    Blink 182 To Tour With Weezer And Fall Out Boy

    Post by Sykesy on Fri May 15, 2009 8:30 pm

    Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus has officially confirmed that the band will not only be touring this summer with Weezer but they will also be bringing along Fall Out Boy. Unfortunately for fans of both opening acts, you’ll only be able to see one of them depending on which show you attend.

    Bassist Mark Hoppus posted an article from the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine on his blog which confirms that the band will be hitting the stage as soon as July 24 and the tour will extend all the way into October. Joining the band on their tour will be Fall Out Boy for two-thirds of the dates and Weezer for the other one-third, reports Rolling Stone.

    "We started talking about bands to tour with and Weezer was actually one of the first ones that came up," Hoppus tells Rolling Stone. "They wanted to do the tour, and so did Fall Out Boy. It worked out perfectly."

    Bassist Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy adds, "When we started our band, we were like, ‘Man, that’d be so awesome to meet Blink-182.’" He adds, "It’s been a great stretch of headlining tours the last few years, but there’s something interesting about opening up for bands when you have to rope the audience in."

    Along with some new tunes, Blink-182 is promising a different show than fans may be accustomed to. Specifically, they’re rehearsing. "We used to walk onstage and forget our parts – we just wanted to play fast and look cool," Hoppus says in the magazine article. "This time, we want to be more artistic." Along with a new approach to their rehearsal schedule, the band will also be utilizing an "intense" light show from the set designer for Daft Punk and Kanye West.

    "We want to use the entire arena as a lighting rig and a stage," Hoppus adds. "We’re being as ambitious as possible."

    Specific dates for the tour and what dates will feature Fall Out Boy or Weezer opening have yet to be announced; however tickets will be priced from $20 for the cheapest seats and $60 for the most expensive.
