There is much hype and excitement surrounding blink-182’s current tour, as Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker reunite for the first time in nearly 10 years when the long-awaited tour stops here in Sacramento on Friday.
Whether you’re a die-hard fan or a casual listener, this tour has something in store for everyone, and reviews have been overwhelmingly positive.
“Setlist-wise, blink's comeback tour has been rock solid whether you're a casual fan or an obsessive.,” - Brooklyn Vegan
“Bouncing between their hits, ‘The Rock Show’, ‘Family Reunion’, and ‘Man Overboard’, I quickly knew this was the best I’d seen blink-182 since their 2013 anniversary shows for their Untitled album.,” - Blast
“Blink-182 went full throttle in Boston. They were smiling, laughing, and antagonizing the crowd over the Red Sox and Celtics.,” - WCYY
“DeLonge’s return has made good on a years-long wish from fans, and made it seem that no time has passed at all as the band’s innate chemistry bubbled over in the 25-song set.,” - Chicago Sun Times
Travis Barker shared some highlights from the reunion tour thus far on his Instagram.
Blink-182 was formed in 1992 in Poway, California and at their height, was one of the biggest pop-punk bands of their era. Their third studio album, Enema of the State, which featured classics like, “All the Small Things”, “Adam’s Song”, and “What’s My Age Again”, was highly regarded and often considered the catalyst to the band’s mainstream success.
