Blink-182, My Chemical Romance Team Up For 2011 Honda Civic Tour

The two bands will be joined by Manchester Orchestra, Rancid and Matt & Kim on select dates.

Though we’ve yet to hit the summer touring season, we’ve already got one trek circled: The 2011 Honda Civic Tour, which will see Blink-182 and My Chemical Romance joining forces on an epic, 40-plus-date jaunt that runs from late summer into the fall.

Also along for the ride are [artist id="2486892"]Manchester Orchestra[/artist], [artist id="1011"]Rancid[/artist] and [artist id="2448334"]Matt & Kim[/artist], who will open on select dates. Members of Blink’s and MCR’s fan clubs will have first crack at tickets to all shows, in an exclusive pre-sale that will begin on June 6. Then, on June 8, anyone who “likes” the Honda Civic Tour’s Facebook profile will gain access to tickets. And finally, all remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public on June 10 via Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

2011 marks the 10th anniversary for the Honda Civic Tour, which kicked off in 2001 with Blink-182 on the bill and, in following years, has featured everyone from Paramore, the Black Eyed Peas and Panic! at the Disco to Incubus and Maroon 5. The so-called “deca-versary” trek gets under way in Holmdel, New Jersey, on August 5, and crisscrosses the continent before coming to a close on October 15 in San Diego (in what will be a de facto hometown show for the Blink guys). For more information on all shows, check out the Honda Civic Tour’s Facebook page.

“It’s great to be going back out on the Honda Civic Tour,” Blink’s Mark Hoppus said in a statement. “We had a blast kicking off the tour 10 years ago, and this summer we’ll be taking it to the next level with our friends My Chemical Romance.”
