With almost 20 years under their belts as Bowling For Soup, and the last ten years of the band being fairly successful, since 2002′s massive hit ‘Girl All The Bad Guys Want’, BFS have been consistently touring the UK every October for the past 10 years to packed crowds.

Although Bowling For Soup don’t provide anything new or overly special, you are always guaranteed a fun and entertaining show, with crowd interaction. This year the band have proclaimed themselves as ‘the band you can wave to’ meaning every couple of songs they stop and let the crowd wave at them, simple but at the same time funny.

The performance lasts over 2 hours, fitting in as many as their songs as they can from over the past 18 years, with Emily, 1985 and Girl All The Bad Guys Want being the stand out songs.

Currently promoting their One Big Happy album, featuring supports The Dollyrots and Patent Pending, both supports join BFS on stage for fun and songs.

In a odd turn at the end singer Jaret decides to do a Q&A with the crowd, which causes the show to over run. Always wanting to please his fans, when the last question is ‘Will you perform the last song in the crowd?’ Jaret responses by taking himself and Kelly Ogden of The Dollyrots in to the middle of the packed mosh pit for them to sing a duet of The Bitch Song.
