Blink 182 Announce UK Tour Dates

By Jack Holmes

The American pop-punk progenitors Blink-182 are coming to the UK in 2017.

The huge arena tour will kick off on July 3rd in Cardiff, finishing with a London date on July 19th.

The ten date tour also visits Nottingham, Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Liverpool. The huge tour isn’t a big surprise for a band that have been selling out arena tours for over a decade, having become an icon of pop punk in the 90′s and early 2000′s.

They’ll be touring with their latest album California which hit number one in the UK and US earlier this year.

It’s the first album the band have released since guitarist and co-vocalist Tom DeLonge quit the band and was replaced by the Alkaline Trio frontman, Matt Skiba.

The new tour announcement came from the band themselves during the BBC Radio One Rock Show where the band were hosting a takeover.

Tickets for the tour will go on sale on Friday at 9am and can be purchased via gigsandtours.com or ticketmaster.co.uk, and you can watch an announcement video for the tour below.
