Blink 182 with My Chemical Romance
Thursday, August 11th
What’s their age again? Oh yeah, 39, 35, and 35. These are the respective ages of Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker. The legendary, West Coast pop-punks certainly aren’t teenagers anymore, but that doesn’t stop them from stepping onto the stage and reminiscing over their crude high school days all over again. The trio reunited in 2009 after a four-year hiatus, which spawned new projects from each member like Barker and Hoppus’ +44, and DeLonge’s Angels & Airwaves. In July the band released the very un-Blink-182 like single “Up All Night” from their forthcoming album Neighborhoods, their first album in eight years, which is to be released in September. Catch them at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center this Thursday (Aug 11) for their Honda Civic Tour, while they’re still playing classic tunes like “Adam’s Song” and “Dammit.” Joining them on stage will be gothic, glam rock quartet My Chemical Romance and indie rockers Manchester Orchestra. —cory perla
