Blink-182 Sidewave announced

CLICK HERE FOR THE OFFICIAL SOUNDWAVE SIDESHOWS.

Update – 24th August:
Soundwave boss AJ Maddah now says that there won’t be a Blink-182 show as the Riverstage: “My mistake. Blink sideshow will not be happening at Riverstage”. It’s not clear where the show will be moved.

Soundwave Festival 2013 tickets went on sale this morning and quickly sold out in Brisbane and Melbourne, which is good news for festival boss AJ Maddah who’d predicted a quick sale, but not so great news if you missed out.

If you’re a distraught Blink-182 fan in Brisbane there’s a silver living with Maddah confirming that the band – Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and drummer Travis Barker – will play a Sidewave show at the Riverstage on the night before the first Soundwave stop at the RNA Showgrounds. Maddah has also revealed that tickets for the all-ages show will be priced “between $95 and $110”.

The Brisbane Sidewave gig will be the first Blink-182 show in Australia since 2004 for the pop-punk heroes and Maddah says he’s also “working on” a Blink Sidewave for Melbourne. Maddah had announced earlier this month that the band would “most likely [play a Sidewave show] in Sydney” as well.

We’ve been promised “some legendary sideshows” next year with Soundwave – so expect Blink to be joined by some big name support acts at their Sidewave gigs.

Blink 182 Sidewave:

Friday 22nd February – Riverstage, Brisbane

Tickets “between $95 and $110” on sale soon

Fairly sure Maddah said he was going to try and get Billy Talent on it as well.

Yeah I read that tweet too.

I thought the picks appearing everywhere were love hearts and thought fasterlouder had been hacked by valentines day trolls. Perhaps I should have posted that in the relevant thread, but that's got 52 replies already. I can't be bothered reading it.

saw b182 live on the dammit tour back in the day, worst fucking live band ive ever seen, someone actually through shit onstage at them, unwritten law stole the show - hopefully theyve grown and improved as a live band...

Mike Patton is the most overrated man in music.

Even as a Patton fan, you like Unwritten Law?

jacegalvin

jacegalvin said on the 26th Aug, 2012

How do you know he's a Patton fan?

ThatDude123

ThatDude123 said on the 26th Aug, 2012

You're right, we don't. All the hints are way too subtle. Could be misreading it completely.

In fact, I think he's a RHCP fan. Yep.

EDIT: Now I just make no sense. People should ask my permission before posting anything, so they can ensure none of this posting at the same time (or whatever) occurs.

Did Bill Hicks ever ask for anyone's permission? No! And so shouldn't you!

I don't think you have to like Unwritten Law to say they upstaged Blink 182.

RAMONESelaar

RAMONESelaar said on the 26th Aug, 2012

Blink must have been a whole new level of terrible if Unwritten Law managed to upstage them.

Stugalug

Stugalug said on the 26th Aug, 2012

I saw Blink at few times in the 90's at various festivals and their fart jokes* were more entertaining than the music they played.


*Jokes were terrible and childish.
