This weekend the Fireball tour kicks off for 2018, with two shows at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

The ‘Fuelling The Fire Tour’ showcases a lineup of the best in punk for a 10 date tour across the UK. This year’s headliners, Celtic-punk legends Flogging Molly, will be joined by Cal punk veterans Face to Face, LA band The Bronx, and Fireball’s Hottest Band 2018 Lost In Stereo.

The openers for the night will be the winners from the regional heats of Fireball’s Hottest Band 2019 Competition, in association with Kerrang! Magazine. Academy Events and Fireball recently announced that for the London dates These Five Years will join the show on 2nd December, and The Lagan on 3rd December.

The winners of the 2019 competition will be announced at the end of the tour, and will win a place for the whole tour next December. Previous winners have also gone on to support some of punk’s biggest names, and play at festivals across the UK.

The Fireball – Fuelling the Fire Tour is a chance to see some of the best punk bands today on the same night.

Tickets are already sold out for the 2nd December, and tickets for the rest of the tour can be found on www.ticketmaster.co.uk
