One of the world’s biggest contemporary rock groups, American band Blink-182 will be gracing New York with their presence for three magical concerts in 2023.
Taking place at venues in Manhattan, Belmont Park and Brooklyn across a trio of dates in May as part of their 2023-24 World Tour, the events are set to draw packed crowds to watch the band perform a mix of new releases and some of their most popular tunes down the years. And while official tickets for all three shows are already sold out, there are still some available to purchase via ticket resale company Ticketmaster. Here’s all you need to know about the three big gigs coming up later this year.
First up, in mid-May the award-winning rock outfit will be rocking up at the iconic Madison Square Garden multi-purpose indoor arena in Midtown Manhattan for an evening of raucous tub-thumping tunes. The setting places you at the heart of the city, within minutes of such notable landmarks and places of interest as the Empire State Building, Koreatown, Times Square, and Macy’s at Herald Square
Venue: Madison Square Garden, Manhattan
The next night, the acclaimed band will be taking their inimitable talents to the state-of-the-art UBS Arena in Belmont Park, a historic park in Long Island. Opened in 2021, the venue is one of the newest additions to New York’s entertainment landscape and can be reached in around 30 minutes from Manhattan via the Long Island Rail Road. There are two outdoor terraces where spectators can retreat to for some fresh air during the performance.

Finally, Blink-182 conclude their three-leg New York circuit at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, home of the Brooklyn Nets NBA team. Located in the heart of the borough at the crossroads of Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues, the venue has almost 18,000 seats for basketball and up to 19,000 seats for concerts, and also has over 100 luxury suites, plus an array of bars, lounges and clubs to keep guests refreshed and entertained.
