Originally, Columbus was slated as the kickoff location for blink’s 20-year Enema Of The State anniversary tour, but production delays forced the band to reschedule.
The stop was moved to the very end of the tour, adding All Time Low to the lineup to make the wait worth it.

There has been little-to-no explanation as to why the show was canceled despite All Time Low frontman Alex Gaskarth tweeting an apology to fans that the cancelation was “completely beyond our control”.
Refunds are available at point of purchase. Again, really sorry this one fell through.
