Blink-182 Cancel and Rearrange UK/European Tour

Blink-182 have cancelled their Summer 2011 UK and European tour dates, as the band are going to be concentrating on recording a new album.

The tour will now take place in the Summer of 2012.

Blink-182 released the following statement:

""From Mark. Tom & Travis: It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce our planned 2011 European Summer tour has been rescheduled. When we booked the tour last year, we were confident that we would have the new album out before the Summer. Turns out we were mistaken as the album is taking longer than we thought and won't be out till later this year. We hoped we would have some new songs to play rather than do another 'greatest hits tour' which you all saw last Summer. As much as we know our fans would be cool with that, we feel that we owe you guys something new when you spend your money to come see us. Frankly, it's what needs to continue for us to remain vital. The three of us are working very hard to do what we set out to do when we re-formed...get a new blink-182 album recorded. Apologies to all of our fans who have bought tickets and were looking forward to the Summer shows but we'll be back soon with the rescheduled dates in Summer 2012, have a new album out and be able to play new songs for you all. Thanks for all of the continued support and understanding. The rescheduled dates are on our website ( and are listed below.

NEW UK/IRISH DATES ADDED: Onsale date is Thursday 21st April 2011

For those of you who hoped to see the us at Oxegen and T In The Park festivals this year, we're very sorry that we won’t be there as we were looking forward to playing them so much.
