Blink 182 To Tour With My Chemical Romance

It looks like 2011 is shaping up to be the summer of pop punk, as Blink 182 and My Chemical Romance will be hitting the road together for a 40-date that kicks off August 5 in Holmdel, NJ and ends October 15 with a show in San Diego, CA. While My Chemical Romance will be joining the band for the entire road trek, Rancid, Manchester Orchestra and Matt and Kim will also perform at select dates. Singer/guitarist Tom Delonge told Spin “These are our biggest shows yet. Our last [reunion] tour was by far the biggest thing we’ve ever done and I think our new record warrants the growth of the band. You know, we’ve achieved so much more than we’ve ever imagined, so even if, like, three people show up for the shows, we’ll say, ‘Wow, that was quite a ride.’” Delonge says the band will be playing new material from their upcoming album at each date, and describe the songs as having “stadium rock sensibility.” “I don’t want to spit out song titles, but the new stuff builds a lot more. The songs have intros, crescendos, and things that lend themselves to great lighting and loud volume. It’s not orthodox punk at all.” Tickets for the tour, sponsored by Honda, go on sale June 10 via Ticketmaster and Live Nation. Those who want tickets early can buy them at Honda Civic Tour’s Facebook page.
