It’s been 25 years since Ugly Kid Joe last toured North America, but now the band is making its live return to the U.S., and they’re doing it as support for metal legends: Judas Priest.

“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,” says Ugly Kid Joe frontman Whitfield Crane. “As lifelong Priest fans, we are stoked to share a stage with the metal Gods!”

The event will take place on Sept. 9, 2021 at the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater in Virginia Beach.

Ugly Kid Joe regrouped in 2012 after a 15-year hiatus and began releasing new music and resumed touring activities just about everywhere else in the world except for the U.S. The band is planning to release a new album later this year.
