Tom DeLonge has returned to Blink-182 and the band are hitting the road for a massive world tour.

The band, which released new single Edging last year, will be hitting the road in 2023 and 2024. Blink will be playing shows across the globe from North America to Europe and the UK and even Australia.

The next stop on the tour will take place at the Altice Arena in Lisbon on Monday, 2 October.

The return of DeLonge marks a return to Blink-182’s most successful line-up, with Tom, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker. The trio were responsible for 1999’s Enema of the State which has sold more than 15 million copies around the world, as well as 2001’s Take Off Your Pants and Jacket, 2003’s self-titled album and 2011’s Neighbourhoods.

The line-up of DeLonge, Hoppus and Barker was the second incarnation of the band, following the departure of original drummer Scott Raynor in 1998. Between 2015 and 2022, Alkaline Trio lead singer Matt Skiba replaced DeLonge in the band.

But when the band hit the road in 2023 and 2024, they will not be alone. A number of support acts have already been announced for the world tour. Here is all you need to know:
