Although the longtime pop-punk outfit Blink-182 said goodbye to original member Tom Delonge last year, the band hasn't stalled their plans for new albums and tours. Last month. the band announced the dates for a North American tour, with the most recent additions for stops in Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton and Calgary. The summer tour will also feature pop-punk bands All Time Low, A Day to Remember and the All-American Rejects.
Blink-182 will hit major amphitheaters this summer beginning July 7 in Winnipeg. Prior to their tour launch, the band will appear at the Dover, Delaware-based music festival Firefly, where they'll share the stage with an eclectic list of artists like Death Cab For Cutie, Ellie Goulding and Major Lazer. Tickets for all of Blink 182's stops this summer are on sale, and prices for many dates are rising quickly on the resale market.

As it stands, resale tickets are averaging $130 for the entirety of the summer, and the band's highest price points are for cities like Long Island, New York and Holmdel, New Jersey. The priciest show is on track to be the band's Aug. 14 stop at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Jersey, where tickets are averaging $253, with the get-in price up for grabs for $66. The band's biggest bargain of the tour is scheduled to be their Sept. 11 stop at The Hollywood Casino in Tinley Park, Illinois, where tickets are averaging just $72, with a get-in of only $44. To compare, a 4-day pass for Firefly Festival two months prior is averaging $402, with the cheapest pass going for $211, according to data provided by Razorgator. The tour will officially wrap on October 1 after back-to-back nights in Los Angeles at The Forum. Fans traveling to the area for the show can secure parking in Los Angeles through Parkwhiz.com.
Without Delonge, the current trio of Blink 182 features Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Matt Skiba, who is also a current member of the band Alkaline Trio. On May 18, the band released a 14-second song, "Built This Pool," through the band's official YouTube page. Blink's first album with Skiba playing guitar is due July 1, and is called California.
