The production will be their biggest tour to date, with concerts confirmed in the UK, Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand and their first-ever shows in Latin America.
The three original Blink-182 members – who are set to release new single Edging on Friday – met up before Mark was undergoing treatment for cancer last year and he revealed the three were in a good place earlier this year.
He said of the band’s relationship: ‘It’s actually better than it used to be. ‘There was no agenda (when they met up). There were no lingering grudges. It felt very back to what it should be: three friends sitting in a room.’
