Blink-182 Reveals a 2023 Tour


Blink-182 reunited with co-founder Tom DeLonge. In addition, they announced a tour in 2023.

The line-up of DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker will also release a comeback single called “Edging” on Friday (October 14th). A press release also says the band plans to release a new album next year.

DeLonge formed Blink-182 with Mark Hoppus in 1992. The band’s debut album, Cheshire Cat, was released in 1995, followed by “Dammit”-featuring Dude Ranch in 1997.

After former drummer Scott Raynor was laid off from the band in 1998, Travis Barker joined the band in time to record the 1999 multi-platinum album Enema of the State, which contains the hit single “What’s My Age Again?” and “All the Small Things.”

In 2001, they released their first number one album in the US, Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. DeLonge and Barker released a side project in 2002 as a duo. This is his self-titled Box Car Racer album. A year after, Blink-182 dropped a self-titled album ahead of revealing an indefinite break in 2005. 

DeLonge put his efforts into his band Angels & Airwaves, who released their debut album in 2006, while Barker embarked on a career as a prolific drummer, particularly in pop punk and hip hop.

Barker was involved in a plane crash in 2008 that resulted in the three returning for a reunion in 2009. Blink-182 dropped Neighborhoods in 2011 and stayed on tour in the early 2010s. Then, DeLonge left the band in 2015. 

After DeLonge left the band, Blink-182 recruited Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba. During this time they released his next two albums: California in 2016 and Nine in 2019.

In 2021, Hoppus learned he had been diagnosed with cancer. However, he later confirmed that he was free from cancer.

In an August 2022 interview with People, Hoppus said DeLonge and Barker visited him before starting chemotherapy.

“It was the first time that all three of us were in the same room in, like, five years,” Hoppus stated. 

“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… Everybody’s in a really great place right now.”
