Blink 182 Add Extra Date & Tickets To Soundwave 2013 Sideshows

After an 8 year absence from Australian shores, pop punk icons Blink 182 recently are finally making their triumphant return to Australia as part of Soundwave 2013. Satiating fans’ desires, they also announced a handful of sideshows in addition to the 5 date Soundwave Festival, sold out nationwide.

Prophetically, it took only 182 seconds for their Melbourne show at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl to completely sell out, (well, 3 minutes but don’t let that get in the way of a good yarn) as fans flooded the box office and online sales to get their hands on tickets. Brisbane Blink lovers were equally ravenous as tickets got snapped up.

To meed demand, a second Melbourne date has been added at the Myer Music Bowl on Wednesday 27th February, while Brisbane has an extra allocation of tickets to enjoy for their show at the RNA Showgrounds on Friday 22nd February.

Tickets for both shows go on sale next Friday 23rd November at 9am (full details below).

The news comes after some major changes in the Blink 182 camp, with the band recently quitting their label to become an independent band.

The pop punk legends have been part of the Interscope group of record companies, previously under the Geffen banner, and before that with MCA Records since 1997 for their sophomore album Dude Ranch.

Shedding the constraints of a major label is a big step for the group who went on indefinite hiatus in 2005 following a fall out between the members. Now Australian fans look set to not only enjoy a very honest Blink 182 record sometime in the future, but could also be amongst the first crowds to hear any new material.
