Former Judas Priest guitarist K. K. Downing will perform at Bloodstock Open Air Festival next month.
The legendary axeman will play guitar with Ross the Boss on the Ronnie James Dio Stage at Bloodstock on Sunday 11th August.
The Ross the Boss Band centers on titular guitarist and lynchpin Ross "The Boss" Friedman, who was a founding member of both Manowar and The Dictators.
Friedman wrote on Facebook on Saturday (6th July): “We The RTB Band are SO F***ING EXCITED and honoured to have KK Downing, an immortal Metal legend, joining us onstage in front of some of the greatest metal fans in the world at BLOODSTOCK UK”
The Sunday line-up at Bloodstock Open Air also features Dee Snider, Queensrÿche and headliners Scorpions in what is their only UK show of 2019.
