sadly Cardiff and Nottingham seem to have trumped us this time around as Judas Priest, Megadeth and Testament prepare to blow the brains out of metallers across the UK. But it’s OK, we’re still getting New Kids On The Block…

By the way these dates have yet to be confirmed. But I doubt the promoters would fork out on finished posters if there was any doubt!
