Judas Priest have postponed the remaining dates of their current North American tour, after guitarist Richie Faulkner was hospitalised for "major medical heart condition issues".

The British heavy metal legends performed at Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville, Kentucky on September 26, however, the rest of their 50 Heavy Metal Years Tour has been put on hold while the 41-year-old rocker is treated for serious complications with an ongoing heart condition.

The trek was due to end on November 5 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Tickets will remain valid for any rescheduled concerts. The band confirmed the news in a statement:

"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."

Judas Priest released their latest studio album, and 18th overall, 'Firepower', in 2018 via Columbia Records.
