Blink 182 Reunion Tour
Three cheers for Blink 182 – touring done right! The first cheer is because they announced they decided to reunite. The second cheer is because tour dates have been announced (which means the tour is real). The third cheer is for the fact they are combating high ticket prices. What? A band working as hard as they can to lower ticket prices? That’s unheard of! Well, hear it now.
As reported on livedaily.com and Rolling Stone, Blink 182 will be launching a summer tour with lawn seat prices at $20, all inclusive. Which means, for once, $20 = $20. No extra fees, no hidden parking charge, no venue charge, no convenience fee, no you bought your ticket on a day of the week that ends in “Y” fee, just $20. No word on what the theater seats will cost, but I’m sure that the boys are doing all they can to keep those prices low too.
Opening acts for this tour include, The All American Rejects, Taking Back Sunday, Panic At The Disco, Weezer, Fall Out Boy, Chester French, and Asher Roth. With the exception of those last two bands (never heard of them until now), these are great opening acts. The openers rotate throughout the tour and no word on which band will open which shows. I’m hoping with crossed fingers for either The All American Rejects or Taking Back Sunday to play New Jersey. One of those bands with Blink for $20 all inclusive? SOLD!
The tour kicks off on July 24th in Las Vegas and runs through October 3rd in Atlantic City. Hmmm, should they call this the Gambling Across America tour?
