WHEATUS, the band behind worldwide hit 'Teenage Dirtbag', are heading for a show in Bridgwater...

The US college rockers, who also enjoyed success with their cover of Erasure's 'A Little Respect', are set to play The Palace on Friday, May 31, along with special guests to be confirmed.

The show is part of a world tour which comes a surprising 17 years after they released their debut album.

It comes after they embarked on a tour with Busted last year, which frontman Brendan B Brown said was an 'astonishing' experience.

He said he was surpsied young people still knew the band's big hit.

“That’s probably the most astonished I've ever been on-stage, when those kids sang back to us every night," he said.

“I thought it would be good, but I wasn’t prepared for the crazy reception we got. It was extraordinary for a support act to get that kind of love.”

Tickets for the concert, with doors opening at 7pm, are on sale now via See Tickets, Eventbright, The Palace and Cobblestones in Bridgwater, costing £16.50 in advance.
