blink-182 big announcement November 6th?!

blink-182 are making a 'very special announcement' on Sunday November 6th, from 7pm. As this is the BBC, this probably means 7pm UK time, so for you USA fans thats 2pm EST or 11am PST. Now there's a very high probability that the announcement is the 'official' unveiling of the European tour. There has already been a few dates semi-announced for this, including Download Festival in France, which suggests they'll also be performing at the UK Download festival as well. It being the European tour would also make sense because they're announcing it on UK radio, and the image above (and posted in magazines) randomly states '2017',

MTV: Summer Tour Opening Acts Share Blink-182 Memories

From MTV.com:

Blink-182 Tour Openers Share Their Favorite Blink Memories

‘They not only have great music, but also really care about entertaining,’ Chester French’s D.A. Wallach tells MTV News.

There seems to be a common thread running through the (seemingly) unrelated slate of bands Blink-182 have tapped to open dates on their summer tour: They’re all huge Blink fans.

In fact, many of the younger acts on the bill — bands like Panic at the Disco and Chester French — have some pretty vivid memories of seeing Blink on their previous tours.

“We went to Blink’s [2002] Pop Disaster Tour with Green Day and Jimmy Eat World, and that was the first show that we’d seen in an arena,” Panic drummer Spencer Smith told MTV News. “We didn’t have floor seats, and at one point, one of the bands asked everyone to jump down, so we took part in that, and that was the first, like, bombarding-the-stage moment of my life, so that was cool.”

“I saw them when I was a little kid. It was rowdy,” Chester French’s D.A. Wallach added. “I was, like, pre-pubescent, so [there were] lots of insecurity issues and self-righteousness, but it was awesome. One thing we try to do — and I think all the bands on this tour do — they not only have great music, but also really care about entertaining and don’t shy away from comedy, which is something we think is tremendously under-represented in music today.”

Oh, about that comedy. Blink have never shied away from working an off-color joke (or 17) into their onstage banter, something that leaves even the more established bands on the tour in awe.

“We grew up with Blink-182, and there’s a certain chemistry that Mark and Tom have going when they’re onstage together,” Taking Back Sunday frontman Adam Lazzara laughed. “They really get going and say anything, and I’m excited to watch that every night.”

The codes MIXJOI and AEGJOI work for the Las Vegas presale.  STIMULUS does not work.

UPDATE: Mark tweeted:

For the las vegas show, the password for the presale is back to “stimulus”. Sorry for the confusion. Not my fault, I just play bass. Badly.
