Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker played their first show together in nearly a decade at Coachella.
The Friday night performance at the Sahara Tent was announced just days prior to the festival’s kick-off. DeLonge, Hoppus, and Barker sounded in fine form as they ripped through an 18-song comprised primarily of greatest hits like “Anthem Part Two,” “The Rock Show,” “What’s My Age Again?” and “All the Small Things.” The setlist also included the live debut of their new song “Edging” as well as the first performance of “Aliens Exist” with DeLonge since 2001.
In between songs, DeLonge and Hoppus delivered their trademark banter, delivering crass commentary about the Dalai Lama and DeLonge’s mother’s vagina.
Blink-182 were originally set to kick off their reunion tour last month in South America, but were forced to postpone those dates after Travis Barker injured his finger. The North American leg of Blink-182’s reunion tour kicks begins in May and runs through July, with Turnstile providing support. You can find tickets to all of their upcoming shows here.
I love this Blink-182-ish opening. Mark was nodding with deep emotion and looking at the audience, Travis was steadily preparing his drum set, and Tom was wiggling weirdly😂 What a perfect trio!😆😍 pic.twitter.com/kzGBnRCWZp
