Grand Rapids, Michigan's POP EVIL has been confirmed as the opening act for JUDAS PRIEST and WHITESNAKE on their upcoming North American tour.

POP EVIL has toured consistently since (and prior to) the release of its latest album, "Lipstick on the Mirror", with a combination of headline dates and special guest support with PUDDLE OF MUDD, TESLA, THEORY OF A DEADMAN, P.O.D. and SALIVA.

"We watch the bands opening for us," states bassist Matt DiRito, "and we not only remember what it was like for us in that slot. We know that band is warming up the crowd for us and in turn, there will always be something for us to learn from them."
