Blink-182 have announced they will be playing two charity shows this September: one on the 10th in Sayreville, NJ at Starland Ballroom and a second on the 11th in Brooklyn, NY at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

The Starland Ballroom announced in June that they will reopen in September after a nearly two-year closure due to damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. Blink-182 will donate a portion of each ticket sold to their show here to Sandy relief through Middlesex County Long Term Recovery Group as well as for research and treatment of cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.

All ticket fees at the Music Hall of Williamsburg show will benefit burn treatment centers as well as research and treatment of cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases like the previous date.

New Beat Fund will be opening both of these Blink-182 charity shows. All of the proceeds from the sale of NBF's t-shirts will go to the respective charities at each date, and anyone who purchases one will receive a free copy of their ($) Coinz EP.

Tickets for both dates will be available Friday, August 16 at noon ET.
