Blink 182 have confirmed the new dates for their postponed shows in the UK and Ireland.
The All The Small Things trio were set to start their tour dates on this side of the pond in September, with dates at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow, the SSE Arena in Belfast and the 3Arena in Dublin, but they were forced to axe the dates as drummer Travis Barker attended to an "urgent family matter".
Now the band have confirmed they will make good on the postponed shows in 2024, playing Belfast SSE Arena on 26th August, Dublin's Royal Hospital Kilmainham on 27th August and the SSE OVO Hydro on 29th and 30th August.
Fans who had tickets for the previous dates will be able to attend the new shows and any remaining tickets are on sale on Ticketmaster now.
When Blink initially announced the bad news last month, they released a statement, which read: "Due to an urgent family matter, Travis has had to return home to the States. The Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin shows are being postponed. More information in regards to his return to Europe and rescheduled dates will be provided as soon as available."

It was later revealed that the drummer's pregnant wife Kourtney Kardashian had to undergo "life-saving" surgery for their unborn son.
