Right off the back of announcing taking part in Radio 1’s Rock All Dayer next week, blink-182 have now hit us with news of another UK show, this time at Kingston’s Banquet Records.
Mark Hoppus and Matt Skiba will be performing an intimate acoustic show in the record shop on Tuesday (7th June), just one day before they’re set to headline Radio 1’s Rock All Dayer, which also features slots from A Day To Remember, Creeper, Against the Current and more.
You can purchase tickets when you pre-order new album California, or head down to the store and buy the tickets over the counter, but these can only be purchased in store, in person, from 6pm on Friday (3rd June). Online pre-orders will not be available with ticket bundles; however, if there are any tickets leftover they will be going on sale online on Saturday at 11am.
We’re super excited as blink-182 are set to make their UK debut since the departure of Tom DeLonge and the introduction of new member Matt Skiba. Here are just three songs we’re hoping and praying to hear with their long-awaited return to our shores!
1. Bored to Death
The new single from this recently reformed blink has been pretty well received, especially given the controversy surrounding their dissolution and comeback. It’s a catchy but mature punk rock tune from the band, introducing Skiba’s influence which we really can’t wait to hear live for the first time!
2. Rock Show
It’s one of the best Hoppus singles that blink-182 ever made, with it’s youthful, upbeat lyrics and punchy pop-punk chorus. It wouldn’t be the same if blink-182 came over for a rock show and didn’t play ‘Rock Show‘!
3. What’s My Age Again?
It’s a fan favourite, and a staple of the pop-punk genre that encompasses everything that the scene, and this band, are all about. Even though they’re a bit older these days, we still want to hear them sing about never growing up – and hope they still mean it!
