UGLY KID JOE To Open For JUDAS PRIEST In Virginia Beach

As special guests to Judas Priest, Ugly Kid Joe will appear at the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater in Virginia Beach.

After a 25-year absence from playing live in North America, UGLY KID JOE will make their long-awaited return to American soil on September 9, 2021.

As special guests to JUDAS PRIEST, UGLY KID JOE will appear at the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater in Virginia Beach.

UGLY KID JOE frontman Whitfield Crane comments: “In 1992 Rob Halford came into the studio when we were recording ‘America’s Least Wanted’ and sang on ‘Goddamn Devil’ and blew our fucking minds. As lifelong PRIEST fans, we are stoked to share a stage with the Metal Gods!”

After a 15-year hiatus, UGLY KID JOE reformed in 2012 and has toured extensively throughout Europe and the rest of the world, including festival appearances at the likes of Hellfest, Graspop Metal Meeting, Download, Sweden Rock Festival and Wacken Open Air.

The band released the EP “Stairway To Hell” in 2012 and the full-length “Uglier Than They Used Ta Be” in 2015. UGLY KID JOE is due to drop a new album in 2022.
