blink-182 have reunited with guitarist and vocalist Tom DeLonge for a massive 2023 world tour tour. The original trio – bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus, drummer Travis Barker, and DeLonge – will kick off the trek on March 11, 2023, at Imperial GNP in Tijuana, Mexico. The shows mark their first-ever performances in Latin America.

The North American leg begins on May 4, 2023 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN. The band will perform in Chicago, New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Dallas, and many more cities. From there, the band will head to Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. See the full tour itinerary below.

Tickets go on sale Monday, October 17 at 10am via “We’re coming. Tour’s coming. Album’s coming. Tom’s coming,” the band stated. Check out the group’s hilarious tour announcement video below.

Turnstile will serve as special guests at the North American shows. The Story So Far will accompany blink-182 on the European leg. Rise Against are tagging along for the performances in Australia and New Zealand.

Additionally, the group has recorded a brand new studio album. The record’s first singe “Edging” arrives this Friday, October 14. Fans can pre-add and pre-save the song now HERE.

Next year marks the 20th anniversary of blink-182’s 2003 self-titled album. Released via Geffen, the platinum-selling record would be the band’s last before a lengthy hiatus. They regrouped in 2011 and released Neighborhoods, which is the band’s final LP to date with Tom DeLonge.

On October 6, Troy Hanson, Cumulus Media’s Vice President of Corporate Programming for Rock Formats, confirmed that DeLonge had officially rejoined blink-182 and that the band was planning a full-scale North American arena tour. Hanson broke the news on the Q101’s Brian, Ali & Justin Podcast – Chicago’s alternative rock radio staton.

“Tom DeLonge has rejoined blink-182 and they are coming to the United Center,” Hanson stated.

blink-182 parted ways with DeLonge back in January of 2015. Unsurprisingly, there were conflicting reports about how the situation unfolded. The band recruited Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba to fill in after DeLonge’s departure.

“We were all set to play this festival and record a new album and Tom kept putting it off without reason,” the band said in a statement at the time. “A week before we were scheduled to go in to the studio we got an email from his manager explaining that he didn’t want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinitely, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors. “No hard feelings, but the show must go on for our fans.”

“To all the fans, I never quit the band,” DeLonge said on his social media at the time. “I actually was on a phone call about a blink-182 event for New York City at the time all these weird press releases started coming in. Apparently those releases were ‘sanctioned’ from the band. Are we dysfunctional, yes. But, Christ.”

Last June, blink-182 bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer. He had started chemotherapy treatments three months prior. Before he began his treatment, he had a visit with blink bandmate Barker and then-former guitarist DeLonge.

“It was the first time that all three of us were in the same room in, like, five years,” Hoppus told Billboard back in August. “It’s actually better than it used to be. There was no agenda. There were no lingering grudges. It felt very back to what it should be: three friends sitting in a room.”
