Update: Blink 182 confirm fourSidewaves?

CLICK HERE FOR THE OFFICIAL BLINK 182 SOUNDWAVE SIDESHOW DATES.

UPDATE: A representative from Soundwave has told FL that no additional Blink shows have been confirmed and that the dates posted on the Triple M website were based on rumour, not fact. Those dates have since been removed. Festival boss AJ Maddah has confirmed that the official dates will be released this week.

Blink 182 will play not one but four Soundwave Festival sideshows in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney next year.

Triple M has confirmed the dates for each of the shows and according to AJ Maddah the venues for each will be announced this Friday, with tickets going on sale the same day. While he originally said that there would only be one Blink sideshow – to be held at the Riverstage in Brisbane – the festival boss changed his mind soon after, indicating there would be at least two.

Maddah has previously revealed that tickets for the all-ages show will be priced “between $95 and $110”.

Recently FL went in to bat for the pop-punk heroes, defending their 1999 cross-over hit Enema Of The State. Check it out here

Blink will play alongside the likes of Metallica, Linkin Park and A Perfect Circle at the now sold out Soundwave Festival this February.

Blink 182 Soundwave Festival sideshows

Brisbane – Friday 22 February

From UrbanDictionary: "The jib is a head sail used for sailing down wind, and some say that it is sailor slang for the face."

Or maybe MAB was making a very off-reference to a wedding. If so, well played MAB.

I've really, really gone off The Wonder Years. I saw their headline shows (whenever they were, can't remember) and really enjoyed myself and had a fun night, but ever since that tour with Parkway I just can't seem to handle them. Granted it certainly wasn't the crowd for them since YM@6 pulled out, etc, but I just felt they conducted themselves really badly and came across as very pretentious and 'wanky'.

What did they do that made them seem that way? Jus' wonderin'

I saw them at Next (DAL club) as a sideshow for that Parkway tour. First time ever seeing them and I hadn't really listened to them properly beforehand, but it was one of the best shows I went to last year. Now that I've had the time to listen to them and get to know the songs, I'm keen to see them again.

AJ - Guys, still no approval from Blink for announcement. Could happen any second between now & show day You'll hear it here the second I have it. Schedule got a bit more complicated cause we added Adelaide in the last minute

grattan said on the 28th Sep, 2012

Sideshow roll out (again according to AJ) Blink first, then Garbage, then Tomahawk!

Guys, there wont be a blink SideWave in Adelaide. Band & I spent a month trying so hard to make the schedule work & we just couldn't. #SW13

Yeah, sure he tried hard. He couldn't give a fuck.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 10th Oct, 2012

No, they tried very hard.

They just couldn't find a flight that arrived in Adelaide 30 minutes before the gig and left 30 minutes after they walked off stage.

Have to get out of Adelaide quickly. Farken.

What is the Sidney Myer Music Bowl like as a venue?
I was ready at 6am (Perth time) and only lawn tickets were available? Are lawn tickets bad? The map makes look like it's really far from the stage :/
