Blink 182 Boston Show Preview

Well people, the time has come. After five long and arduous years since they last played an east coast show, Blink-182 will take the stage Thursday at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA for a spectacle that none of us will soon forget.

It's just about two weeks into the tour and Blink have been taking North America by storm. With a brief west coast run and Canada behind them, the boys are all warmed up for our Boston show. And from all the buzz across the web, it looks like we'll be in for a two hour set.

So what can we expect? Well, from what I've read it seems that we will see Travis Barker and his drum set flying through the air above our heads, a shower of confetti during the encore and enough potty jokes to write a book with.

But that's not all. Blink are also planning on playing some songs too, and boy does the set list look amazing. Sure, we're going to get all the hits like What's My Age Again?, First Date and Adam's Song, but they've also been making sure to play some of their hidden gems such as Stockholm Syndrome and Not Now. What more can we really ask for?

It gets better though. Lucky for us, we also get to see Fall Out Boy, Panic At The Disco and Chester French filling the opening spots. It's kind of funny to think about it because just a few years ago Hoppus' side project, +44, was opening for Panic and Fall Out Boy on the Honda Civic Tour. Guess the guys really got along well.

It's looking like a good night people. Personally I'm stoked, as I'm sure most of you are (if you were able to get tickets to this sold-out event). Let's just hope this lives up to all the hype, and of course, past Blink shows.

Oh, and if you weren't lucky enough to score seats in the pavilion, don't worry. The forecast looks great for Thursday; high 70s and clear at night. Of course that means nothing to me, I'll be nice and cozy down front. See ya there, suckas!


  1. panic did not play on that honda civic tour with +44 and fob


    Watch that and tell me what tour that's from. Mark Hoppus, Panic, and Pete Wentz in the same dressing room. Maybe I'm wrong?

  3. idk where this was...pretty cool though...the honda civic in 2007 had FOB,+44,cobra, paul 08 was panic and motion city.

  4. This is a great show preview! I'm working with the tour and I know you'll have a great time. If anyone wasn't lucky enough to snag tickets (it's a sold out show), check out The winner (and a guest!) will win a trip to Charlotte, NC to attend a Blink-182 concert on October 1st. And on top of that, s/he will even win Travis Barker's 1966 Cadillac Coupe de Ville.

    Have fun tomorrow!
