Tonight, the 2023 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival schedule was revealed. Shared on social media with the caption “take off your pants and jacket,” a close look at the Sahara stage’s itinerary for Friday, April 14, revealed that Blink-182 are set to play a previously unannounced set. It will be their first concert with the reunited classic lineup.
Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus, and Travis Barker announced they were getting the band back together late last year. The tour marks their their first outings as a trio since DeLonge departed the band in 2015. They also released the new song “Edging” last year.
The band was set to begin a tour in March across South America—including sets at Lollapalooza’s festivals in Brazil, Chile, and Argentina—but were forced to postpone those appearances after Travis Barker sustained an injury that required surgery on his finger. Following their appearance this weekend, Blink-182’s North American tour is currently scheduled to begin in May with dates alongside Turnstile.
