The tour opens in March in Tijuana, Mexico. The San Diego-bred trio’s two co-founders rekindled their friendship after bassist-singer Mark Hoppus was diagnosed with lymphoma last year
What’s their age again? Tom DeLonge is rejoining blink-182 for a world tour that comes seven years after he was was replaced in the San Diego-bred punk-pop band in 2015.
The tour next year reunites guitarist-singer DeLonge, 46, with bassist-singer Mark Hoppus, 50, and drummer Travis Barker, 46. It opens March 11 in Mexico at the Imperial GNP Festival at Parque Morelos in Tijuana. The U.S. leg kicks off May 4 in Minnesota at St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center and concludes July 16 in Tennessee at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
In between come two Southern California dates: June 16 at Los Angeles’ Banc of California Stadium and June 20 at San Diego’s Pechanga Arena. The band will also perform two other California dates: June 22 at San Jose’s SAP Center and June 23 at Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center. All of the tour dates appear below.
“Edging,” a new single by the band, will be released Friday. It is being billed as the first new recording by Hoppus, DeLonge and Barker in a decade.
Blink–182 rockers Travis Barker, Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge are reuniting for the first time in nearly 10 years to perform on a global
Ticket prices for blink-182’s San Diego concert next June range from $39.50 to $169.50, plus service fees. On-sale information for the entire tour appears later in this article.
Hoppus and DeLonge co-founded blink-182 in Poway in 1992 with the band’s original drummer, Scott Traynor. Barker replaced Traynor in 1998. The band achieved international stardom with its subsequent album, 1999’s “Enema of the State,” which featured “All the Small Things,” “What’s My Age Again?” and other songs that quickly became fan favorites.
The trio split up in 2005, then reunited in 2009 after Barker was one of two survivors in a plane crash that killed four other people.
In January 2015, Hoppus and Barker announced that DeLonge had left the band. DeLonge to issue a statement denying he had quit the group and stressing he had no intention of doing so.
But no matter.
In the last week of January 2015, Hoppus and Barker announced their first show with DeLonge’s replacement, which they initially billed as “blink-182, with Matt Skiba.” The revamped trio released its first recording with Skiba, “Bored to Death,” in April 2016.
With Skiba on board, blink-182 then released two albums, 2016’s Grammy-nominated “California” and 2019’s “Nine.” DeLonge, meanwhile, released his first solo album in 2015, followed last year by the latest album by Angels & Airwaves, the band he founded in 2005 while blink-182 was on its four-year hiatus.
DeLonge also co-wrote four books through his To The Stars Academy that focused on his interest in extra-terrestrial lifeforms and UFOs. In May of this year, he released the first preview for “Monsters of California,” his directorial film debut.
After six years of estrangement, DeLonge and Hoppus renewed their friendship last year after DeLonge learned Hoppus was being treated for B-cell lymphoma. Hoppus concluded his treatment for the disease last year and returned to the stage for a Halloween gig with Barker and musical pal Kevin Gruft of the band Escape the Fate.
Hoppus is now working on his memoir, which will focus on his years in blink-182 and his battle against lymphoma. This year, he attended Barker’s May wedding to Kourtney Kardashian.

Blink-182 (stylized as blink-182) is an American rock band formed in Poway, California, in 1992. Their current lineup consists of bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus, guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge, and drummer Travis Barker. Though their sound has diversified throughout their career, their musical style blends catchy pop melodies with fast-paced punk rock. Their lyrics center on relationships, adolescent frustration, and maturity—or lack thereof. The group emerged from a suburban, Southern California skate-punk scene and gained notoriety for high-energy live shows and irreverent humor.
After years of independent recording and touring, including stints on the Warped Tour, the group signed to MCA Records. Their biggest albums, Enema of the State (1999) and Take Off Your Pants and Jacket (2001), saw international success. Songs like «All the Small Things«, «Dammit«, «I Miss You«, and «What’s My Age Again?» became hit singles and MTV staples. Later efforts, including an untitled album (2003), marked stylistic shifts. Founding member Tom DeLonge quit the group twice, both times a decade apart, before eventually returning. From 2015 to 2022, the band included musician Matt Skiba, with whom they recorded two albums, California (2016) and Nine (2019) and toured in support of both.
Blink-182’s straightforward approach and simple arrangements, which helped initiate pop-punk‘s mainstream rise, made them popular among generations of listeners. Worldwide, the group has sold 50 million albums, and have moved 13 million copies in the U.S.[5
