BACK in February 2018, Texan pop punk royalty Bowling For Soup embarked on the biggest and most successful UK tour of their twenty four years together. The Get Happy Tour 2018 was a wild success, culminating in the bands' biggest ever UK headline show crowd at London's Brixton Academy.

Fast forward to the start of the Autumn and Bowling For Soup are delighted to be back on UK shores. The Almost Christmas Tour is playing eight shows across England and Scotland, hitting some locations the band hasn't played for many years (or in the case or one or two places, for the first time ever)!

You can catch them next Friday, November 30, at Southampton O2 Guildhall.

Joining Bowling For Soup on this trek are their pop punk brothers Patent Pending. Fans of both bands know their collective history together goes back a long way, with fans of both asking them repeatedly to tour together again. Those wishes are coming true!

Bowling For Soup's own fearless leader, Jaret Reddick, is delighted to have the band returning to parts of the UK they don't often get to play - including Southampton:

"As I think back on our history of UK touring, it dawns on me that we have never been there in December. At least I don't remember being there...could be the pints! Regardless, I thought, who likes Christmas as much as we do?!? PATENT PENDING!! And who more than both of us?!? PEOPLE IN THE UK!!!

So we reunited with our little brothers, Patent Pending, to bring our first ever Christmas tour (well, almost!!) to the UK!!!"
