Recently reformed Pop-punk heroes, Blink 182 have finally answered fan’s prayers and announced their plans for a massive July tour across America.

Mark Hoppus announced that the mammouth tour will take them through the States from July 24th all the way until October, taking some famous friends on the road with them aswell. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Hoppus said: We started talking about bands to tour with and Weezer was actually one of the first ones that came up. They wanted to do the tour, and so did Fall Out Boy. It worked out perfectly.”

Unfortunately those hoping to watch the trio performing on the same stage will be out of luck, as Fall Out Boy have signed on for two-thirds of the dates, with Weezer filling the remaining third.

It’s no secret that Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz is friends with the Blink boys, speaking to RS he said: “When we started our band, we were like, ‘Man, that’d be so awesome to meet Blink-182′. It’s been a great stretch of headlining tours the last few years, but there’s something interesting about opening up for bands when you have to rope the audience in.”

Attempting to cater to a credit-crunch plagued audience, Blink have also announced that tickets will be as low as $20 for the arenas. “We want this to be an experience that brings the show out to the audience.” Hoppus commented, also revealing that Kanye West and Daft Punk‘s set designer will be incorporated into creating the live show.

No word yet on if and when they will tour the rest of the world, but a full list of tour dates have now been posted. Check them out plus details on the full set of all-star supports RIGHT HERE. Would you see the Blink/Fall Out Boy/Weezer show if it pulled into your town?
