Blink-182 Announce Tour Dates
May 15th, 2009
Yesterday I wrote about how Weezer, Blink-182 & Fall Out Boy were set to tour this summer and today Blink-182 announced tour dates for their summer tour. I mentioned how they could play VFest but that is now out of the question as the punk rockers will be playing the Molson Amphitheatre August 23. The recently re-united trio will hit a total of 8 Canadian cities including Toronto.
Since all three bands were mentioned together I assumed that they would be playing together but after reading an article on Billboard.com it seems like Blink will have different opening bands on certain legs of the tour. In addition to the Weezer and Fall Out Boy mentions as openers Panic At The Disco, All-American Rejects, Taking Back Sunday, Asher Roth and Chester French have been added to the list of possible openers.
Nothing against any of the bands listed but I personally would not attend the Toronto show unless Weezer are on the bill. They haven’t released who will be their opening act on any of the days so here is my question to you. Who would you want to see as the opening band in the city you live in that they are playing at?
Here are the full Canadian dates:
July 28 – GM Place, Vancouver BC
July 30 – Saddledome, Calgary AB
July 31 – Rexall Place, Edmonton AB
August 1 – Credit Union Center, Saskatoon SK
August 2 – MTS Centre, Winnipeg MB
August 7 – Colisee Pepsi, Quebec City QC
August 8 – Bell Centre, Montreal QC
August 23 – Molson Amphitheatre, Toronto ON
