MORE ABOUT BOWLING FOR SOUP:

Since forming back in 1994, Bowling For Soup have garnered a vast and loyal fanbase across the world. Staying true to their Texan roots, everyone can relate to the members in the band - singer Jaret Reddick, guitarist Chris Burney, bassist Erik Chandler and drummer Gary Wiseman – giving the group a welcoming persona that has everyone wanting to be their friend. Finding their niche in the 1990's was tough and looking back, frontman Reddick recalls “We were just the stereotypical, small town guys with nothing else to do - starting a band to keep ourselves out of trouble.” There was certainly no current trend to follow and the members of Bowling For Soup had no option but to just go out and have fun. Countless hits, tours and memories later, and the band finally reach South Africa.
