On the surface, it doesn't make much sense. A Blink-182/Lil Wayne co-headlining tour? A pop-punk trio and a hip-hop legend on the same stage on the same night? In 2019? What?

But the more you think about it, the more it makes sense. Lil Wayne has worked and toured with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. They both love skateboarding -- Lil Wayne, so much so, that he's a semi-regular presence at the Skatepark of Tampa.

So, you know, why not? Why SHOULDN'T Blink-182 and Lil Wayne announce summer tour dates together?

The rapper and pop-punks will perform together at Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on July 26, with Neck Deep opening. Tickets start at $37.50 and go on sale at noon Friday. Click here for details.

Whether this means we'll actually get to hear a live mash-up of A Milli and What's My Age Again remains to be seen, but now that we know this tour exists at all, nothing can be ruled out. Maybe it's time for Jay-Z and Linkin Park to think about a Collision Course nostalgia tour.
