Blink-182 set to headline Reading and Leeds

Blink-182 are set to headline next year's Reading and Leeds festivals.

The 'All The Small Things' rockers have reportedly left a gap in their touring schedule to accommodate the gigs, which take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend, and will receive a cool £1 million for the shows.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “Blink-182 is a huge get for Reading and Leeds, given the band’s recent surge in popularity.

"They are planning to do a two-hour set and it will really put the festival on the map, with fans set to travel from all over the globe.”

If the group do sign up for the festivals, it is possible their performance could be caught on film because Tom DeLonge recently revealed they are regularly approached to make a Taylor Swift-style concert movie and he and bandmates Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker are considering doing it for their upcoming tour.

Tom told Cinema Blend: "It always comes across the desk every few months. Some version.

"We’ve talked about doing something on this next tour that we just launched, like, today.”

While they're up for it, the musician - who returned to the fold earlier this year as the band's famous lineup got back together - joked fans might be tempted to the cinema for "d*** jokes" rather than the songs themselves.

He said: "We’ve definitely talked about versions. You know, Taylor is a phenomenon. She can demand ticket sales.

"You and I both know how hard it is to get people to want to go to a movie theater.

"I don’t know if people would come to see Blink in a movie theater for the music, but they might come for the d*** jokes. So maybe we focus on that?”

Taylor's concert film hit cinemas last month and became the highest grossing concert film or documentary ever, with its opening weekend pulling in $123.5 million around the world.
