Rock 'n' roll icons Social Distortion will headline the Saturday night show at the Surf Ranch Pro presented by Hurley, following blink-182's tour cancellation due to Travis Barker's ongoing medical issues.
Forged in Southern California in 1979, Social Distortion has spent four decades trademarking their sound, a brand of hard rockabilly/punk that's cut with melodic, road-tested lyrics from frontman Mike Ness. Their searing guitars and a locomotive rhythm section sound as exciting today as they did in '82.
blink-182, who were announced as headliners for the show on August 15, have just cancelled a 11-date tour due to drummer Travis Barker's ongoing health issues.
The world's best surfers will commence competition at the Surf Ranch Pro pres. By Hurley this morning at the world-famous, man-made wave facility in Central California.
WSL will honor refund requests for those fans who wish to cancel their ticket orders in light of this announcement. If you have purchased a Surf Ranch Pro ticket that included the blink-182 performance (VIP, Full-Event General Admission, or Saturday General Admission) and would like to request a refund, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name and email address the tickets were purchased under. Please submit your refund request by 8am PST Saturday and allow 72 hours for your request to be processed.
