OUR NON-DENOMINATIONAL PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED!!!! BLINK-182 IS BACK TOGETHER FOR THE KIDS, ADULTS AND EVERYBODY IN BETWEEN!!!!!
After years of will they or seriously, when the fuck will they? Cause they've been dancing around it forever, the real Blink-182 lineup (Mark Hoppus, Tom Delong and Travis Barker) that everybody loves is finally back, and they're hitting the road hard in 2023. Everybody's coming! And there's a new song out on Friday!
I hate this phrase because literally, all times are uncertain, but in these uncertain times, it's nice to get a win for everybody, as everybody loves Blink-182. Check out those openers too.
I'm so excited that I accidentally made "Anthem, Pt. 2" the SOD for a second time this year (2/2/22 and today), but all that matters is a small piece of our childhoods is returning. I don't care if that Travis is a Kardashian; THE seminal band of my formative years is back!
It's a beautiful story of brotherhood and bag chasing that everybody can get behind. These guys have been fucking through it. Travis nearly died in a plane crash, Mark beat fucking cancer, and Tom is Tom. They belong together. Skiba was never my swag (although "She's Out of Her Mind" is great). I'm so excited they're back and touring (and still making the same 14 year old dick jokes). It's a truly awesome day for music and frankly, humanity in general. Hopefully the world is still around next year to finally see them live.
Back in May, I wrote a blog about 10 bands that need to "grow up, reunite and tour again," and Blink was my #1 "grow up, reunite and tour again" band. Hopefully they're getting the ball rolling for other entries on that list.
Me in Boston next May.
