Fresh from their huge successful appearances at Slam Dunk Festival in Hatfield and Leeds, Bowling For Soup have announced their return to the UK. Much loved in their home-away-from-home here in the UK for over 20 years, the Grammy nominated Texan pop punk quartet will be heading back to our shores for eight shows in England, Scotland and Wales in February 2024.
Equally well known for their string of pop punk classic songs like Girl All The Bad Guys Want, 1985 and High School Never Ends and their legendary live performances, “BFS” – aka frontman Jaret Reddick, guitarist Chris Burney, bassist Rob Felicetti and drummer Gary Wiseman have put together a fantastic line up for the new UK tour.
Joining Bowling For Soup on this trek will be their good friends and fellow Slam Dunk Festival Dickies Stage performers, US ska punk favourites Less Than Jake! Having toured together multiple times in North America over the last eighteen months, Bowling For Soup and Less Than Jake are delighted to team up for a full tour on British soil. Opening up the tour will be alt country rockers Vandoliers.
Bowling For Soup’s new tour will kick off on February 16th 2024 in Wolverhampton, taking in shows in Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Hull, Glasgow, Cardiff and finishing up at the world famous Eventim Apollo Hammersmith in London on February 24th. The full list of dates is as follows:

Bowling For Soup have released not one but two hit albums in the last year. Their 2022 studio album Pop Drunk Snot Bread was hailed as the band’s best album in fifteen years. Featuring the hit singles Alexa Bliss, I Wanna Be Brad Pitt and Hello Anxiety to name a few, the album has racked up millions of streams, thousands of sales and critical acclaim from fans and press in equal measure.

Their recently announced covers album, Don’t Mind If We Do, is also now out for everyone’s enjoyment. Hey Mario, originally a hit for Bowling For Soup bassist Rob Felicetti’s former band Patent Pending, was given a Bowling For Soup makeover – just in time for the release of the new Super Mario Bros movie!
The video for Hey Mario features Bowling For Soup attempting to lift the spirits of Mario in a variety of ways – some more traditional for Mario than others! Check out the video here:
Don’t Mind If We Do, released on the 4th of April 2023 through Que-So / Brando Records, is a collection of covers recorded by Bowling For Soup in recent times, along with a couple of new covers.
