THE HEAD­LIN­ERS ARE AB­SO­LUTELY AWE­SOME!

Ir­ish-amer­i­can punks Flog­ging Molly are con­firmed as this year’s Fire­ball: Fu­elling The Fire head­lin­ers. You can guar­an­tee drinks will be pitched sky­wards as the rowdy Cal­i­for­nian sev­en­piece play an­thems from their two-decade ca­reer, in­clud­ing songs from their lat­est al­bum Life Is Good. Sláinte mhath!

AND THEY’LL BE JOINED BY SOME PUNK LE­GENDS…

In ad­di­tion to Flog­ging Molly, leg­endary Cal­i­for­nia punks Face To Face, who fea­ture bassist Scott Shi­flett, are on the bill. His brother Chris plays gui­tar in up-and-com­ing U.S. rock­ers Foo… some­thing? You may have heard of them. We haven’t, but we’re sure they’re cool.

THERE’S THE CHANCE TO SEE FIRE­BALL’S HOTTEST BAND!

If you caught the Fire­ball tour in Glas­gow last year (Reel Big Fish, Anti-flag, Mad Cad­dies and Sweet Lit­tle Ma­chine) then there’s ev­ery chance you saw Scot­tish pop-punks Lost In Stereo. The band im­pressed Fire­ball so much they’ve been in­vited to play 2018’s tour! “It’s a dream come true,” says front­man El­lis Hill.

AND THEY SUP­PORT ALL LO­CAL ROCK SCENES, TOO…

The re­spon­si­bil­ity of kick­ing off each show lies at the feet of a lo­cal act, hand-picked by Fire­ball’s panel of judges. De­tails on how to en­ter Fire­ball’s Hottest Band 2019 com­pe­ti­tion will be avail­able from June 1. So don’t muck about, and roll up early to catch some of Bri­tain’s best young tal­ent.

AND IT DOESN’T STOP THERE!

What could be bet­ter than four ace bands, we hear you cry? Five bands, you ninny. The tour’s very spe­cial guests, an amaz­ing punk out­fit from the States, will be added to the bill soon. If you suf­fer from a de­bil­i­tat­ing case of what Twit­ter physi­cians de­scribe as #FOMO, get your tick­ets now!

THERE’S NO EX­CUSE TO NOT GO…

As with each Fire­ball: Fu­elling The Fire tour, ticket prices have been kept to an ab­so­lute min­i­mum. This year, they are a paltry £15 a pop, mak­ing it just £3 per band. That’s the price of a sip of cof­fee in cer­tain cafes in Lon­don. So tell us, what ex­actly are you wait­ing for?
