The band announced their comeback with a promotional video on social media, in which fans were seen saying that they would “do anything to make them come to their hometown.”
The video also featured a preview of Ending, with the lyrics, “I ain’t that cool/ A little fu**ed in the head/ They’ll be hangin’ me quick when I’m back from the dead/ Get the rope, get the rope, get the rope, get the rope.”

Blunk-182 will be touring across North and South America, Europe and Australia for their comeback world tour in 2023. The tour is all set to kick off in Tijuana, Mexico, at the Imperial GNP festival on March 11 and will continue in destinations across Peru, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay and Colombia before concluding the South American leg in Mexico on April 2.
The band will then move to North America, having their first concert at Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota, followed by shows in Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, Cleveland, New York, Boston, Washington, D.C, Brooklyn, Hershey, Los Angeles, Seattle, Vancouver, Dallas, Tampa, Houston and Austin.
