- Monday, September 24th,
Blink 182 played at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum Thursday in Phoenix. The show was originally planned for Sept. 14, but due to the nation's circumstances, Blink 182 postponed its concert.
Blink 182 opened its set with "The Rock Show." Blink 182 played songs from its early album, Cheshire Cat, to Take off Your Pants and Jacket, its most recent. The band even played a song paying homage to the "people that were at (its) first show outside of San Diego" at The Nile in Phoenix.
Coming near to the end of the concert, drummer Travis Barker gave the audience a little surprise. The stage that Barker's drums were on, came forward and pivoted back and forth while he played a solo. Once its set was over, Tom DeLonge, guitarist for Blink 182, came out onto the stage with an American flag while the "Star-Spangled Banner" played. Mark Hoppus, bassist, then came onto the stage wearing a Superman cape. Blink 182 finished off its concert by dedicating its last song, "Dammit," to the friends and family and all who were affected by the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.
