Judas Priest is taking requests for their final tour on their website.

When Judas Priest announced their final farewell world tour would commence this year back in the fall many metal fans were sad. However, there is a lot of reason to rejoice in the form what type of show this tour might bring and the promise of new Priest music soon as well. In a posting on their website yesterday the band writes “We are planning on possibly doing a track from every album throughout our careers in the set list, so let us know what your favorites are and maybe we'll pick some of them.”

This is great news because while the band did a tremendous job on the “British Steel Anniversary Tour” in 2009, there was a lack of depth in album cuts and some hits were omitted from the set list. Another exciting possibility is hearing Rob Halford tackle some of the Tim “Ripper” Owens-era album material, which Rob has said repeatedly he is open to. Fans who want to chime in with their requests can do so in the forums on their website here.

The band is also reportedly writing the follow-up to 2008's Nostradamus (Sony) concept album.
