Bowling For Soup And Simple Plan Have Announced A Tour Together
“In 2003, we toured with Simple Plan for the better part of a year,” says BFS frontman Jaret Reddick. “We brought them to the U.S. and then to the UK for our first really big headline tour. Both of us went on to do so much, running into one another on Warped tour and various festivals around the world. When the opportunity came to bring our original “little bros” back to the UK, we jumped at the chance! I am so stoked for these shows. Between the two of us, that’s a lot of hits!! Plus, watching Not Ur Girlfrenz do their thing is never not fun!!! Can. Not. Wait!!!”

“We are absolutely thrilled to once again tour the UK with our great friends and pop-punk heavyweights, Bowling For Soup!” adds Simple Plan’s Pierre Bouvier. “It’s crazy to think that the last time we played here together was 16 years ago. The fact that both of our bands are still here and playing bigger venues than ever before is absolutely incredible and we couldn’t be more grateful to all the fans in the UK who have supported us for all these years and made this tour possible. We can’t wait to play for you! See you at the shows!”
The bands will be joined by Not Ur Girlfrenz – and if that name rings a bell, it’s because their amazing 14-year-old drummer, Maren Alford, recently went viral after covering Slipknot’s Unsainted. Talented bunch all round, then.
