Blink-182 Announces Summer Tour Plans After Five Year Break

May 15, 2009

(ChattahBox) — This could be a last chance to see a great band scenario. Blink-182 members Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Tom DeLonge will embark on a nearly 50-date North American arena and amphitheater tour, beginning July 24 at the Joint in Las Vegas, and wrapping Oct. 3 at the Borgata Events Center in Atlantic City, N.J. after a five-year hiatus.

The Live Nation-produced trek will feature support on various dates from Weezer, Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco, All-American Rejects, Taking Back Sunday, Asher Roth and Chester French.

There were hard feelings after the band’s break up in 2005 with Mark and Travis not really speaking with former 182 frontman Tom DeLonge since.

After four years of not talking to each other, the recent death of Blink producer Jerry Finn and Travis Barker’s miraculous survival of a plane crash got the guys talking again and one thing lead to another.

Blink-182 confirms it is writing new songs, but no word on when a new album might be released. And the word on the street is that this tour will focus on the hits.
