Bowling For Soup are returning to the UK, and soon! The Grammy nominated, Texan pop punk favourites, or more accurately, half of them – frontman Jaret Reddick and bassist Rob Felicetti – are heading over from the US in December of 2021 for eight shows here in their home away from home.
In the early 2010’s, Bowling For Soup’s Acoustic Tours became the stuff of legend. Long before bands like Blink-182 and All Time Low were coming over to the UK for special acoustic events, Bowling For Soup’s acoustic shows were selling out across all corners of the British Isles. More recently, frontman Jaret Reddick’s two Heartache and Hilarity solo acoustic tours have brought fans closer to BFS material than ever before with the part concert, part stand up, part stories behind the songs setup going down a treat with fans.
For 2021, Jaret and Rob are switching it up once again, with the ultimate aim of seeing as many of their fans (the BFS Army) as possible, and to give them a special evening they won’t soon forget. Starting in Guildford and finishing in Bristol, this run of eight shows also includes a date at London’s famous 100 Club. The full list of shows is as follows:
Bowling For Soup UK Tour December 2021 – Acoustic Sing-A-Long With Jaret & Rob
7th – The Boilerroom – Guildford
8th – The 100 Club – London
9th – The Leadmill – Sheffield
10th – The Parish – Huddersfield
11th – The Sugarmill – Stoke
12th – Chinnery’s – Southend
13th – The Junction – Cambridge
14th – Thekla – Bristol
Here’s Bowling For Soup’s main man Jaret Reddick on being very excited to get back to the UK and what the shows will look like:
“My last few acoustic tours have been filled with emotion, heartbreak, heartache and a bit of funny…this tour is ALL about fun! We’ve all been locked away and separated in our own ways…time to come together and have a Bowling For Soup sing along! All the hits! The fan favorites! And the ones we all sing in the shower!”
