Following their highlight of the night performances at Reading and Leeds Festivals and celebrating their 25th anniversary as a band, Bowling For Soup are delighted to announce their return to their home away from home here in the UK. With a very special version of their biggest worldwide hit, Girl All The Bad Guys Want, becoming a viral sensation seventeen years after the track was first released, Jaret, Gary, Chris and Rob will be returning to the UK in early 2020 for a huge tour. Some very special guests will be along for the ride on one of Bowling For Soup’s biggest UK runs of shows to date.
Joining Bowling For Soup as their super special guests will be none other than Canadian pop punk band Simple Plan! Old friends from sharing stages together on both sides of the Atlantic, the “Together Again, You’re Welcome” tour is the first time Bowling For Soup and Simple Plan will have toured together in the UK since 2003! More recently they’ve shared the stage together in the US – both as featured acts on the final touring edition of The Vans Warped Tour in 2018, and as part of the Warped Forever weekenders earlier this Summer.
The “Together Again, You’re Welcome” tour will play six dates across England and Scotland in February 2020. Kicking off in Glasgow on February 10th, the tour includes Bowling For Soup’s biggest ever headline show in Manchester at The Victoria Warehouse on the 12th. There will also be a huge London Valentine’s Day love in at Brixton Academy, the location for the 2018 recording of BFS’s live album and DVD – Older, Fatter, Still The Greatest Ever.
