Blink-182 add extra show to 2017 UK tour

Pop-punk band will tour the UK in July of next year

Blink-182 have added an extra date to their UK headline tour, scheduled 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.

Blink had already announced that they will play several dates across the UK in July of next year. The run of dates will begin in Cardiff on July 3 before heading to Nottingham, Leeds, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool, Bournemouth and London.

In a new documentary, bassist Mark Hoppus recently revealed that Matt 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 also recently said the band hope to release an EP around Christmas featuring songs that didn’t make it onto ‘California’.
