Blink-182 performed their first live show in front of audience last night with Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba filling in for Tom DeLonge. Watch the video.
When All Time Low’s Jack Barakat and Rian Dawson each got tattoos of the Blink-182 bunny back in 2008, they had no idea that one day they’d be sitting in Mark Hoppus’ home studio writing a song together.
In a statement released this morning from the band’s publicist, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker explain the show must go on.
“We can take the next step and really get back to risk-taking,” Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge told Radio.com.
“It was very forward for us, it was such an adventurous recording. That really felt good because we’d turned the corner from a pop-punk band to conceptual and progressive, um, punk band.”
Travis Barker of Blink-182 talk about their intimate Palladium shows, making a new album, when his kids are allowed to get their first tattoo, and what it will be like playing their 2003 self-titled album from back to front in several upcoming shows.
Originally scheduled as a day off, Blink-182’s Tom Delonge Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker opted to add a Brooklyn show tonight as a 9/11 tribute and a means to generate money and awareness for two hospitals.
