Blink 182 Confirm ‘Soundwave 2013’ Appearance

PLUS! Travis Barker WILL Join The Band Down Under…

Last month they teased fans about plans to tour Down Under – and now Blink 182 have made their Aussie appearance official!

Announcing the news on Instagram, music promoter AJ Maddah has confirmed the band will be performing at ‘Soundwave 2013.’

"MARK + TOM + TRAVIS. Yes, TRAVIS. #SW13 #BLINK182" he wrote.

The news is sure to thrill diehard fans, especially after drummer Travis Barker had initially told followers he WOULDN’T be joining his bandmates on tour.

The musician, who has a longtime fear of flying since being involved in a plane crash three years ago, wrote on Instagram last month,

"Mark and Tom will be there in Feb of next year but with a [fill] in drummer cause I don't fly. Sorry brotha.”

But, we’re thrilled to hear he’s since changed his mind and will be here in February next year.

As for who else will be rocking out on stage at the five date bash, which will take place in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, promoter AJ tweeted that the line-up was tipped for release on August 8!
