Following their immensely successful trip to this year’s legendary Download Festival, Bowling For Soup have announced they will return to the UK in October for a major headline tour with California’s Suburban Legends and Orange in support.
The tour follows the July 18th release of “Turbulence.” This is the second single from the Texan rockers’ critically acclaimed new album “Fishin For Woos”.
The band pride themselves on providing their loyal and ever-growing army of fans with great value for money experiences so in addition to the main show, featuring a full rocked-out performance by the whole band, fans will have the option to purchase VIP tickets which will give them access to an exclusive live acoustic performance by Jaret and Erik, a meet and greet event and goodie bag.

The acoustic performances are something that have become hugely popular over the last 18 months. Jaret and Erik already have two sell out UK acoustic tours under their belts which have led to a stunning performance on the Jagermeister Acoustic Stage at Download Festival 2011, which saw them attract the stage’s biggest crowd to date with approximately 2500 people making the muddy trek away from the festival’s main arena to catch the duo’s 30 minute performance. The set provided the perfect warm-up show for the following day’s show stealing main stage set, which earned a 4K review in Kerrang magazine and featured a special on-stage introduction from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens.
“Bowling For Soup’s perennial and ever-growing appeal reaches from teenage pop-punk fans through to hardened metal aficionados as well as mainstream music fan. The phenomenal response to their Download performances, in addition to their extraordinary ability to connect with both their established fans and the casual festival goers year in, year out proves that Bowling For Soup are a lot more than just a novelty act. The new album, “Fishin For Woos”, is evidence that more serious song writing can sit hand-in-hand with the fun, infectious party anthems that are their trademark. Seventeen years into their career, this band shows no signs of slowing down and 2011 is gearing up to be just the start of a massively successful new phase in the Bowling For Soup story.
