Blink-182 have announced their biggest ever tour, with Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker reuniting for the first time in almost 10 years.
The colossal globetrotting tour will arrive in Australia and New Zealand in February 2024. Beginning in Perth on February 9th, the trio will then visit Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane, before heading to Aotearoa for shows in Auckland and Christchurch (see full dates below).
The iconic pop-punk band have also confirmed stellar supporting artists for each leg of the world tour, with acclaimed punk rockers Rise Against set to back them up in Australia and New Zealand.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday, October 20th at 1pm local time. The blink-182 fan club pre-sale begins on Thursday, October 13th at 12pm local time, running until Wednesday, October 19th at 12pm local time.
Both the Live Nation and Spotify pre-sales then commence on Wednesday, October 19th at 1pm local time, concluding on Thursday, October 20th at 12pm local time.
After forming 30 years ago, blink-182 have become one of the most beloved rock bands to emerge from the US. As The New York Times once wrote, “no punk band of the 1990s has been more influential than blink-182.”
And with DeLonge back on guitar duties for the first time since 2015, the “classic” blink-182 lineup should ensure tickets for the forthcoming tour sell out quickly. The band are also set to share their new single “Edging” this Friday, October 14th, marking the first time in a decade that Hoppus, DeLonge, and Barker have worked in the studio together.
