Blink-182: Fans React to Ticket Sales for World Tour Reunion with Tom DeLong

0

The original line-up of pop-punk heroes will embark on a world tour in 2023 and early 2024.

Blink-182 fans have reacted to ticket sales for their reunion world tour with Tom DeLong in 2023 and 2024.

On Tuesday (October 11) it became known that the band reunited with its founder and guitarist to release new music and embark on a big world tour. The trio then released the single “Edging” on Friday (October 14), and a full album is also in development and should be released next year.

The tour will kick off with Blink’s first shows in Latin America next March (supported by Wallows) before they head to North America in May with Turnstile in tow.

A UK and European tour supported by The Story So Far will begin in September 2023, and then finish in Australia and New Zealand in early 2024.

Tickets for all the shows went on sale today at 10:00 (October 17), and fans reacted with glee and despair to attempts to buy tickets.

You can purchase the remaining tickets here (UK) and here (North America), and see the full list of tour dates at the bottom of the page.

After the announcement of the reunion tour, Matt Skiba responded to Tom Delong’s note thanking him for Blink-182 “thriving” after the band returned to its original lineup, which made Skiba “really happy”.

The vocalist of the Alkaline Trio joined the band in 2015 as a replacement for DeLong, who left to “change the world for his children.” Delong also left Blink in 2005 to focus on his other band, Angels & Airwaves, which was an additional project to his side band Box Car Racer, formed in 2001.

Skiba, who has been playing in Blink for the last seven years, congratulated the trio on their transformation. He wrote in a message posted on Instagram: “I’m sure there’s a joke here about releases and happy endings that I miss, but I’m truly grateful for the time I spent with Blink, and I’m really happy that you guys are a band and a family again.”

Meanwhile, DeLong said that the upcoming album Blink-182 contains some of the “most progressive” music of their entire career.
