Blink-182 Reunite With Tom DeLonge for Massive World Tour and New Music

Mark Hoppus lied. Back in August, after Tom DeLonge shared a photograph of his former Blink-182 bandmates, tagging both Hoppus and Travis Barker , the bassist and singer took to social media to insist that the band wasn’t reuniting, much to the dismay of their fans. But the band announced today that not only is Blink-182 back with a massive world tour , but DeLonge will also return to the lineup for the first time in nearly a decade. And to top it off, they are releasing a new single, “Edging,” out Friday.

The band made the announcement in true Blink-182 fashion — with a raunchy, suggestive social media post that could give someone a very wrong impression if it were to be played too loud in public. “We’re coming. Tour’s coming. Album’s coming. Tom’s coming,” they wrote alongside a minute-long announcement visual.

The tour begins March 11 in Latin America with support from Wallows and spans through April 2. In May, the North American leg supported by Turnstile will begin in Minnesota. The band will make stops in Chicago, Montreal, Brooklyn, Hershey, San Diego, Austin, Atlanta, and more before wrapping in Nashville on July 16. The Story So Far will accompany Blink-182 on the European leg beginning Sept. 6 and concluding on Oct. 15. In February 2024, the band will head to Australia and New Zealand with Rise Against.

General sale begins Monday, Oct. 17 at 10 a.m. local time via the official Blink-182 website . Blink-182 will also headline Lollapalooza 2023 alongside Billie Eilish and Drake in addition to the 2023 edition of We Were Young Festival alongside Green Day and more.

Every awful thing trump has promised to do in a second term, the 250 greatest guitarists of all time, the 500 greatest albums of all time, the 50 worst decisions in movie history.

In 2019, DeLonge told Rolling Stone that there is still “a lot of love and respect” between him and former bandmates, adding, “I think there will be a time, absolutely, that we play together.”

Blink-182 is an American pop punk rock band from San Diego, California in 1992. The group has consisted of Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker and Scott Raynor. The group has sold over 35 million albums worldwide.

Blink-182 came to prominence in the early 90s punk scene in California where their energetic shows made them a hit with crowds. The group was signed to independent label Cargo Records where they released their debut album “Cheshire Cat”. While the album was not commercially successful, it picked up a lot of buzz and is considered an iconic pop punk album of the time.

The buzz generated by this first album caused a bidding war between multiple mainstream labels and the band eventually signed with MCA. Drummer Scott Raynor’s disagreement with this decision contributed to his drifting from the band and he was eventually fired in 1998 and replaced by Travis Barker.

With the new record label and new line up settled, Blink-182 released “Enema of the State” in 1999 and quickly rose to fame with singles “Adam’s Song”, “All the Small Things” and “What’s My Age Again?” all receiving regular airtime on MTV. The album was the band’s most successful release to date and went to number 9 on the US Billboard chart.

The stress of constant touring and promotion as well as differences about where the band should go with their next album boiled to a head and caused the band to go on an indefinite hiatus in 2005. After Travis Barker was involved in a serious plane crash, the group reunited in 2008 and went on to start work on their sixth studio album, “Neighborhoods”, which was released in 2011 and charted at number 2 in the US.

Blink-182 has cited The Ramones, The Cure and The Vandals, amongst others, as influences for their music, but the reality is that Blink-182 are massive influencers and inspirations for musicians all around the world. The band inspired the second wave of pop punk music in the new millennium and also single-handedly bought this music into the mainstream. For this reason, their music will certainly live on for generations.

Live reviews

Well let me start off by saying that this was my first rock concert that I have ever been too. It was amazing, the sound was amazing and they were amazing. I've always liked Blink-182 because they were kind of more on the "nice" side of rock. Not like heavy metal. When they performed in Phoenix, the opening acts were A Day To Remember and All Time low. I am not sure if that is the same for everyone. If you don't like heavy metal than I would suggest skipping the All Time Low act. Also, don't be in a rush to go to there concert because I got there at 6:00, the doors opened at 7:30. They started playing around 9:30. So its okay if you were a little late.

Sexual jokes;

They do make jokes about sex... A lot of jokes about sex and some of them are worse than others. But the only people who made jokes were the opening acts.

There is DEFINITELY a lot of cursing. But what do you expect? It's a Blink-182 concert.

When I went there we sat pretty close to the stage. The pit is a little crazy but nothing to bad. There will be a lot of drugs, smoking, and alcohol there. I sat behind a guy that was totally drunk and there are people smoking EVERYWHERE.

If your child is 9 or younger, Please leave them home, it's just not safe. And if it means that you can't go to the concert, than just stay home. It's better to be safe than sorry.

If your child is 10-14, I think they should go with a parent/guardian.

If your child is 15-16 I would say, make sure they have some adult supervision available to them if they ever got in an emergency.

If your child is 17+, I think they will be fine depending on how mature they are.

It's not worth it. You go to a five minuet sound check and for the meet and greet, you don't even do anything. It's just not worth spending your money.

Even though the VIP is a rip off, I would still, highly suggest you go to there concert, it was phenomenal.

WAIT FOR IT !!!........... LIL WAYNE cancelled just hours before the show (rolling my eyes) so needless to say happy we showed up at 9pm because instead of lil wayne the fans were entertained by music mashups of rock and rap (crappy mix ups by the way) and music by the backstreet boys or n sync not sure which boy band it was but i was super annoyed when i heard the near sold out crowd singing along of "i want it that way" really crappy song but all these idiots were singing along like it was 6th grade but on to the positive blink 182 put on a great set for a whole 60 minutes yep 1 hour started at 9:30 was done by 10:30 great set pyro,smoke,cool video stage set up NO TOM DELONGE some new guy not his fault he played great but it wasnt teb same he didnt really sound like TOM so it was like blink 182 karaoke for some of the songs and the short set time I mean shit lil wayne doesnt show these guys could have saved the day and played longer but in typical rock star fashion they charged full price for tickets delivered half of a show and a short set disapointed much ? YEAH I WAS hate to say it but I mean it wasnt a 20 dollar ticket here tickets were not cheap but the amount of entertainment vs the amount paid for the ticket was not EQUAL felt pretty ripped off as a whole save your money this go round NOT WORTH THE CASH plus we drove 4 hours to go to this show so a few hundred dollars later we got and hour of a headliner entertainment hell KISS are 70 years old and played for 2 and a half hours the tickets were pricey but hell they were showmen and lots of fire,pyro,smoke,fireworks,ect stunts elevating risers ect so you tell me if its worth it to go see 40 year old entitled punks vs 70 year old vets who are doing a cash grab no doubt but are still delivering an experirience

Blink 182 has been my favorite band as a kid back in ‘96 when I first heard of them and will always be. I finally got to see them live for the first tine ever in 2016, 20 years later because they came close to my hometown in Greenville, SC. Then about 3 months later to my actual hometown in Charleston, SC. I was close to the middle up front and had the time of my life. I thank the whole band for making one person’s dream come true just to see you live. I’ve always wanted to meet Mark and Travis!! I was so like it’s cool when Mark tried to throw me a pick but it landed short and he apologized and he Ent on with the show. But my heart filled up with joy when, in my opinion, the greatest drummer in the whole universe, Travis Barker!!!!, acknowledged me when I gave him a thumbs up. Wish I could meet and talk to then!! A dream for a lifetime. Blink 182 you will always be number 1 to me and hold a special place in my heart as you do to millions of fans!! Love you all and can’t wait for the bext album!! Including Mark’s new band aka The Side Piece. Mark if you ever read this’ please don’t take offense to the comment. Blink 4 Life!! Peace...

Think early 2000s fashion, baggy jeans, chains, and terrible hair, ‘say it ain’t so, I will not go, turn the lights off, carry me home’. This song takes me right back to my young teenage self, jumping round my bedroom with a hairbrush as a microphone. Back in 2012 when I got asked if I would like to go and see Blink-182 live, I thought, sure!

Although my enthusiasm for them had somewhat dwindled over the last decade, it’s always fun to have a bit of a throwback and that’s exactly what I was hoping for when I went to their London O2 Arena concert. Even from the upper tier of the arena, the sound quality was amazing and as they game out on stage they began playing ‘Feeling This’ over the tumultuous sound of a cheering arena crowd.

The atmosphere was fuelled by the incredible set of the album cover and laser lights dancing across the stage and out towards the audience. As the show progressed, they began singing more and more classic, culminating in ‘All the Small Things’, which is what everyone was desperate to hear.

They really did put on a fantastic show, great vocals, performance, and energy, I’m so glad I went.

There's not much to say about a Blink-182 live show apart from the fact it must be seen to be believed. Having been pioneers of the pop/punk revival of the 90's, Blink have a huge string of cult hits and a fan base of all ages who continue to fill out their shows with no sign of slowing down.

The cheers are raised as the band confidently take to stage, running around, laughing, joking from the offset as if they were about to start a garage jam session rather than entertain thousands. This air of carelessness carries on as Blink are not a band who take themselves seriously during performance, during mass singalongs to 'What's My Age Again' they are often jovially moving around stage and baiting the crowds below.

The act does get a little relentless as it can feel as if the band hasn't really grown up since its formation. Although there are moments of sincerity in the form of 'I Miss You' and a well performed cover of 'Hybrid Moments' by Misfits. 'All The Small Things' obviously receives the best reaction, and the performance of this cult anthem is incredibly fun.

Took my 2 songs (20 & 16). Wanted to see both Frank Turner - who I've seen loads - and Blink

Managed to get access to O2 Priority & use their cloakrooms & loos before going into the Arena.

Frank T & The Sleeping Souls as always nailed it. How often do you see a support act crowdsurf

Then onto Blink. Stsrted with a bang literally. Flag dropped to reveal a firey F U C K behind the band.

From then they took us through a mixture of new songs for California (Bored to Death, Kings of the Weekend, Los Angeles + others) & old classics (Feeling This, I Miss You, Reckless Abandon, All the Small Things, Dumpweed & Dammit to name a few). Check out the setlist at setlist.com

Throughout the set we have flames, smoke burst, amazing graphics, firework waterfall and of course an end of set confetti canon

Travis' drumming was amazing & night finishing with his son performing a drum solo

A great night was had by all

Show exceeded expectations and was THRILLED we didn't have to listen to Lil Wayne - bonus. Thanks to St. Louis for helping to move him on his way to the next venue. Loved hearing Enema of the State in its entirety. Wish they had included Always but the other added songs were great as well. I thought Matt sounded great and thoroughly enjoyed a couple of the songs from California and NINE. Sad no encore but had a total blast singing along and dancing. Super charged stage show and Travis' drum solo was amazing but never long enough for me! (I'm sure plenty long for him - what a work out!) Neck Deep also put on a great performance. They are a GREAT opening act for Bink. Thanks for the show - and long lasting memories.

Best day of my whole entire life. These guys can rock the hell out of you. Amazing performance, amazing song list, amazing audience and atmosphere. When you see what Travis Barker does on the drums you are standing there with your jaw dropped and cannot believe it. I was a bit aftaid that the sound was going to be exactly like on the videos with Tom singing but no! This guy sings great and Mark too. Not a single problem with the sound. I loved in particular Rock Show, Always, Small Things, First Date and Down. Every time these guys are in town - just go there without thinking. We're atually very close to going to Leipzig tonight to see them one more time right away :)

Matt Skiba was filling in for Tom but the band didn't miss a beat all. The show at their old stomping grounds, SOMA in San Diego, was an unforgettable performance. The crowd was filled with a few too many teenagers who were more concerned with snapchatting the band than listening to them, but the band's performance made the show amazing regardless. Mark has enough funny/not-funny one liners to add some humor to the show, but overall it's just an awesome band cranking out the hits, as well as some throwbacks and deeper cuts. I've been a fan of them for 15 years and the show still exceeded all my expectations. I'd relive that show over and over.

The concert was sick! Everyone in the crowd (young, old, boy, girl, hardcore punk rock, or less so) was hype and having a great time! The energy onstage was contagious, you could feel it all through the venue! The lights and pyrotechnics were perfectly timed and kept the liveliness up all night. Blink 182 played an outstanding mix of thier old and new songs. It was crazy, I felt like I was frozen in time. The songs I used to listen to as a kid still make me feel alive. Blink 182 is timeless and they seem to only get better with age. I'm really happy I didn't miss this concert, this was truly one for the books!

Blink-182 is getting back in the touring (and Tom DeLonge) game after nearly 10 years

Almost a decade after their last reunion, blink-182 has announced founding member tom delonge will join back up with the band for a 2023 tour.

Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker, and Mark Hoppus of Blink-182

It appears work doesn’t actually suck all that bad for Blink-182. After a nearly ten-year hiatus, the band has announced founding member Tom DeLonge is returning to the fold ahead for a 2023 world tour and brand new single, “Edging,” due out this Friday. The band is also set to release a new album next year, per multiple outlets .

Related Content

Alongside Mark Hoppus, DeLonge founded Blink-182 in 1992. In 1998, Travis Barker joined the trio after former drummer Scott Raynor was dismissed. Barker’s first album with Blink-182 was 1999s Enema of The State , which went multi-platinum and boasts some of the band’s greatest hits, like “All The Small Things.”

DeLonge departed the group back in 2015 after some scattered touring and the 2011 release of their album Neighborhoods . The group had initially gone on indefinite hiatus in 2005, but a 2008 plane crash that almost killed Barker (and took the lives of multiple friends) ushered in a 2009 Blink-182 reunion tour. (Luckily, this time around, no horrifying tragedies appear to have befallen the group members in the name of getting the band back together).

Blink-182 broke the big news with a salaciously punny promo. Styled like a medical or political commercial, a variety of different diverse caricatures— a happy couple gardening! A man playing baseball! A beautiful woman sunning by a pool! — express their excitement that Blink-182 is “coming.”

“We would do anything to make them come,” the gardening woman asserts as her husband thoughtfully agrees. “That’s right honey. Anything.” Whatever this duo may have done to get DeLonge back on stage, wherever they are, they’re deserving of some diplomatic gratitude (read: no questions asked.)

In  a four-star review of the first of their two London shows ,  NME  praised the band for their ability to blend their signature pop-punk attitudes with more heartfelt moments.

“Between songs, Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge are an inimitable comic duo, trading jibes over their on-stage mistakes and building collective punchlines with well-oiled timing,” it read.

“But in contrast, their serious moments are profound. ‘Stay Together For The Kids’ serves as a magnificent reminder of Blink’s ability to cut deeper than standard she-broke-my-heart emo fare; ‘Adam’s Song’ becomes especially raw as Hoppus relates it to the decline in his mental health during his cancer treatment.”

Additionally, their new album received similar praise from  NME , who  awarded it three-stars and celebrated it for its “surprisingly touching” moments.

In other news, Matt Skiba has shared one of his biggest regrets from his time in Blink-182.

Blink-182's 2023 reunion tour is a dizzying blend of dirty jokes and pop-punk anthems

blink 128 tour

Blink-182’s first tour with founding member Tom DeLonge in nine years brought the reunited pop-punk veterans back to Phoenix for a sold-out show at Footprint Center on Wednesday, June 14.

It was a breathless 25-song journey through their catalog that ended with their 1997 breakthrough, “Dammit,” bassist Mark Hoppus sending us off into the night with a singalong chorus of “Well I guess this is growing up” while all but daring you to point to any indication that they’ve done much growing up at all.

And Blink fans wouldn’t have it any other way.

They were there for “The Mark, Tom and Travis Show,” as the trio once titled a live recording released at the turn of the century that effectively immortalized the perpetual state of arrested development that had already come to constitute a large part of their stage show.

And yet there were no penis jokes involving 'All the Small Things'

After taking the stage to the piped-in strains of “Also sprach Zarathustra” (used to dramatic effect in Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” and Elvis Presley’s stage show ), they followed a breathless rendition of “Anthem Part Two” with “The Rock Show” before laying any fear that we were dealing with an older, wiser Blink-182 to rest with a spirited “Family Reunion.”

That’s the one where they run through a string of profanities inspired by George Carlin’s seven dirty words routine and sign off with a frank admission that they’d been enjoying sexual relations with “your mom.”

The thought of having sexual relations with “your mom” is a recurring theme in Blink-182 shows. If they ever make a concept album a la "Tommy," you may safely assume that Tommy is “your mom,” and she is having sex with Blink-182.

It’s right up there with running jokes about the disappointing nature of your bandmate’s genitalia. There were also masturbation jokes and imitations of the noises Elvis Presley and James Hetfield of Metallica might make toward the end of being caught in flagrante delicto.

Celebrate: Juneteenth and the other Elvis are the biggest things happening in Phoenix this weekend

DeLonge also treated fans to an origin story involving roller skates and sexual relations with his bandmates — also wearing roller skates.

It’s what Blink-182 has taught us to expect. And to their credit, that’s exactly what they gave us, interspersed with musical reminders that they’ve also carved out quite a legacy of pop-punk calling cards, from “Dammit” to their latest single, “Edging,” which spent more than 13 weeks at No. 1 on alternative radio while welcoming DeLonge back to the fold.

The biggest Blink-182 songs from 'All the Small Things' to 'I Miss You'

They also hit on staples as essential to an understanding of their place in pop-punk history as “What’s My Age Again?,” “All The Small Things,” “Adam’s Song,” “Man Overboard,” “The Rock Show,” “First Date,” “Feeling This” and “I Miss You.” And they gave their inner Goo Goo Dolls the wheel on the smartphone-waving power ballad “Stay Together for the Kids.”

There were flames shooting out of the floor on their opening song. The first confetti explosion was triggered by “Family Reunion,” three songs in. An inflatable ambulance with a cartoon portrait of the sexy nurse from the cover of “Enema of the State” took flight on “Dumpweed.”

Could Travis Barker be the Keith Moon of the pop-punk generation?

And celebrity drummer Travis Barker spent several songs suspended from the ceiling on his drum riser, flailing away at his kit with the theatrical intensity and precision he displayed throughout the night in an amazing show of force.

If there’s a drummer more deserving of the title “The Keith Moon of the pop-punk generation,” I would love to hear it, but I doubt he would’ve played a more impressive show.

What it means to have Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus back together

DeLonge left Blink-182 in 2015, at which point his bandmates recruited Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio and carried on, releasing two albums: 2016’s "California" and 2019’s "Nine."

I’ve seen that lineup. They were really good. But this is something altogether more in keeping with the spirit of what people think of when they get excited about Blink-182. It’s a little like seeing a Beatles reunion after feeling fairly certain Wings are good enough to get you through the breakup.

Swift City: Why Taylor Swift launching her Eras Tour in Phoenix was such a big deal

There’s this chemistry DeLonge and Hoppus have that’s guaranteed to take you back to where you were the day your inner juvenile delinquent and/or class clown fell in love with Blink-182.

And there’s an authenticity that comes with seeing the trio that gave the world the multiplatinum juvenilia of “Enema of the State” and the even more ridiculously titled “Take Off Your Pants and Jacket” as grown men in their 40s and 50s making penis jokes so you don’t have to.

Mark Hoppus shares the sweet side of Blink-182 reunion story

There’s even a sweet side to the story that precipitated this reunion.

Hoppus had been battling a rare form of cancer that has gone into remission since he made his peace with the man whose genitalia he assured us was extremely small.

“Not very long ago, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to keep going,” Hoppus explained toward the end of the set.

“I was going through chemotherapy and I couldn’t walk up the stairs of my house without getting out of breath. I didn’t know if I was ever gonna be on stage again. And now, here I am tonight.”

As previously noted, it was really sweet.

The end result was a life-affirming reminder of what this kind of performance can mean to those who came of age with Blink-182, a dizzying blend of penis jokes and songs that hit you squarely in the feels, which, as I’ve come to understand it, is a good deal higher on the body.

It was fun — the kind of fun that makes it hard to care that you were making not-so-subtle variations on those mother jokes in sixth or seventh grade.

Best of Moscow by high speed train

Sure would appreciate someone who has taken "Best of Moscow by high speed train" from St. Petersburg could please share their impressions of this shore excursion. From the description this sounds like a very long day.

Wondering how the 4 hour train trip was in terms of accommodations, etc. Also what time did you leave the ship and what time at night did you return? Were both legs of the trip on the high speed rail (I read that slower trains also travel the same tracks)?

My wife and I are considering this excursion. We thought that if we are making all the effort to go to Russia then how could we pass up going to Moscow, walking in Red Square, seeing St. Basil, etc.

If you are considering this on the 2015 June Baltic cruise on Voyager; my suggestion is don't. There is so much to do in St. Petersburg and although a train is one of my favorite ways to travel the time would be far better spent in St. P.

Thanks for the advice. Yes, this would be on the Voyager during the 2015 season but not yet sure exactly which cruise.

We did the Moscow excursion "on a different luxury line", but from your brief description it sounds very much like the same trip, so I will operate on that assumption. It is a VERY long day! We left the ship at 5:30 AM and returned at 12:30 AM. The highspeed train trip is comfortable, and while they call it "Business Class" it does not compare well to the equivalent class on say Rail Europe. When we did it in 2011, we did have highspeed both ways, and the trip back seemed much longer as the adrenaline and excitement had worn off!:D

Moscow itself is not that terribly different from any other big city in the world, but this Cold War kid never thought he would ever stand in Red Square, never mind walk the grounds of The Kremlin, or tour The Kremlin Palace, or see (but not visit) Lenin's Tomb, or visit The Armoury. But he did, and he loved every minute of it! Yes, it is a long day, and you barely scratch a scratch on the surface, but it is worth it. There is a tremendous amount to see in St. Petersburg, but every Baltic cruise goes to St. Petersburg, so you can go back if you choose to. Not every cruiseline offers you the chance to see Moscow.

I have not personally done this tour, but our last time in St Petersburg, the private guide that we hired for a day was leading the regent tour to Moscow on the high speed train the next day. He said it was way better than the previous alternative, which was flying to Moscow and back. He said that you actually got to Moscow faster because you didn't have to deal with airline checkin etc. it did seem like a very long day to me, and there is so much to see and do in st. Petersburg that I didn't consider doing it.

We toured to Moscow from St. Petersburg via the hi-speed SAPSAN train last September, from a Baltic cruise on the Oceania Marina. You need to have a two-night, three day port call in St. Petersburg to take this tour because the tour typically leaves the ship around 5:00 - 5:30 AM and doesn't return until after midnight the next day. We didn't take the ship's tour; we made private arrangements with TravelAllRussia for three days of touring, the first and third days in St. Petersburg and the second day the tour to Moscow by train. Our cost for the private tour for three days was about the same as what the ship charged for the excursion to Moscow alone. There are a number of private tour agencies that operate in St. Petersburg and offer the Moscow train tours; we would strongly recommend them over the ship's tours.

All three days had private guides with car and driver. The second day, the driver picked us up at the ship and took us to the train, but we were alone on the train, and met in Moscow by the guide on the station platform. After our tour and dinner, we were brought back to the train and after the return train trip met by the driver and taken back to the ship. Because you are alone on the train you must have your own Russian visas.

If this is your first visit to St. Petersburg, I would agree there is much more to see there. We found Moscow somewhat a disappointment, particularly Red Square. The Kremlin and the cathedral in Red Square were also worth seeing. But the best thing we saw was the Moscow subway! I worked for the Washington Metro system back in the 1980s as it grew from 40 to 80 miles and although I was in the computer area, I learned a lot about the challenges of running a subway system. We used the Moscow system to get across the city from where we had dinner to the train station, and I was amazed at the cleanliness', speed of operation, the short headways maintained, and the courtesy of everyone involved. A very impressive experience!

We had been to St. Petersburg before, and so had the time to take a day and go to Moscow. Also, I really like trains, and the SAPSAN is a German train set running on Russian rails. Seats are like first class domestic air, spacious but not too plush or comfortable, but with enough room. Not too much recline, and almost 8 hours on the train in two shots is a lot for an old man. They come through and sell drinks, candy, etc. but the sellers don't speak English and no one around us helped, so we had just poor coffee once coming, and brought stuff with us for the trip back. Not too much to see from the train either, particularly on the return when it is night the whole way.

If you decide to go, take a private tour and avoid the overly expensive ship's tour. I'm glad we did it, but wouldn't bother to repeat the tour; we've seen Moscow.

Thanks so much to all of you for the thorough and thought insight. Yhe information you have provided is most helpful.

countflorida: Your detailed post is very helpful. We are not quite ready for a Baltic cruise but should do so within a year. Time enough to do our pre travel research, bookings and visa gathering.:) Thank you!

Sure would appreciate someone who has taken "Best of Moscow by high speed train" from St. Petersburg could please share their impressions of this shore excursion. From the description this sounds like a very long day.   Wondering how the 4 hour train trip was in terms of accommodations, etc. Also what time did you leave the ship and what time at night did you return? Were both legs of the trip on the high speed rail (I read that slower trains also travel the same tracks)?   My wife and I are considering this excursion. We thought that if we are making all the effort to go to Russia then how could we pass up going to Moscow, walking in Red Square, seeing St. Basil, etc.

I did this on Seabourn. IMO DONT. Take Aeroflop (er Aeroflot). The train has non folding seats where you are literally knee to knee with your fellow passenger (facing each other). Further they don't believe in air conditioning. It's also the worlds slowed bullet train. I think I would have found more enjoyment wandering around the St. Petersburg and Moscow airports.

Countflorida,

This is a little off topic,, however we had planned a river cruise in Russia but decided we would rather stay on land and have booked about two weeks with Travel-All-Russia using the private guide and driver. I'm curious as to how you found them as a tour company.

The guides they provided were fine. We had a different guide each of the days in St. Petersburg, but both were flexible, pleasant, knowledgeable and spoke English very well, as did the guide in Moscow, incidentally. She was a bit aloof, distant, not too friendly, but otherwise fine. In fact, she was the one who suggested taking the Metro, which unexpectedly became one of the highlights of the Moscow excursion. If I have a complaint with AllTravelRussia, it is with their plan and its execution (more later).

I had requested emphasis on World War II (in Russia, the Great Patriotic War) sites and info. In scheduling us, they weren't careful about dates and a couple of the sites we wanted to see were scheduled on the third day, after we'd been to Moscow. But both sites were closed that day of the week, and that info was readily available, right on web sites describing them. Also, the included meals (lunches in St. Pete, dinner in Moscow) were not what we asked for: light meals with some choices, so we could avoid things we didn't like and choose things we did like. My request was ignored; we were given full Russian meals with a fixed menu, no choice. On the first day, a fish dish was the entre, but I am allergic to fish. Fortunately, I had the e-mail I'd sent with me and showed it to the guide, and she was able to change my entre to chicken, which was very good actually. But we didn't want a 3-4 course lunches or dinner (in Moscow). We had the guide drop the lunch the third day, although we never got any credit or refund. But, particularly in contrast to the ship's tours, the prices were so reasonable we didn't worry too much about it.

The people who were on the ship's tour to Moscow saw us boarding the same train for which they were forced to queue up and wait on the way back, and asked us what we had done. I was candid and open so they were not happy when I explained what we had arranged and particularly what it had cost. Also, when we returned to the ship, we found they had laid on a late supper for those who had gone to Moscow, so up we went and had something. Well, it turns out the late supper was supposed to be just for those on the ship's tour, but we and others on 'independent' tours, there were a dozen or more of us, crashed the party, actually got there first, and they didn't realize it until the larger group arrived and there weren't enough tables/places set. By that time, the 'independents' had all gotten served and were eating; what could they do?

A couple from the larger group sat down with us and asked us about our tour, and they were the ones I told about our arrangement and its cost. They turned to others who’d been with them and announced the details, loudly enough so the whole room heard, which started a lot of bitching and complaining. I gathered they weren't very happy with the ship's tour to begin with, and this was the straw that broke the camel's back. We finished up and beat it out of there, but overheard later that one of the excursion staff came to check on something and ran into a real mess. I caught a cold on the trip, which forced me to bed the second day following in Tallinn, so by the time we reappeared we heard about the contretemps' but apparently no one recalled who started it, thankfully.

Because of what happened to us, I would probably not use AllTravelRussia if I were to go again, or if I did, I would be sure to get confirmation of every detail of the tour. They do have good reviews generally, and we were certainly helped by their visa department and liked the guides and drivers. Their weakness, I say now with full 20:20 hindsight, is that once the sales person who plans the tour, sells it to you and collects your money, he (or she) transfers the plan to their Russia office for implementation; there is no follow-up to make sure it gets done right. And that is where our problems arose; we paid for a custom tour but got a standard package with a few destinations switched, and no one checked them out, even to see when they were open the day we were scheduled to go. If you check every detail that’s important to you, it should be OK, but that’s a hell of a way to have to do business, in my opinion.

Thank you for the 20/20 hindsight observation on your Russian tour operator, and better priced than the ship's excursion cost.

Thanks very much for the feedback.

We had the same experience as you so far as price. We originally booked a Viking Cruise but, hearing some things about the river cruises that made us unhappy, looked into other options. T-A-R cost the same or less than a cruise and had us in hotels for 11 days. We opted for the private tour. They have three tour levels, based on hotels. We originally opted for the four star as it did not cost much more than the three star hotels. Finally we decided to throw it all in and upgraded to five star. In Moscow we will be at the newly opened Kempinsky which is two blocks from Red Square. In St. Petersburg it is the Grand Hotel Europe, one of the most vaunted luxury hotels in Russia. Location is important for us as the tours use up only part of the day so being in the center of everything for our independent touring is important. As with many other cities, the less you pay, the farther out of the center of town you are.

We have been working with our salesman in D.C. and he seems to get back to us with the changes we want. He recently returned from Russia so is up on everything. When I asked they said they paid the full TA commission if I wanted so I got my usual TA on board so he is watching our back and giving us that extra level of comfort. He also set up our air, which I know pays him little or nothing, and got us business class for much less than T-A-R wanted for economy, though it took working for a while with a consolidator. He's happy to get his 10 percent on this trip without having booked it. He also took care of the trip insurance. We've been doing a lot of research on the CC sister site Trip Advisor and will write a report there. We will, I guess, become a source of info for CC members after having spent 5 days in Moscow and 6 in SP.

Theatres in Moscow

Cultural life of Moscow city is various and rich! Operas, ballets, symphonic concerts... Russian composers have created some of the most beautiful classical music. Russian classical music is very popular in Moscow. It is performed in many beautiful historical venues. Do not forget to include a visit to a concert hall in your itinerary when you are planning your stay in Moscow! And do it in advance.

There are almost no restrictions on dress code in Russian theatres. Visitors may wear jeans and sports shoes, they may have a backpack with them. Only shorts are not allowed.

A typical feature of Russian theatre – visitors are bringing a lot of flowers which they present to their favorite performers after the show.

Here are some practical advices where to go and how to buy tickets.

The Bolshoi Theatre

The Bolshoi Theatre is the oldest, the most famous and popular opera and ballet theatre in Russia. The word “Bolshoi” means “big” in Russian. You can buy a ticket online in advance, 2-3 months before the date of performance on the official website . Prices for famous ballets are high: 6-8 thousand rubles for a seat in stalls. Tickets to operas are cheaper: you can get a good seat for 4-5 thousand rubles. Tickets are cheaper for daytime performances and performances on the New Stage. The New Stage is situated in the light-green building to the left of the Bolshoi's main building. The quality of operas and ballets shown on the New Stage is excellent too. However, you should pay attention that many seats of the Bolshoi’s Old and New Stages have limited visibility . If you want to see the Bolshoi’s Old Stage but all tickets are sold out, you can order a tour of the theatre. You can book such a tour on the official website.

If you want, following Russian tradition, to give flowers to the performers at the end of the show, in the Bolshoi flowers should be presented via special staff who collects these flowers in advance.

In August the Bolshoi is closed.

The Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre

This theatre is noteworthy. On one hand, it offers brilliant classical opera and ballet performances. On the other hand, it is an experimental venue for modern artists. You can check the program and buy tickets online here http://stanmus.com/ . If you are opera lover, get a ticket to see superstar Hibla Gerzmava . The theatre has a very beautiful historic building and a stage with a good view from every seat. Tickets are twice cheaper than in the Bolshoi.

The Novaya Opera

“Novaya” means “New” in Russian. This opera house was founded in 1991 by a famous conductor Eugene Kolobov. Its repertoire has several directions: Russian and Western classics, original shows and divertissements, and operas of the 20th and 21st centuries. It is very popular with Muscovites for excellent quality of performances, a comfortable hall, a beautiful Art Nouveau building and a historic park Hermitage, which is situated right next to it. You can buy tickets online here http://www.novayaopera.ru/en .

Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Center

The Opera Center has become one of the best theatrical venues in Moscow. It was founded in 2002 by great diva Galina Vishnevskaya. Nowadays its artistic director is Olga Rostropovich, daughter of Galina Vishnevskaya and her husband Mstislav Rostropovich, great cellist and conductor. Not only best young opera singers perform here, but also world music stars do; chamber and symphonic concerts, theatrical productions and musical festivals take place here. You can see what is on the program here http://opera-centre.ru/theatre . Unfortunately “booking tickets online” is available in Russian only. If you need help, you can contact us at and we can book a ticket for you. 

Tchaikovsky Concert Hall and The Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory

These are two major concert halls for symphonic music in Moscow. Both feature excellent acoustics, impressive interior, various repertoire and best performers. You can check the program here http://meloman.ru/calendar/ . You need just to switch to English. Booking tickets online is available only for owners of Russian, Ukrainian and Belorussian phone numbers. If you need help, you can contact us and we can book a ticket for you. 

Moscow International Performing Arts Center (MIPAC)

This modern and elegant concert hall houses performances of national and foreign symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles, solo instrumentalists, opera singers, ballet dancers, theatre companies, jazz bands, variety and traditional ensembles. Actually, it has three concert halls placed on three different levels and having separate entrances. The President of MIPAC is People’s Artist of the USSR Vladimir Spivakov, conductor of “Virtuosy Moskvy” orchestra. You can see pictures of the concert halls here http://www.mmdm.ru/en/content/halls . The program is impressive in its variety but is not translated into English. You can contact us at and we can find a performance for you.
