Blink 182 Announce Two Intimate UK Shows

Punk-rockers Blink 182 have revealed that they will be playing two intimate UK shows in London and Manchester this summer, alongside their huge summer tour.

The intimate shows will see the band finish up their upcoming arena tour, with two club shows. The group are set to headline Manchester's o2 Apollo on July 24th and London's Brixton Academy on July 25th.

Drummer Travis Barker said: "We've super excited to be doing a couple of smaller club shows at the end of our European run"

"It's been a while since we've done shows in the UK like this and we think it will be awesome for our fans and for us too. I'm leaving next week to come over to Europe and can't wait to see all of our fans at the shows!"

The band are set to kick off off their long-awaited arena tour, after it was postponed last summer, at Birmingham's NIA on June 7th before finishing at Liverpool's Echo Arena on July 12th.

Meanwhile, the band have been forced to cancel a string of US dates, due to drummer Travis Barker needing an emergency operation. The band will reschedule a small amount of shows, but the majority of the summer tour has had to be shelved with Barker needing an urgent tonsillectomy.

Tickets for the arena tour are on sale now, while tickets for the band's two intimate shows go on sale from 9.30am on May 25.
