Mark Hoppus Drops Blink-182 Firing Bombshell


Mark Hoppus joked about Tom DeLonge getting kicked out of Blink-182 ‘every few years’ in new social media posts, just after the band fired Matt Skiba for DeLonge’s return.

He wrote, “Tom is a best friend/confidant/soul mate. He and I spent the whole day yesterday laughing. We all did. Blink is in a really good place.”

He added, “That said, he has to get kicked out of the band every few years.”

Tom DeLonge is officially back with Blink-182 today and it seems Matt Skiba has been let go.

Blink-182 has some major plans ahead

Travis Barker had seemingly teasing a Blink-182 themed reunion. The band, as we were last aware now consists of Matt Skiba, Mark Hoppus, and Travis Barker, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t be seeing a reunion of the original lineup featuring Tom DeLonge. There have been some small tidbits of easter eggs left for Blink fans like a re-issue of Tom DeLonge’s Fender strat which was made famous in his Blink-182 days. We will have to see if the lineup changes.

Jason Tate recently opened up the Blink-182 tour announcement this month in his last two newsletters. It has been noted that Tom DeLonge is trying to get Turnstile on tour. He also noted that October will be ‘fun’ as fans will witness releases from Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jepsen, and The 1975. He claimed that the Blink-182 tour announcement will also be made.

Reports have emerged that Blink 182 is set to perform at Lollapalooza Brazil in 2023, likely with Tom DeLonge back. Lollapalooza Brasil 2023 is getting closer and fans are eagerly waiting for the official announcements. The event promises to have “the best line-up in the festival’s history” and it is quite possible that the three headliners have already been decided. Q101 has doubled down and stated that they were blowing Live Nation’s ‘nut’ on an upcoming Blink-182 tour announcement. Fans are speculating that a huge announcement will be made soon.

Amid this, it has come to light that domain registration was updated recently which has added to the hype of the band’s reunion with Tom DeLonge. The updated site also has Sony Music Entertainment as label.

Fans have spotted billboards in Peru that advertise the band. It is being said that the band will go to South America for a tour there. The band also wiped their Instagram clean. They hid all their posts from the Instagram page as a way to generate hype and get fans talking. The band also wiped Matt Skiba from the band’s history after it was rumoured that he was fired. The official website of the band is also under construction.
