Blink 182 will headline their first UK arena tour in over eight years this July.

They will be joined by special guests The All-American Rejects and The Blackout at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on July 12.

Blink 182 were formed in San Diego in 1992 by Mark Hoppus and Tom De Longe and later joined by drummer Travis Barker.

The bands breakthrough album, Enema Of The State, was released in 1999 and went on to sell in excess of 15 million copies worldwide. Their next two albums, Take Off Your Pants And Jacket (2001) and Blink 182 (2003) cemented their position as a pop punk supergroup. Additionally the band have won a number of MTV Awards throughout their career.

Their latest album Neighborhoods was released last year.
