Don’t Panic have had a fantastic 2023 so far, and they’ve got a big announcement up their sleeve regarding plans for 2024 and the UK!
The Pennsylvania pop punk quartet made waves here earlier this year on their co-headline run alongside The Dollyrots, and the tour was such a success that they are coming back to do it again next year. Running a co-headline bill worked so well last time, Don’t Panic have decided to do it again; This time they have enlisted alt-rock star Thomas Ian Nicholas (of American Pie / Rookie Of The Year fame) and his band to join them!
Don’t Panic and The Thomas Nicholas Band will be heading up and down across the length of the UK for nine dates at the end of March, taking in Scotland, Wales and large parts of England! The full list of shows can be found below:

Here’s Don’t Panic frontman Ted Felicetti on just how excited they are to return to the UK:
“We are so beyond excited to be heading back to the UK this spring! Earlier in 2023 we did our first ever co-headline tour over there with our great friends in The Dollyrots. As soon as that tour ended, we knew we had to return as soon as possible. I guess we just didn’t get our fill of Wetherspoons, Travelodges and Kabobs! And is it really living if we can’t watch our new favo(u)riteTV show ‘Naked Attraction’ to end our nights?
After a very short discussion we knew we needed to once again have an awesome touring partner, and that was an easy decision. We figured why not ask our good friend Thomas Ian Nicholas, of American Pie and Rookie of the Year fame, to join us on the road. After all, we grew up watching his movies! With the addition of local UK boys ‘Who Saves the Hero?’ to round it out, and we have The NAKED ATTRAC-TOUR! This is going to be a GREAT time of amazing music, bands and friends. So, do NOT miss out!”
Don’t Panic released their new album Setting Up To Fail at the end of Summer 2023, and are very much looking forward to playing the new material on the upcoming tour. Some of the songs from Setting Up To Fail will be heard live in the UK for the first time on this tour!
One of the featured tracks from the album is the excellently named Consequence Be Damned. You can check it out on YouTube above.
With praise such as “Don’t Panic’s third album, Setting Up To Fail, marks their triumphant return, fusing matured songwriting influenced by punk and rock legends, shaping their unique sonic identity” (Rebel Noise) offering a view of what awaits ticket holders for the tour next year, this is a great chance to hear some fantastic new songs in some wonderful venues across the UK.
