Latest information

Ugly Kid Joe rose to prominence in the early nineties. Irreverent and sarcastic, the band is known for their use of sardonic puns for their titles - even their very name is a reaction to the glam metal band Pretty Boy Floyd. Drawing influence from heavy rock and alternative metal whilst presenting an image of partying and slacker culture, they have continued to endure past the decade they typified as they resonate with ever younger audiences.

The snotty upstarts have just announced an important tour which sees them stop at Rescue Rooms in Nottingham, The Globe at Cardiff and Southampton’s Engine Rooms during September 2018.

The demand is growing so make sure you book your Ugly Kid Joe tickets before they all go. Gigantic makes booking your favourite gig tickets easy as you can place your order 24/7 using your tablet, smartphone or computer from the comfort of your home or while busy on the go.

With word spreading fast, it makes sense to set yourself ahead. We recommend that you set a personal reminder with Gigantic which means we will alert you with a text message or an email just prior to their release at 09:00 on Friday 6th of July.

Originally formed by childhood friends Whitfield Crane and Klaus Eichstadt during 1987 in Isla Vista, California. The band released their first EP As Ugly As They Wanna Be in 1991. The record contained their massive single Everything About You, it became double platinum and went on to become the biggest selling EP in America.

Their first album came out the next year. America’s Least Wanted was recorded in just two months to ensure they would be ready to play support for Ozzy Osbourne. Featuring Everything About You and their cover of Cat’s In The Cradle, the record hit #27 in the US charts upon its release in 1992 and also eventually reached double platinum sales.

The band would continue to tour the world and enjoy widening popularity with the release of their LPs Menace To Sobriety in 1995 and Motel California in 1996 before the original break-up of the band in 1997.

In 2010 Eichstadt announced it was the band’s intention to reunite. The band have subsequently released the 2012 EP Stairway To Hell and the 2015 LP Uglier Than They Used To Be.

Now you know, be sure to book your Ugly Kid Joe concert tickets before they sell out quickly - especially as we only have limited amounts being made available. Offering a wide selection of essential gig tickets plus excellent customer service helping you make your choice, Gigantic were appointed ‘Retail Business of the Year 2017’ by the Nottingham Post. We know 2018 will be an even better year as we continue to assist our customers in planning and enjoying their big night out!

Great night

Brilliant gig. Gin Annie were full of energy and warmed the crowd up well with their catchy tunes. Ugly kid Joe were spot on with the energy and sound I remember. I enjoyed this gig.

Awesome Night

Thoroughly enjoyable night. Love this band and saw the in London a few years ago. The added bonus was also seeing the lead singers support band which was very Ozzy Osbourne is style. Overall, great intimate gig and old school rock at it's best - damn it i'm gonna start having guitar lessons. Now 40 it brought back a lot of memories when I was at secondary school and loving the band back then.

Ugly Kid Joe, Rescue Rooms, Nottingham - 3rd September 2018

Great venue. Good crowd. Easy to get served at the bar and staff were V polite. Phil Cambell and the BS were fantastic but I was disappointed with UKJ. They lacked energy-especially after the lively performance of PC and the BS.
