The legendary ILL NIÑO will bring a dose of Latin metal to Texas this summer with the “Ill Texas Familia” tour, also featuring Upon A Burning Body (El Paso only), King 810, Incite, Evolution Empire and Born In Blood.
Following the summer shows, ILL NIÑO will participate in Orlando’s Warlando Festival supporting metal masters Judas Priest and Blueridge Rockfest in Lynchburg, VA, the following day, featuring a monster lineup including Five Finger Death Punch, P.O.D., Sevendust, Limp Bizkit, and many more.
“I’m psyched for ILL NIÑO to be returning to live music,” says founding member Dave Chavarri. “Playing live for me is my lifeline, and the only thing that keeps me sane. Our team is in the process of booking some amazing tours for the remainder of 2021, and 2022. We’ve missed you all, see you all on the road.”
