It’s time for everyone to attend Punk Rock 101! Bowling For Soup are returning to the UK and it’s for their biggest UK headline tour ever.
Resurrecting the “Get Happy” tour from a decade ago sounds like a good idea to us, as the original Get Happy tour brought us bands like The Bloodhound Gang and Zebrahead. This time around, for The Get Happy Tour 2018 in addition to Bowling For Soup headlining (obviously), BFS are joined by the comedy rocking, crimefighting superpowers of The Aquabats!, and the tour will be opened by original Get Happy Tour alumni Army Of Freshmen. That’s not all though.
Bowling For Soup are going to be playing their breakthrough smash hit album Drunk Enough To Dance IN FULL every night of The Get Happy Tour 2018. So whether your favourite song is their hit single Girl All The Bad Guys Want, or one for the hardcore fans like Life After Lisa or Surf Colorado, this is the tour for you.
The Get Happy Tour 2018 plays nine shows across the UK in February 2018, finishing up at London’s Brixton Academy. Oh, and there’s the small matter of Bowling For Soup’s first ever UK arena headline show the night before London, at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena. Full details of the tour dates follow:
