Blink-182, one of the biggest pop punk bands of all time, will play their awesome live show at Eden next summer.
The Californian three-piece come to Eden following the release of their acclaimed sixth studio album Neighborhoods last September, their first record since the band split in 2005.
Blink-182, otherwise known as Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker, are probably best known for 1999’s seminal Enema of the State, which went on to sell 15 million copies and spawned perhaps the band’s most well-known singles All the Small Things, What’s My Age Again and Adam’s Song.
Enema of the State was Blink-182’s third studio album, following 1994’s Cheshire Cat and 1996’s Dude Ranch. It preceded 2001’s Take Off Your Pants and Jacket and their self-titled fifth studio album, released in 2003 and heralding a more mature sound for the trio. The band split in 2005 but reformed in 2009. The new album Neighborhoods continues the band’s progression into more mature themes.
Blink-182 have sold more than 27 million albums in total and have won multiple awards, including Best New Act at the 2000 MTV Europe Music Awards and Best Rock Act at the same ceremony in 2001.
Please note that the show will feature lasers throughout.
One of the band’s biggest tunes. The video is a hilarious spoof of the bling, synchronised dance routines and matching costumes found in RnB and rap videos.
This one's quite simple really: Blink-182's members running around butt naked.

The band’s mixture of punk, rock ‘n’ roll and traditional Cornish folk has seen them play alongside the Pogues and record a new version of the Cornish song Little Eyes with Ben Lovett of Mumford and Sons. Recently, Crowns have been touring the UK supporting punk band Sharks while putting the finishing touches to their debut album.
Since supporting Brandon Flowers during last year’s Eden Sessions, the Launceston lads have gained support from Radio One DJs Zane Lowe and Mike Davies as well as 6Music, XFM, the NME and Kerrang.
