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 a five-date tour in Perth on February 8 and 9, 2024, aupported by Rise Against, Blink-182 will then head to Adelaide before hitting Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on February 13 and 26. 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 and 23 and afterwards Brisbane, wrapping up their tour 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 quick stop on a multi-date world tour.
General public tickets go on sale for Blink-182's Sydney show on Thursday, October 20, 2022 at 1pm at Live Nation. Get in quick, because if you miss out, you'll surely be singing 'Dammit'.
