Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has tweeted ahead of the band’s reunion tour and upcoming new album after Coachella, “2 Coachella weekends in a row with an unhealed finger. Recorded last 4 songs on the album while I still had stitches. Tour in 4 days 🤔”
A fan speculated on Reddit about new tour dates, “Possibly 2024 yeah, but the 2023 run should be fun.
The May/June run will be great for them to find their footing, play with setlists, they’ll have 2 new songs out.
They have August off to recharge, and I am positive the album will drop during this time so the band can fully enjoy the album launch.
Then you have the Euro Tour from September that will almost act as a bunch of new release shows.”

Blink-182 were ready for Coachella
After uniting for the first time since 2015 to perform at Coachella a couple weeks ago, the punk rock band then returned to the music festival for a headlining performance during its closing night. The band’s original members Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker, and Tom DeLonge graced the stage after being announced as part of the festival lineup one day before the festival was set to begin.
This time, their performance was set to take place on the festival’s main stage on Sunday night at 9:20 p.m. Skrillex was also performing Sunday night.
The change to the music festival’s lineup comes after a representative for Frank Ocean, 35, told PEOPLE that the singer suffered “an injury to his leg on festival grounds in the week leading up” to weekend one of Coachella, resulting in two fractures and a sprain in his left leg.
Though he performed at the annual festival in Indio, Calif. on Sunday night, the “Pyramids” singer had to rework his planned show due to his injuries and will sit out the second weekend of Coachella on doctor’s advice.
Ocean’s performance also was notably not played on YouTube’s official Coachella livestream like Bad Bunny and BLACKPINK, who headlined on Friday and Saturday night.
