Fireball - Fuelling The Fire Tour 2017: Reel Big Fish, Anti-Flag, Sweet Little Machine, Mad Caddies, Tree House Fire
Academy Events in association with Fireball are extremely pleased to announce the line-up for the second annual ‘Fireball – Fuelling The Fire’ Tour.
Hitting the road throughout October 2017, the run of dates will feature a star studded line-up of the best in punk and ska, headlined by Huntingdon Beach, California’s legendary ska punk outfit Reel Big Fish, with support from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania punks Anti-Flag and Solvang, California-based ska punks Mad Caddies.
Following the huge success of the inaugural 2016 leg featuring Less Than Jake, The Skints, Mariachi El Bronx, KEMURI and The Bennies - which sold nearly 20,000 tickets with eight dates at O2 Academy venues across the UK - the tour is fast becoming a calendar favourite amongst the alternative crowd.
In addition to the announced line up, Fireball’s Hottest Band 2017 winners, Sheffield quartet Sweet Little Machine, will take the opening slot on the 2017 leg of the ‘Fireball - Fuelling The Fire’ Tour, following recent support slots on tours with Me First & The Gimme Gimmes and Patent Pending, promoted by Academy Events.
Commenting on the news, Fireball UK brand manager James Pattison says: 'We’re delighted to be bringing the fire back after a hugely successful inaugural Fuelling The Fire Tour last year, and even more excited to bring you these awesome bands, all of which I’ve personally grown up listening to and loving. At Fireball UK we’re hugely committed to bringing great music experiences to the fans at prices that don’t cost the earth – and renewing the £10 ticket idea is central to that. These shows, much like last year, will be one big party!'
This event takes place at O2 Academy Bristol, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
This Californian ska-punk band have built up a huge cult following in the many years they have been going. Their superbly energetic and catchy melodies are complemented by some driving guitar work. And their cover of 'Take On Me' is legendary.
