Blink 182 UK and Irish tour dates rescheduled

Unfortunately, due to Blink 182’s new running over-schedule, the band has had to reschedule UK and Irish tour dates to the Summer of 2012. Mark, Tom and Travis have issued an apology to fans, thanking them for their support and understanding.

From Mark, Tom and Travis: “It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce our planned 2011 European Summer tour has been rescheduled.  When we booked the tour last year, we were confident that we would have the new album out before the Summer. Turns out we were mistaken as the album is taking longer than we thought and won’t be out till later this year.”

 

“We hoped we would have some new songs to play rather than do another ‘greatest hits tour’ which you all saw last Summer.  As much as we know our fans would be cool with that, we feel that we owe you guys something new when you spend your money to come see us. Frankly, it’s what needs to continue for us to remain vital.”

 

“The three of us are working very hard to do what we set out to do when we re-formed – get a new blink-182 album recorded.  Apologies to all of our fans who have bought tickets and were looking forward to the Summer shows but we’ll be back soon with the rescheduled dates in Summer 2012, have a new album out and be able to play new songs for you all. Thanks for all of the continued support and understanding.”

 

“For those of you who hoped to see us at Oxegen and T In The Park festivals this year, we’re very sorry that we won’t be there as we were looking forward to playing them so much.  However, we’ve added Dublin, Belfast and Glasgow arena dates listed below onto next Summer’s tour so we can see our Irish and Scottish fans.”

 

UPDATE (JANUARY 24 2012): An extra date to the blink 182  schedule has been announced; blink 182 will perform at the Bournemouth International Centre on June 7.  Tickets for this new show go on sale on Friday (January 27) at 9.00am.
