Blink-182 Could Still Come To Australia In 2012

Written by Brayden Darke on March 5, 2012

There’s been rumours of a Blink-182 Australian tour for a while now, but it was always thought that it was very unlikely due to drummer Travis Barker’s problem with flying.

Barker has been afraid of flying since he was involved in a 2008 plane crash that killed four people. It was revealed that Big day Out promoters were after the trio for this year’s festival, but the deal had fallen through due to the drummer’s problems and that the option of a replacement drummer was not going to happen.

Now TMN have revealed in an interview with Tom Delonge that they are thinking about a tour, and it will most likely be a “boat ride thing” to get it happening.

“We’re talking about coming down.”

The band will be touring again soon on the back of their latest album Neighborhoods

“We just put out a record but we’re only doing two tours. We’ve already done one of them and then a year later we’re gonna do the second one.”

At what point they’ll be here is unknown, and it could take some serious planning.

“Boats only happen at certain times of the year, it’s a long boat ride.”

DeLonge is out here with his other band Angels & Airwaves, playing on the Soundwave 2012 line-up as well as playing some Sidewaves.
