In celebration of their first studio album in more than eight years, Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker will be hitting the road for a 37-date showcase that will take Blink-182 through parts of North America and Europe.
The group officially reformed in 2009 and had plans for the world tour last year, but pushed back the start of the concert series because their latest album, “Neighborhoods,” had not been completed.
Released in September of 2011, “Neighborhoods” debuted at No.2 on the Billboard 200 and sold more than 151,000 copies in its first week of release. Lauded as a dark, almost-biographical album for Blink-182, “Neighborhoods” has been generally well panned by music critics.
The North American portion of the upcoming Blink-182 20th anniversary tour will begin in Rochester, New York with a show at Blue Cross Arena on May 16th. The band will then play five other concerts on the eastern seaboard before heading overseas to begin the European portion of the tour.
The first European concert for Blink-182 will take place at NIA Birmingham in Birmingham, United Kingdom on June 7th. Tentatively, the 20th anniversary tour is expected to run through July, with a final show at the Atlantico Pavilion in Lisbon, Portugal on the 21st of that month.
Blink-182 will have plenty of support at various shows in the UK, as the band will be joined by the All-American Rejects, Four Year Strong, The Blackout and Twin Atlantic at various locales. As of now, the All-American Rejects are expected to accompany the band for a total of 13 European shows, while Four Year Strong will perform at the Birmingham, London, Dublin and Belfast concerts.
