In the first weekend of May, over 100 bands rocked East Rutherford, NJ at the two-day Bamboozle festival. (Some of our readers were even lucky enough to win tickets to the event.) Now, music fans all over the country will get to experience the energy of the festival with the Bamboozle Roadshow, a full U.S. tour, featuring All Time Low, Forever the Sickest Kids and more.
In its third year, the Bamboozle Roadshow has evolved into a traveling event, which features an entire day of music on two jam-packed stages. Forever the Sickest Kids are no strangers to the tour -- this will be the second consecutive year that the Dallas natives have been invited to join the lineup.
"After being on the whole Bamboozle Roadshow last year, we get the privilege of seeing this year's transformation of it into a full on bus festival comparing to that of Warped Tour," lead singer Jonathan Cook tells JSYK. "This will be a great way to see a huge amount of our fans in a month-long, day-after-day tour."
FTSK are Bamboozle vets. The band has not only toured with the Roadshow, but they've also played the Bamboozle and Bamboozle Left festivals. But for Jonathan, the Roadshow is where it's at. "The biggest difference to me with the two-day festival and the tour is the amount of fans you get to meet, and the amount of time you get to spend with the bands that are on the shows," he says. "We, as a band, hope to get to hang with these bands and make memories from this tour with other bands just as much as with the fans."
The Bamboozle Roadshow begins on May 21 in Columbia, MD. Tickets are on sale now at TheBamboozle.com. Forever the Sickest Kids will be checking in with a video tour blog once the tour kicks off, so stay tuned to see what's going down on the road.
