Blink-182's first tour with new guitarist swings through MN this fall


Blink-182 will swing through Minnesota on a big tour – the band's first without Tom Delonge.

The band debuted a new song "Bored to Death" late Wednesday, the first single off the new album "California" due out July 1. It'll be their seventh studio album, and first in five years.

It's also the first single with Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio – he replaces DeLonge, the vocalist/guitarist who split from Blink-182 more than a year ago, Consequence of Sound reported.

There's a long 2016 tour coming up for the band, which was announced on the radio station KROQ Thursday morning.

The Minnesota show comes in the last half of the run, a Sept. 8 date at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. All Time Low will also perform.

Update: Ticket info has been released. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 6 at 10 a.m.(though Citi card members get pre-sale access on May 3).

Ticketmaster has prices from $42.75-$75, though that's without any fees.

Here's the full list of tour dates, which was posted on Reddit.
