REEL BIG FISH & BOWLING FOR SOUP announce tour with NERF HERDER & MEST
It seems like the summer of 2019 is going to be one of the most epic years for concerts, at least from my perspective. To add to this hypothesis, it was recently announced Reel Big Fish and Bowling For Soup co-headline tour. I've had the chance to chat with not one but both of these bands in the recent past, check out those interviews here:
This is surprisingly the first time the two ska-punk/pop-punk giants will be touring with each other, despite being friends for years and even jumping on stage during each other's sets. If the headliners aren't enough, the supporting acts for the tour are just as unforgettable with MEST and NERF HERDER jumping on certain legs of the tour.
Bowling For Soup's Jaret Reddick says, "There are those bands with which the fans tell you "you should tour with them'. Often times, you make friends with those bands, and you always say to one another, ‘we GOTTA tour together.’ Well, both those things have been happening for years, and this summer, while on the final cross country Vans Warped Tour, Aaron from Reel Big Fish and I decided we were going to make it happen! And we did! I could NOT be more excited for this summer! Two of the most fun bands on the planet together at last! People will have sore faces from smiling after this one!"
With Reel Big Fish frontman Aaron Barrett jokingly adding, “We’re still doing that tour? I thought I pulled the plug on that terrible idea a long time ago!“
General on sale begins Friday, March 15 at 10 a.m. local time on both of the aforementioned websites.
