Pop punk fans across the UK rejoice – Bowling For Soup are coming back to their home away from home! Having previously suggested that their 2013 “BFS Bids Farewell” tour was to be their last full scale UK trek, we’re very pleased to report things have changed!
The Bowling For Soup “How About Another Round” Tour will travel the length of England, Scotland and Wales for the first half of February 2016, starting in Glasgow on the 1st of February and finishing in Cardiff on the 15th playing fifteen shows total. The biggest show on the tour will be a stop at London’s world famous Camden Town Roundhouse venue.
BFS frontman Jaret Reddick explains why Bowling For Soup are able to make a more substantial return to the UK than was once expected:
“On the Farewell Tour, we made it clear that “farewell” wasn’t “goodbye”…We had over extended ourselves for two decades and we needed a break. I don’t ever expect BFS to go away, but we had to make some changes to our touring schedule if things were going to move forward in a productive and positive manner. It really has been good being able to catch our breath. I feel like our shows are even better than they were a few years back, and I think the US audience seeing us now would agree…We cannot wait to get back to the UK…The country that, literally, is responsible for our worldwide success and longevity…How about another round?!?!?!?”
