The era of reunion, after a huge gap of seven years after being replaced in the San Diego-based punk-pop group in 2015, Tom DeLonge is reuniting with a flawless idea of a world tour.

People on the boat of reunion are Guitarist-singer DeLonge, 46, with bass player Mark Hoppus, 50, and drummer Travis Barker, 46, the following year. It debuted on March 11 in Mexico at Parque Morelos Imperial GNP Festival. The American leg begins from May 4 in Minnesota at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul ends on July 16 in Tennessee at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Two Southern California dates are scheduled between them: June 16 at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles and June 20 at Pechanga Arena in San Diego.

The pop group will indeed play two further California shows on June 22 and 23 at Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center and San Jose’s SAP Center, respectively. Below are listed every one of the tour dates.

The group will unleash “Edging,” a brand-new track, on Friday. According to the press release, it is Hoppus, DeLonge, and Barker’s first brand-new album in ten years.

In addition to service charges, the cost of tickets for blink-182’s San Diego show in June ranges from $39.50 to $169.50. The tour’s whole on-sale schedule is detailed further in this page.

The group’s original drummer Scott Traynor, together with Hoppus and DeLonge, formed blink-182 in Poway, California, in 1992. Barker assumed Traynor’s position in 1998.

With the release of its follow-up album, 1999’s “Enema of the State,” which included the tracks “All the Small Things,” “What’s My Age Again” and other quickly-becoming fan favourites, the band got a valuable recognition by the audience. 

DeLonge departed the band, according to an announcement made by Hoppus and Barker in January 2015. DeLonge would then issue an announcement claiming him having left the band and emphasising that he had no plans to do so.

Hoppus and Barker planned the inaugural performance with DeLonge’s replacement in the final week of January 2015, initially billing it as “blink-182, with Matt Skiba.” “Bored to Death,” the group’s debut song with Skiba, was issued in April 2016.
