Multi-platinum Canadian pop-punk legends SIMPLE PLAN today reveal they will bring their No Pads, No Helmets… Just Balls 15th Anniversary World Tour to Australia in April for a special run of East Coast dates.
Opening to rave reviews across North America, the No Pads, No Helmets… Just Balls 15th Anniversary Tour is a killer night chock-a-block full of Simple Plan’s pop-punk classics, and now Australian fans get their one and only chance to hear the album in its entirety!
In a statement, the band said that, “After releasing our 5th album last year and playing more than 100 shows in over 40 countries, we felt it was important take this opportunity to look back and celebrate the amazing adventure we’ve had as a band and as friends. It felt important to do something special, something we’ve never done before to mark this landmark in our lives. This is why we wanted to do this tour.”
And the reviews are flooding in from the shows with Canadian Beats exclaiming it was “a truly epic performance by a group of pop-punk icons…a party that wouldn’t stop!” and Billboard stating “Everyone in the audience knew every single word, screaming them out almost as loudly as the band was playing.”
Led by frontwoman Caitlin Henry, local rockers EAT YOUR HEART OUT will kick things off with their grungy pastiche of emo energy, punk power and pop palatability. Having recently signed a worldwide deal with Fearless Records the future is blazingly bright for the Newcastle five-piece.
STATESIDE, who are one of the hottest young rising female-fronted acts in the country have been handpicked by Simple Plan and will be joining the tour. With the likes of Alternative Press recently singing their praises and Don’t Bore Us championing them as “Australia’s next huge pop punk export”, Chugg Entertainment and Destroy All Lines are thrilled to have them joining the tour.
The STATESIDE live performance is nothing short of exhilarating with Wall Of Sound recently exclaiming “This talented bunch are clearly going to go far and it’s always a pleasure watching them flaunt their talented musician and showmanship!”
With a slew of awards a mile long and over 10 million album sales globally, this is going to be a MUST SEE for any Simple Plan fan.
