Buzznet.com is reporting that the newly reformed Blink-182 will be hitting the concert circuit this summer with Weezer being their main supporting act.

The site claims that an "inside source" confirmed to them that the rumors of Blink-182 and Weezer touring this summer were in fact true. No tour dates have been announced nor have any labels confirmed the possible "Blinker" tour ("Bleezer" tour? "Wink" tour?), but it wouldn't be the first time that either band has paired up with another huge act for a set of tour dates.

Blink-182 has co-headlined along the likes of No Doubt and Green Day (another band they were rumored to be touring with this summer) while Weezer participated in the "Foozer" tour with the Foo Fighters in 2005.

In other Blink-182 tour news, bassist Mark Hoppus posted a snapshot of a possible setlist for the upcoming tour. The picture can be seen here. Fan favorites such as "Dammit," "All The Small Things," and "The Rock Show" are all present along with more songs spanning their entire catalog.

Additionally, Blink-182 is working on a new record which is likely to be released in early 2010.

    BLINK IS SUPER SWEET...its why i picked up a guitar (i have moved on technically ) but they are good songwriters...i hate bashing

    I would go for Weezer, and only if they played a lot of Blue/Pinkerton (which, btw, is better than anything Blink has ever put out).

    I for one strongly dislike Weezer. But I love blink. It seems i'm in the minority here.

    i think blink 182 should tour with rancid there both really good bands and both coming out with new albums even though there albums are months apart that would be the best tour!!!!

    Not really surprising since AVA opened for Weezer this fall.

    This is awesome. Blink-182 is one of those bands that never gets old. You listened to em when you were 12, and you'll still love them when you're 22.

Unless blink has a song by the same title I'm unaware of. Oh man, blink playing Muse's Stockholm Syndrome. That'd be... interesting. A very non-serious band playing a very serious song. I love blink too, but one thing they rarely are is epic, and Stockholm Syndrome (by Muse) is very epic.
    Blink has a song called stockholm syndrome...it's off their self-titled cd.

    I love the fact the 12-year old fans of blink are dumb enough to be still april fools. They are not bad but Weezer > Blink 182.

Or, you can be more accepting of all types of music. I mean, being closed-minded is an option too. Hey, if being unhappy makes you happy, do whatever makes you (un)happy. It doesn't take an open mind for music like Blink 182. It's not like they're prog rock or anything like that at all. I realize that, yet even some persist in loathing them. It's really not hard to at least be amused by them.
    Some people love incredibly large amounts of music ranging from prog to death metal to pop to classical but still don't like Blink... just because someone doesn't like them, it doesn't mean they are not open-minded to music. Maybe Blink are just really annoying to some people? Ever think about that?

    two of my favorite bands growing up, i will definitely need to see this
    <Paper Cuts>
    LOL wow all the hate comments...lighten up. If you don't like the band, don't post anything. You're wasting your time. This pretty much guarentees me free tickets, because my best friend is in love with this band. She wouldn't dare go without me.

    Where is Stay Together for the Kids on that setlist?? Or Dysentary Gary or Josie...hmmmmm

Now we're hearing this, kinda makes you wonder if Tom's doing it to try and keep the anticipation low and then surprise everyone when Blink do go on tour, if they do at all. Cus theres just a lot of conflicting stories
    I guess someone fell to hard for the April Fool's joke... Blink is definitely back dude, it's been official for awhile now.

    Wow, this would be a fantastic show, for anyone that doesn't think Weezer is good, just go listen to the blue album, if you can say those songs aren't good, you have problems.

    What, having an opinion on a single band makes him closed-minded? I like a lot of pop-punk, a lot of pop, and a lot of punk, but I've never been a big Blink fan, and I'd much rather see Weezer on their own tour.

    Yeah but c'mon, you can't force yourself to like something just because its different if you already KNOW you don't like it... I'm not a Slayer fan and I dont think seeing them live would help me like them or accept them.
