How do I know my generation is getting old?
That’s right, Blink-182 is getting residency. From the LVRJ:
Guess this is growing up: Pop-punk mainstays Blink-182 will be settling down at the Palms with a 16-show stint at the renovated Pearl.
Dubbed the “King of the Weekend” residency, the band’s run at the Palms launches May 26 and 27 and includes dates in June (8-9, 15-16, 23-24), October (26-27) and November (2-3, 9-10, 16-17).
This will be the first extended engagement at the new-look Pearl, which closed for refurbishments in December after The Killers’ headlining “Holiday Havoc” performance as part of a $620 million property-wide overhaul.
This is why I advise all bands to stay friendly with bandmates or at least on a level where you can stand to be in the same room with the guys. The reason: you’ll never go poor if you had a half-decent run in the music industry. There will always be people coming to Vegas for a convention and need something to do. One thing leads to another and Doug asks his buddy Jeff, who is also in town, if he wants to go catch Blink at the Palms.
Blink should be playing dirt bike races, but here they are getting $60/ticket in Vegas. BTW, Mark Hoppus is 46; Travis Barker is 42.
