The Fireball – Fuelling The Fire Tour is BACK! Returning for its fourth year, one of the most anticipated events in the punk-rock calendar will hit venues across the UK with a staggering line-up. Want to know who’s performing this year? Take a look below.
LESS THAN JAKE
Making their return to the Fireball – Fuelling The Fire Tour line-up are the kings of ska-punk themselves, Less Than Jake! With nearly 30 years’ experience as one of the most entertaining live bands around and a catalogue of albums, numerous singles and much, much more, there’s absolutely no doubt at all that their headline set will be a riot.
That’s right, we’re giving you not one, but TWO ska-punk legends on the tour this year, so don’t say we never treat you! Goldfinger will be hopping across the pond to deliver their huge choruses, big attitude and bundles of energy to crowds across the country, and when you’ve got John Feldmann as a front man, you can guarantee it’ll be a party.
Our very special guests this year are the one and only Save Ferris! Having made a triumphant return in 2017 with EP, Checkered Past, the band have since been back out touring across the globe and are a worthy addition to this year’s Fireball – Fuelling The Fire Tour. If you’ve missed them as much as we have, then make sure you get down early for a giant serving of pop-punk and ska.
THIEVES OF LIBERTY
Having wowed crowds in 2018, Thieves Of Liberty were officially crowned the winners of the Fireball Hottest Band competition and were invited to perform across the entire tour this year. Their unique, fun-rock sound has earned them an impressive following across the North-East already and we’ve got a good feeling that the rest of the UK is going to catch up fast!
Keeping the party vibes going throughout the night will be tour DJ, Matt Stocks, who’ll be spinning the biggest and best punk anthems in between sets each night. Some of you may recognise him from previous years, as he’s usually the one in some form of weird fancy dress or just being a bit of a goofball on stage, which is exactly why we’ve asked him back for another year.
Here he is wearing the poncho of shame and apologising for his antics on the tour in 2016, just to give you an idea of what to expect...
