Ten years ago, Philadelphia's The Wonder Years released The Greatest Generation, a masterpiece of an album packed with both the snarl and sensitivity of growing up. It has since been called one of the greatest pop-punk albums of all time by Rolling Stone; a tour de force of where the genres of punk and emo collide, The Greatest Generation has garnered critical acclaim over the years for its introspective and mature approach to themes like nostalgia, politics, grief, and the struggles of the working class.
To celebrate the album’s ten year anniversary, the band return to the UK this November for six special live shows. The tour kicks off in Glasgow on November 9th, before shows in Manchester, Leeds, Cardiff and Brighton, culminating in a show at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on November 15th.
Speaking of tour, frontman Dan Campbell says, “The second leg of The Greatest Generation 10 Year Anniversary is coming to the United Kingdom this November. We’re ripping six shows with our pals in Origami Angel and Kississippi where we’ll be playing the entire album plus a second set of songs spanning our whole catalog.”
