Blink-182 and Lil Wayne announce 2019 tour, including San Diego concert
What’s their age again?
The Poway-bred pop-punk band blink-182 is hitting the road in a big way this summer, 26 years after the release of its 1993 debut album.
The tour — which will feature hip-hop star Lil Wayne on most dates — will open with a June 27 Ohio concert at Nationwide Arena in Columbus and conclude with a Sept. 16 Ohio concert at Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati.
It will include three Southern California dates, starting with an Aug. 7 San Diego show at North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre (formerly Mattress Firm Amphitheatre). That will be followed by an Aug. 8 Los Angeles show at The Forum and an Aug. 27 Irvine show at FivePoint Amphitheatre.
All of the dates and cities appear below, along with ticket information. The opening acts for all dates will be the Welsh pop-punk band Neck Deep.
The tour comes 20 years after the release of blink’s “Enema of the State” album, which the band performed live in its entirety in Huntington Beach on April 27 at Back to the Beach, a two-day festival curated by blink drummer Travis Barker.
Tickets for the upcoming tour go on sale Friday at noon at and via phone at (800) 754-3000. An online pre-sale will begin Thursday at 10 a.m.
Prices for blink’s San Diego show range from $37.50 to $127.50 per ticket, plus fees.
To celebrate National Concert Week, a “very limited” number of $20 all-inclusive tickets will be available today, Monday, at 11a.m. PST and 2 p.m. EST until 10 p.m. Tuesday local time. The $20 tickets will only be available in select markets, “while supplies last.”
