www.warpedtour.com – The Vans Warped Tour and Blink-182 come together for a one-time only show on July 14 in Minneapolis, Minn. at Somerset Park.

LAUNCH Media Inc. today announced that MCA recording artist Blink-182 will join this summer’s Vans Warped Tour for a one-time only performance in Minneapolis at Somerset Park on July 14.

Veterans to the Warped Tour, Blink-182, first played the punk and skate festival back in 1997. Since then, they have experienced worldwide success, with their records reaping platinum status and their concert tours packing ’em in all across Europe, Australia, Asia, and the Americas.

Just six weeks away from the June 12 release of their forthcoming album, “Take Off Your Pants and Jacket,” Blink-182’s planned return to Warped proves they have not forgotten their roots. The album’s first single, “The Rock Show,” contains the lyrics, “Couldn’t wait for the summer and the Warped Tour/I remember it’s the first time that I saw her… there,” highlighting the band’s strong ties to the tour and its fans.

“I’ve always loved the Warped Tour and I love all the bands on the Warped Tour,” said Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus on re-uniting with the tour. “Those are some of the best shows I’ve ever played.”

Tickets are currently available online via Warpedtour.com (www.warpedtour.com) at unbeatably low prices for this summer’s trek, which kicks off June 22 in Phoenix. Heading into its seventh year, this year’s tour combines a dynamic indie-punk line-up, along with extreme sports, the antics of Incredibly Strange Wrestling and youth lifestyle booths.

Some of the bands leading the charge for the festival are: 311, AFI, Alien Ant Farm, The Ataris, Dub Pistols, Fenix*TX, Guttermouth, H20, Less Than Jake, The Living End, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Misfits, New Found Glory, Pennywise, Rancid, Rollins Band and The Vandals.

Various artists will appear on different legs of the tour and each date will include a local stage with bands chosen by each market’s promoter.
