Less Than Jake & Goldfinger announced for Fireball tour 2019

Returning for its 4th year, one of the most anticipated events in the UK Punk-Rock calendar returns this September to O2 Academy venues up and down the UK with a staggering line up.

Once again showing their commitment to providing a most excellent night out, Fireball in association with Academy Events, bring you the heavyweights of pop-punk, ska and rock to Fireball: Fuelling The Fire tour. This year sees ska-punk legends Less Than Jake and Goldfinger as headliners, with some very special guests (to be announced soon) and the winners of the Fireball Hottest Band competition, Thieves Of Liberty. DJ Matt Stocks will keep the party vibe going between sets.

Fireball’s Hottest Band competition will also return in 2019 reinstating the commitment to new and emerging artists that Fireball have always shown and bringing a fresh aspect to every date of the tour with a winning act joining the final line-up – more details coming soon!

“Yes! It’s that time of the year again. Less Than Jake is extremely excited to headline this year’s Fireball: Fuelling The Fire Tour. We wanted to ramp up the insanity this time around so we’re bringing along our friends in Goldfinger to celebrate with us. We can’t wait for these shows. It’s going to be epic! See ya soon!” says Chris DeMakes of Less Than Jake.

Goldfinger’s John Feldmann adds “UK! I have always felt at home in your beautiful countries… You have the best audiences, the best festivals, amazing food and I write really good songs there! I wanted to also thank Fireball for continuing to support live music; so pumped to do this tour!”

“This September we’re embarking on our 4th annual Fireball: Fuelling the Fire Tour. It’s the most outrageous, downright criminally fun and cinnamoniest fortnight of the touring calendar and we absolutely haven’t relented on the great bands this year. We’re incredibly excited to welcome Less Than Jake, Goldfinger, our Hottest Band of 2019: Thieves of Liberty and veteran Fireball Tour DJ Matt Stocks into the fold, as well as some of the UK’s best emerging talent specially handpicked for each show and one ultra-special secret band that is still to be announced! So that’s five bands every night, a live DJ, excellent prize giveaways and as much Fireball as you can cram into your sticky mitts all for just £15 a ticket! Let’s party!” says Matt Reynolds, Fireball UK Brand Ambassador.
