Reel Big Fish & Bowling For Soup announce co-headline tour

Reel Big Fish by Jonathan Thorpe

Ska punk legends Reel Big Fish and alt-rock giants Bowling For Soup will team up (marking the first time the bands have toured together) for a U.S. co-headline tour this summer, featuring support from Nerf Herder (6/19 – 6/29) and MEST (7/21 – 8/3).

Speaking about the trek, 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!”

Reel Big Fish frontman Aaron Barrett adds, “We’re still doing that tour? I thought I pulled the plug on that terrible idea a long time ago!”

Ft. Lauderdale, FL kicks off the trek in late June, with a stop in Poughkeepsie, NY at The Chance set for June 27 [TIX]. The tour ends in Denver at the start of August. See a complete list of confirmed dates below.
