Blink-182_2015

Like a “Reckless Abandon” rollercoaster, legendary pop punk trio Blink-182 have announced their long-awaited reunion tour is coming to deliver nostalgic mayhem to Melbourne in February 2024. After constant “Up All Night” fan anticipation, Mark, Tom and Travis will bring the original Blink-182 lineup back together for the first time in 10 years. The band’s triumphant tour announcement has fans ready to “Rock Show” like it’s 1999 all over again…

Where to stay

Staying in a self-contained Airbnb apartment while visiting Melbourne offers the perfect combination of convenience, amenities, and local flavor. These apartments, like those offered by Mega Style Apartments located across Melbourne’s CBD and Southbank, provide spacious, fully-furnished accommodations with everything you need for a comfortable stay. From well-equipped kitchens and laundry facilities to access to on-site gyms, pools, and recreation areas, you’ll enjoy all the perks of home right in the heart of the city. The locations also can’t be beat – walking distance to attractions like Federation Square, the Yarra River, and Rod Laver Arena. And you’ll get to live like a local by staying in a stylish downtown neighborhood. For affordable rates, home-style amenities, and easy access to everything Melbourne has to offer, a self-contained Airbnb apartment is a wonderful lodging option.

The Significance of the Reunion

Tom DeLonge amicably left Blink-182 in 2015, making this 2024 tour a special full circle moment for the band and their loyal fans. His return recaptures the iconic magic of the Blink-182 lineup that rocked the 1990s and early 2000s. Like longtime fans, the band members themselves are ecstatic about this reunion. As Travis Barker said:

“I’m stoked to be playing music with Tom and Mark again…”

What New Music is Coming

Blink-182 plan to release their 10th studio album in 2023, likely ahead of the tour. This will be the hugely anticipated first album featuring Tom on lead guitar/vocals since 2011. If the recent single “Edging” is any indication, the new songs could be some of Blink’s best yet – bringing together the band’s classic pop punk sound with a fresh new energy.

The world is ready for Blink-182 to conquer 2024!
