Blink-182 have announced a fifth Melbourne concert for their 2024 Australia tour.

Today, concert promoter Live Nation Australia announced that the band has added a fifth Melbourne show to take place on February 29 at the Rod Laver Arena. It will also be the final Melbourne gig to be added to Blink-182’s extensive Australian run of shows.

All four previously announced Melbourne concerts are sold out.

Vodafone tickets in advance for the newly announced Melbourne gigs will go on sale tomorrow (June 14) at 12 local time for only 48 hours. Friday (June 16) Live Nation tickets on sale in advance will be on sale until 11.00 on June 19.

General tickets will then be made available from 12.00 local time on Monday 19 June via Live Nation.

In October, Blink-182 released ‘Edging’, the band’s first single with DeLonge since 2012. It will be featured on the band’s upcoming ninth album. The record has yet to be formally unveiled, but DeLonge has already described it as “the best album of our career” as well as their “most progressive”.

Shortly before the new single was released, DeLonge shared a personal message with Skiba, thanking him for his work with the band. Skiba later responded, saying he’s “really happy” for the reunited trio.

In April, Travis Barker shared a promising update about the band’s upcoming album, saying that “the album will be finished before we go on tour.” Blink-182 were originally scheduled to kick off their world tour in March with a tour of South America, but those dates were pushed back to 2024 due to Barker injuring himself while drumming. The band kicked off their tour in May following their surprise last-minute addition to Coachella in April.
