Simple Plan bring 15th anniversary world tour to NZ in april

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 New Zealand in April for one Auckland show.

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 New Zealand 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 to 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.”

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. Rolling Stone recently named No Pads, No Helmets… Just Balls in their Top 50 Greatest Pop Punk albums of all time and with tickets on sale Wednesday 17th January they are sure to go quick!
