Blink-182 played their first gig of the post-Tom DeLonge era at the Roxy in West Hollywood on Wednesday night. In DeLonge’s place was Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba, who is also slated to perform with Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker at the Musink Music and Tattoo Festival in Costa Mesa this weekend.

The band’s setlist spanned 24 tracks, including the first performance of “Wendy Clear” in over a decade, and a cover of Misfits’ “Skulls”. Below, watch fan-shot footage from the concert and see the full setlist.

Prior to last night’s performance, Skiba appeared on Hoppus’ podcast to discuss his participation in these Blink-182 shows. Skiba is set to embark on a tour with Alkaline Trio later this year, so his future with Blink-182 remains a bit unclear.

Meanwhile, DeLonge recently announced he has three more solo albums in the pipeline following next month’s release of To the Stars … Demos, Odds and Ends.
