Priority Tickets for Blink-182, Phil Collins at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park, Jack Whitehall, Busted, Simple Minds, Calum Scott and De La Soul are available this week.
Blink-182 have announced details of a new UK headline tour for 2017. Priority Tickets are available now.
The pop-punk band released their seventh studio album ‘California’ earlier this year with brand new member and former Alkaline Trio singer and vocalist Matt Skiba.
In a new documentary, bassist Mark Hoppus recently revealed that Skiba was the only person in the running to join the band. “The only person we talked about coming and playing our shows was Matt. The reception to Matt was amazing, overwhelming. People were chanting his name before we even came out and played,” he said.
Drummer Travis Barker recently said the band hope to release an EP around Christmas featuring songs that didn’t make it onto ‘California’.
The new tour was announced on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show earlier this week (November 6). The band were hosting a takeover of the show at the time.
Blink-182 will play 10 dates across the UK in July. The run of dates will begin in Cardiff on July 3 before heading to Nottingham, Leeds, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool, Bournemouth and London.

Phil Collins has been announced as the latest headliner for Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park. Priority Tickets are available from 9am on Thursday, November 10.
The rock veteran will come out of retirement 10 years after nerve damage forced him to quit playing drums.
The former Genesis member and solo star has said he is unlikely to be behind a kit on the new dates, but said he would practice the drum solo on ‘In The Air Tonight’ in his garage as that is “something I feel I should do”.
He recently sold out a run of five dates at the Royal Albert Hall at the start of June. He will headline the festival at the end of that month.
