Flogging Molly set to headline Fireball tour

Fireball have revealed the first names for their Fueling The Fire tour 2018. 

Hitting the road throughout December 2018, the run of dates will once again feature a star studded line-up of the best in punk music, headlined by Celtic-punk legends Flogging Molly, with support from So Cal punk rock veterans Face to Face, Glasgow pop-punks and Fireball’s Hottest Band 2018 Lost in Stereo, and VERY special guests still TBA.

A huge success since its debut in 2015, the tour has already played host to the likes of legendary names including Less Than Jake, The Skints, Mariachi El Bronx, KEMURI, The Bennies, Reel Big Fish, Anti-Flag, Mad Caddies and Fireball’s Hottest Band 2017 winners Sweet Little Machine. To date, the tour has sold nearly 30,000 tickets across twenty of the UK’s most prestigious live music venues, with the annual run of dates fast becoming a calendar favourite amongst the alternative crowd.

Alongside tickets going on sale, organisers are delighted to announce that the Fireball’s Hottest Band 2019 competition returns this year in association with Kerrang! Magazine, opening on the 1st June 2018, and once again giving regional artists the chance to win one coveted opening support slot on each of the December 2018 tour dates. The overall winner will be crowned Fireball’s Hottest Band 2019 and go on to play the entire ‘Fireball – Fuelling The Fire Tour’ next year, along with a host of other opportunities and year-long support and guidance from both Fireball and Academy Events.

Details on how to enter will be revealed soon.

Commenting on the news, Fireball UK brand manager James Pattison says: “I’m delighted to have the Fuelling The Fire Tour return for its third installment in 2018. We’ve had some really memorable nights over the past two years with some fantastic bands, and I’m confident this line-up is going to make it the best one yet.”
