One of The UK’s most loved bands and friends of Rocksins, Bowling For Soup, tonight, on October 14th 2012 begin the One Big Happy tour which is also their 30th visit to the UK.
Bringing with them their friends The Dollyrots and Patent Pending for this landmark visit, Bowling For Soup kick off the One Big Happy tour in Newcastle and will be taking it all over the UK & Ireland for the next two weeks before the tour finally wraps up in Cambridge on the 28th of October. For those who are wondering why there is no London date it’s because BFS are taking part in the first UK return of the Vans Warped Tour for 12 years. The Warped Tour takes place at London’s Alexandra Palace on November 10th.
To celebrate the tour all three bands have collaborated on the “One Big Happy” album which sees all the bands covering each others’ songs, along with some exclusive new tracks never released anywhere else before and a special duet between Bowling For Soups’ Jaret Reddick and Kelly O of the Dollyrots. The One Big Happy album is out now on Brando Records. Full tour date information follows below:
