Tim Ripper Owens issues an update

Vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens (BEYOND FEAR / ex-JUDAS PRIEST) has issued the following update:

"Hey all!!!

OK, a few things. First off, the Mexican tour is going great, the fans are great and the shows have been a load of fun! John and the guys from MANDARINA have just been killer, Mexico City here we come!

My short solo run in Europe was a success (wish I could do more, believe me it isn't my fault there isn't more shows), thanks to John, David Ellefson, Chris Caffery, and Simon Wright! The shows opening for HEAVEN & HELL just ruled. A big thanks to those guys for treating us all so good and making us part of the family. And Sweden Rock was great (as always) and the Download Festival was out of control. Got to see some old friends and hang out and have a blast, and the shows were just amazing (see part of it on VH1 Classic's That Metal Show). I hope to tour the US, but don't hold your breath!

On that note, look at my tour schedule. Got HAIL! shows in September, solo shows in South America in October/November, and the first week of August I will be cranking out the vocals for Richard Christy's CD. YEAH MAN! Look for more info to come!

Thanks to Samson Wireless, Akron Guitar Center and Monster Energy for all the support! Also thanks for all the great reviews on my solo CD, it has been the best received CD I have done and that means a lot! Keep checking my MySpace for news and new merchandise!!"

Keep it heavy,
