You will be at her show. Blink-182 is back.
On Tuesday, the rock band announced that original members Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker are reuniting for a world tour, new album and new song, “Edging,” out Friday. This marks the first time the trio have performed and created new music together since DeLonge left the band in 2015.
To celebrate their comeback, the group released a video teasing their upcoming single and encouraging fans to check the Blink 182 website for tour dates. The band will play at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles on June 16 before traveling to San Diego (June 20), San Jose (June 22) and Sacramento (June 23).
The “All the Small Things” hitmakers will also visit several other cities in the United States, as well as filming locations in Mexico, Canada, South America, Europe and Australia.
Blink-182’s upcoming return comes after several band members recently recovered from serious health conditions. In June 2021, Hoppus announced that he had been diagnosed with cancer. In September 2021, the 50-year-old bassist and singer was cancer-free after battling stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
In June 2022, Barker was hospitalized for a “life-threatening” case of pancreatitis triggered by an endoscopy gone wrong. In early July, the 46-year-old drummer was feeling “a lot better” and “so grateful” for the treatment he’d received.
Fans have long awaited a reunion with Blink-182 since the band’s messy breakup in 2015. What was originally described by Hoppus as a “friendly divorce” eventually morphed into something less heartfelt, with Hoppus and Barker calling DeLonge “ungrateful and disingenuous” after his exit.
In a lengthy statement on the episodes at the time, lead singer and guitarist DeLonge claimed he “never intended to quit” but ultimately “found it hard…” to join a band suffering from “years of malevolence.” Seven years later, the group seems to have put things back together — at least for now.
In addition to a series of solo concerts throughout 2023 and 2024, the band is also slated to headline Lollapalooza music festivals in Chile, Argentina and Brazil alongside Billie Eilish, Drake, Lil Nas X, Tame Impala and Rosalía.
Tickets for the Blink 182 world tour go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. Pacific.
