Bowling For Soup’s UK return is fast appearing over the horizon, with the How About Another Round tour less than three months away. With The Dollyrots and Lacey already on board to help provide an enormously fun filled show, that would be enough to keep most people happy – but Bowling For Soup have now gone and upped the ante even further.
They’ve enlisted the services of their good friend and self professed “post punk laptop rapper”, MC Lars, to open the tour and compere each evening, also performing between the other bands sets to keep everyone entertained continuously throughout the whole night!
Here’s what Bowling For Soup’s singer Jaret Reddick had to say about Lars joining the tour:
“I will never forget hearing “Signing Emo” for the first time. I said to our label rep, Howie Abrams, “I don’t care what I have to do, I want that kid on tour with us immediately!!! “
Lars had already been to the UK a time or two when we took him with us on the 2005 US tour…He was so young and excited about every little thing…We had him on our bus, and I am pretty sure, he saw some stuff he never thought he would see!
We would later take him out in the US and UK several times…He is now a seasoned pro, that has his shit figured out!
I have always wanted to have a real MC at a show in the UK…When Lars and I discussed the idea and he was actually thinking the same thing….Well…We got an MC!!! Can’t wait for February!!!”
