blink-182 Join Foo Fighters and Arctic Monkeys
With 25 million worldwide album sales under their belt, pop punk trio blink-182 formed in California in 1992 and released five studio albums including multi-platinum selling breakthrough album Enema of the State before breaking away from the music scene in 2004.
The 51st Grammy Awards in 2009 brought the band back together and and their awesome sold-out performance at Dublin’s O2 in August showed them to be at the height of their powers. With a new album planned for release in spring 2011, blink-182’s OXEGEN performance will be eagerly anticipated by their Irish fans.
US superstars Foo Fighters will debut tracks from their forthcoming new album at OXEGEN. Fronted by Dave Grohl, the multi-platinum selling US superstars are one of the biggest bands on the planet.
Arctic Monkeys’ first album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not became the fastest-selling debut album in UK music history and the soundtrack for a generation. They’ve since released two more No.1 albums and won a host of awards including an incredible five Brit Awards.
