Bowling for Soup will play the seaside venue next year

The Texan crown princes of pop punk will be jetting back to their home away from home to embark on their first ever UK tour completely focused on seaside towns which will call in at Scarborough Spa’s Grand Hall on Monday May 3, 2021.

As always, Bowling For Soup like to bring bands along for the ride who provide a fantastic full evening's entertainment for their fans, and this is no different for the Surf The UK tour.

Supporting on them on their tour will be Orange County alt-rockers Lit, best known for their global smash hits My Own Worst Enemy, Miserable and Over My Head.

Alongside Lit, Bowling For Soup's friends and long time collaborators The Dollyrots will also be bringing their infectious brand of bubblegum punk to the beach towns of the UK, for what is going to be the tour of the Spring of 2021.

Bowling For Soup's main man Jaret Reddick is very much looking forward to seeing the UK part of their fanbase once again: “It’s such a weird time. These dates will be 14 months since our last live shows. It is certainly hard to wrap my head around that. I absolutely can not wait to be on stage again, and in front of a UK audience, which everyone knows are the best fans on the planet. And our best buddies The Dollyrots. I can’t think of a better way to kick back into gear! Rest assured, we will be compliant with any and all safety guidelines still in place during this tour.”

Lit singer AJ Popoff is similarly looking forward to getting on the road with Bowling For Soup: "We are beyond excited to get back to the UK and play our rock show with our good buddies BFS! The UK is our favourite place to play! Can’t believe it’s taken us this long to tour together!! Gonna be a hell of a show!"

The Dollyrots are already counting down the days until their visit to Scarborough “We’re absolutely thrilled for this tour, can’t wait to get on the bus & hit the stage with our bffs in rock - and real life! After a break from the UK and touring due to the obvious we’re ready for these shows to go off!!”

Tickets for the show go on sale from Scarborough Spa’s website on Friday October 9.
