Time Out says

The original line-up is back for a huge Australian tour in 2024

Blink-182 are back, and what's our age again? It must be getting up there because it's been nearly ten years since they toured – and this time around, they're reuniting to bring the original threesome of Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker to Australia.

Kicking off the tour in Perth on February 8 and 9, 2024, Blink-182 will then head to Adelaide on February 11 before hitting Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on February 13, 14, 26, 27 and 29. After we've had our fill of their stacked back catalogue, including 'All The Small Things', 'Adam's Song' and 'I Miss You', they'll head to Sydney on February 16, 17, 23 and 24, and Brisbane on February 19, 20 and 21.

Although 1997's Dude Ranch was a lot of our first introduction to Blink-182's attitude-filled punk rock, they truly hit the mainstream with their third album Enema of the State in June 1999, which sold over 15 million copies worldwide and propelled them to pop-punk stardom off the back of huge singles like 'What's My Age Again?'.

The following years saw DeLonge exit the band twice, Barker experience a life-changing plane crash, and Hoppus a cancer diagnosis. Since then, they appear to have made amends, with these Australian dates a stop on a huge world tour.

General public tickets go on sale for Blink-182's final Melbourne show on Monday, June 19 at 12pm at Live Nation. Get in quick, because if you miss out, you'll surely be singing 'Dammit'.
