Yes, you heard right! Wheatus are repaying the Frogs by giving us a special UK tour in the fall. The tickets for their Islington, London gig are already on sale and you can purchase them over on Artist Ticket. Here’s the best thing about it! If you guys get enough of your Teenage Dirtbag chums to come along to the gig with you and we manage to sell all of the tickets for this concert, Wheatus are willing to add even more dates and give us a full UK tour.
