“blink-182 is one of those bands that crosses over multiple genres of music, and also transcends many generations of music lovers. They’re a perfect fit for a true rock residency – our first at the Pearl,” said Palms Casino Resort General Manager Jon Gray.
“When the Palms asked us to do a residency here in Vegas, we said ‘Absolutely!'” said blink-182’s Mark Hoppus. He jokingly continued, “Now, we just have to cast our show girls, create our set list – a true throwback of Vegas classics with Sinatra, Liberace. Maybe we can even marry someone on stage…The possibilities in Vegas are endless.”
Blurring the line between rock, punk, and pop, blink-182 with Mark Hoppus (vocals/bass), Travis Barker (drums), and Matt Skiba (guitar), will bring it’s nearly 25-year history of hit songs, inappropriate tales, and nonsensical antics to life in “Kings of the Weekend.” The band is busy creatively putting together a musical adventure for the Vegas residency.
The band’s seventh studio release California, features the Billboard Alternative Chart-topping “Bored to Death” and catchy “She’s Out of Her Mind,” as well as the residency title track “Kings of the Weekend.”
