Back with a bang, pop punk icons Blink-182 are set to hit our shores in the new year, as Getintothis’ Craig MacDonald finds out. 

Pop punk icons Blink-182 have announced details of a huge UK tour for 2017, with the trio set to return to Liverpool for the first time in four years at the Echo Arena on July 15.

The tour will be the first with new vocalist and guitarist Matt Skiba, with the former Alkaline Trio member replacing professional UFO hunter Tom DeLonge in light of his departure. Together with Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker, the trio will be bringing their chart topping seventh album California to ten arenas throughout the UK next summer.
