The 10th Annual Honda Civic Tour was a concert tour co-headlined by American pop punk trio Blink-182 and American rock band My Chemical Romance (in what turned out to be their final tour). Joined by supporting acts Matt & Kim, Manchester Orchestra, and Rancid, the tour began from August 5, 2011 and ran until October 8.

Sponsored by the Honda Motor Company, the 2011 tour will mark the 10th anniversary of the concert tour, which Blink-182 headlined in its first incarnation.

Background

The tour was announced on May 23, 2011. Both bands had gathered at the Rainbow Bar and Grill in West Hollywood to announce to the tour. Members of the official blink-182 and My Chemical Romance fan clubs will have first chances at tickets to all shows, in an exclusive pre-sale that will begin on June 6. On June 8, anyone who "likes" the Honda Civic Tour's Facebook page will gain access to tickets. All remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public on June 10 via Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com. The announcement of the tour angered European blink-182 fans, whose previously announced European tour was cancelled just one month before.

As is tradition with the concert tour, blink-182 was chosen to customize a Honda Civic to commemorate their long collaboration with the tour. Singer-bassist Mark Hoppus, whose first car was a Honda Civic, stated Max Gramajo, who had previously been involved in album artwork and T-shirt designs, co-designed the vehicle. The car features Koenig rims, Toyo tires, a matte-finish paint job and the blink-182 signature logo, the bunny rabbit (blink-182's mascot) and will be handed away during the tour to a fan.
