The Dollyrots return to the UK comes after a hugely successful run of shows earlier this year alongside Bowling For Soup and Lit. Don’t Panic meanwhile are hugely excited about hitting UK shores for the first time as a full band.
To discuss their upcoming run of shows, let’s find out just how excited Don’t Panic frontman Ted Felicetti is:
“My band and I can’t even begin to express how excited we are to be coming overseas for Valentine’s day next year. I had already planned on asking Luis and Kelly to be my Valentine, so this makes it way easier! Ever since my acoustic tour in the UK with Jaret from Bowling For Soup, we have been getting dozens of emails and messages for Don’t Panic to return, and who am I to deny everyone such a treat. All four of us are ready for Weatherspoons, Nandos, Kabobs, cloudy skies, and most importantly… you!”
The Dollyrots frontwoman Kelly Ogden also had this to add:
“After touring the UK with Bowling for Soup and Lit this last time around the fan response made it clear we absolutely had to get back for a headline tour. We promised we’d be back soon so now’s the time! And we decided to keep it in the BFS family so we’re headed over with our pals Don’t Panic. Can’t wait to play some longer sets and get loud with all our UK fans and friends!”
The Dollyrots most recent single is “Just Like All The Rest”, for which The Dollyrots recently released a lyric video. Check out the video, which sees Dollyrots husand and wife duo Kelly and Luis animated to great effect, above.
