It’s official: Blink-182 are back! The pop-punk trio played their first show in four years Thursday night in Los Angeles, and now the band have unveiled the tour dates for their summer outing with Weezer, Fall Out Boy, and others!
The exhaustive 45-date outing kicks off July 24 in Las Vegas and will hit every corner of the U.S. before closing out October 3, in Atlantic City, NJ.
The band has tapped an impressive list of openers. In addition to Weezer and Fall Out Boy, the show will also feature support from Panic at the Disco, All-American Rejects, Taking Back Sunday, Asher Roth, and Chester French on select dates. Tickets will cost between $20 and $60, and go on sale May 30 via livenation.com.
Stage designer Martin Phillips has joined the effort to help create “the most ridiculous display of lights and images we can imagine,” Blink bassist Mark Hoppus said in a statement. Phillips has also designed stages for the likes of Kanye West, Daft Punk, and Nine Inch Nails.
As far as the set list goes, fans can both classic and new material. “As the rehearsals go by, we’re hoping to have at least one new song in the repertoire,” Blink-182 manager Rick Devoe told Billboard.com. Devoe also confirmed that Blink will record a new album this fall/winter.
Meanwhile, Blink-182 has been filming a mysterious new video project. “It’s definitely not what it seems to be,” Hoppus told MTV.com. “It’s not really a music video shoot, and it’s not really a movie shoot. It’s something that no other band has done, and the technology behind it is ridiculous. I don’t even know how to explain it.” For more on the project (photos!), click here.
