Blink-182 have officially announced that they’re headed to New Zealand - you little beauty!

It was announced at 1am this morning (12th October) that the band are heading to Auckland’s Spark Arena and Canterbury’s Christchurch Arena in February 2024. 

It’s the band’s biggest world tour to date, they’re hitting up the UK, Europe, North America, Australia, Latin America and of course, New Zealand - with special guests Rise Against!

Tom DeLonge is set to rejoin Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker after seven years away, meaning the tour will see the three reunite for the first time in nearly ten years. 

Plus, they’re about to release a new single called 'Edging', in true Blink-182 style. It's set to drop this Friday 14th October, and it also marks the first time in a decade that the trio have been in a studio together.

The three original Blink-182 members met up before Mark was undergoing treatment for cancer last year and Hoppus revealed that the three were in a good place.

He said of the band's relationship: "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."

Mark, 50, added: "I keep writing music, and I'm open to whatever the next phase of Blink is. I'm hopeful for the future. I'm just damn glad to be here."

The band released an announcement video this morning, where they also announced a new album - but no release date just yet.
