The rumors are true. Blink-182’s classic lineup is back together. New music and tour coming!
Tom’s potential return to Blink has been perhaps one of rock’s worst kept secrets these past few months. We heard that during Mark Hoppus’ cancer battle the two had been talking quite frequently. Tom’s Blink replacement, Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba, expressed uncertainty about his status in the band earlier this year. And just last week, a colleague at one of our sister stations seemed to have a scoop.
Now… the news is officially official from the most official of sources. And that news is predictably immature (with NSFW language)
They announced a ton of tour dates and festivals, but these are the closest to KC:
07/03 – Denver, CO @ Ball Arena *
07/05 – Dallas, TX @ American Airlines Center *
07/07 – Austin, TX @ Moody Center *
07/08 – Houston, TX @ Toyota Center *
* support from Turnstile
So who’s ready for the Mark, Tom, and Travis Show round 3?
