Punk pop band Blink-182 is coming to Abbotsford Centre in September, it was announced today.

The band performs Sept. 18 at 7 p.m, with guests A Day to Remember, The All-American Rejects and DJ Spider. Tickets go on sale starting Friday, May 6 at 10 a.m.

The tour will coincide with the release of Blink-182’s highly anticipated seventh album, California, set for July 1.

Since their humble beginnings 24 years ago, when they started playing in a San Diego garage, Blink-182 has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide and rocked audiences from Adelaide to Zurich.

They combine high-energy dynamics with an artistic ambition that transcends any genre.

Now with Matt Skiba (of Alkaline Trio) joining the band as singer/guitarist, Blink-182 starts a new chapter.

Skiba debuted with the band in March 2015 with a live performance at the MusInk Tattoo and Music Festival.

The band premiered their brand new single, Bored To Death, on KROQ radio in Los Angeles yesterday (April 27), where they also revealed details behind their massive North American summer tour.

The tour, promoted by Live Nation, kicks off July 22 in San Diego and takes the band to nearly 50 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Bored To Death is the first new music since the release of the band’s Dogs Eating Dogs EP in 2012.  It’s also the first time fans will hear music that was written with Skiba.

Tickets for the Abbotsford show will be available at livenation.com, at all Ticketmaster outlets and by phone at 1-855-985-5000.

Prices range from $35 to $79.50 (plus taxes and service charges).
