TALLINN – The concert of British heavy metal act Judas Priest in Tallinn, scheduled for June 1 this year, will apparently be postponed, organizers said on Thursday.

Spokespeople for the organizer said that at present they have no definitive information about whether or not the concert will take place, whereas representatives for the band have informed that the whole tour is about to be reorganized.  

"We've heard that work is underway to rearrange the whole tour," spokespeople for the organizer of the Tallinn show told BNS.

The strategy for exiting the coronavirus crisis endorsed by the Estonian governmental committee on crisis management on Wednesday does not look promising with regard to any major international events taking place in Estonia this summer. The plan includes a possible plan to ease the restrictions in chronological and priority order, while noting that this will be done if the metrics that map the spread of the virus allow it.

Judas Priest is currently scheduled to perform at Tallinn Song Festival Grounds on June 1 as part of their "50 years Heavy Metal" tour celebrating the band's 50 years.
