Why See Bowling for Soup and Reel Big Fish?
A match made in punk rock heaven
Calling all punk rock fans! Get ready to throw up your rock hands and break out your best skanking shoes for this super awesome co-headlining tour as two of the biggest names in ska and punk rock hit the road this summer together - for the first time ever.
Alongside special guests Nerf Herder (6/19 - 6/ 29) and MEST (7/21 - 8/03) these two '90s and '00s titans will be bringing the noise on an extensive jaunt one that Jarret Reddick of 'Bowling promises to be 'Two of the most fun bands on the planet together at last. People will have sore faces from smiling after this one.' We can't wait!
Bowling for Soup
If you need a dose of unpretentious, instantly catchy pop-punk, then there are few better bands to see than Bowling for Soup. The quintet formed in the 1990s, and spent much of the decade cultivating a small but loyal following as their contemporaries (Green Day et al) took over the world. Bowling for Soup's time to shine on the big stage finally arrived in 2002 with the release of their fourth record Drunk Enough to Dance, which contained the monster hit single 'Girl All the Bad Guys Want.'
Reel Big Fish
The go-to ambassadors of Ska punk for 28 years, Reel Big Fish burst on the mainstream with 1997's Sell Out, defining the genre's Third Wave. Known for their high-energy stage presence and ability to get even the grumpiest concertgoer on the dance floor, they've enjoyed a cult following that keeps them out on the road year on year. Riding high off their latest release, Life Sucks...Let's Dance, their first album since 2012, the band, led by Aaron Barrett are truly the scene's living legends!
Performance date: 22 July 2019
