Blink-182 have announced details of a new UK headline tour for 2017.
The pop-punk band released their seventh studio album ‘California’ earlier this year. The record was their first since guitarist Tom DeLonge quit the band and was replaced by 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 after DeLonge’s departure. “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 tonight (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.
