“Rock has always done extremely well in our market. Although we made the change from Classic Rock a few years ago, we always wanted to stay true to our roots with a rock element. This year, we are proud to have one of the most iconic punk rock bands of their era, Blink 182. And who better to support them than Simple Plan? This is going to be a special night for us, London, and all our attendees. The remainder of our dates will be announced very soon, stay tuned London!”
