Blink-182 members to play intimate gig in London next week

They'll deliver a short acoustic set at a small venue in Kingston

Blink-182 members Mark Hoppus and Matt Skiba are to play a special one-off intimate gig in south-west London next week.

The duo will give a “short acoustic set” at Kingston’s Rose Theatre on Tuesday (June 7) in association with local music shop Banquet Records.

Banquet Records announced the show on Twitter earlier today. Tickets will only be available over the counter at the shop from tomorrow morning (June 3), limited to two per customer.

The band’s new album ‘California’ will be released on July 1 and is being trailed by new song ‘Bored To Death’, which premiered last month (May). The single marks the first new recording by the band since 2011’s ‘Neighbourhoods’.

‘Bored To Death’ sees Alkaline Trio man Matt Skiba take Tom DeLonge’s place on record for the first time, with Skiba having previously stepped into the fold for live shows.

The band have also confirmed a run of North American tour dates in support of their new album. Check out Blink-182’s upcoming live dates in full here.
