They're getting the band back together!

It's good news for fans of multi-award-winning band Blink 182, as they have announced this morning that they are coming to New Zealand in 2024 and releasing a brand-new single.

For the first time in nearly 10 years, Blink-182 fans will see Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker reunite for their biggest tour ever.

Having sold more than 50 million albums worldwide and securing a loyal following, Blink-182 became a defining rock band for children of the 90s who will no doubt be dusting off their distressed denim in anticipation.

Playing in America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Kiwi fans will be treated to not one but two shows - Auckland on March 1st, and again in Christchurch on March 4th, 2024.

The exciting news comes after Hoppus revealed last year he had been writing new music for the band.

One month before announcing his cancer diagnosis, the star appeared in a Twitch live stream where he was asked if new music was on its way and he said: "I recorded literally yesterday.”

"So upcoming recording is happening as we speak. It was new Blink, not Simple Creatures or anything else."

After being diagnosed with unspecified cancer, the star said he wasn't letting his health get in the way of him working on new music and said: "I'm blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this."
