Blink 182 postpone
Blink 182 have announced that they are postponing their upcoming UK tour dates in order to finish work on their new album, their first since reforming. The new arena dates will be n the UK in June and July 2012 and the band have now also announced new shows in Ireland and Scotland. In a statement, the band said: "It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce our planned 2011 European Summer tour has been rescheduled. When we booked the tour last year, we were confident that we would have the new album out before the summer. Turns out we were mistaken as the album is taking longer than we thought and won't be out til later this year. We hoped we would have some new songs to play rather than do another 'greatest hits tour', which you all saw last summer. As much as we know our fans would be cool with that, we feel that we owe you guys something new when you spend your money to come see us. Frankly, it's what needs to continue for us to remain vital".
