Blink 182 at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, September 3


This is either someone's dream line-up -- or your worst nightmare: According to reports, Blink 182's reunion tour is coming to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Thursday, September 3 (that's one day after my 30th birthday -- mark your calendars). Openers announced so far include Weezer and Fall Out Boy. [EDIT, 5/18/09, 5 P.M.: While both of those bands are confirmed openers for this tour, no St. Louis support has been confirmed.] I stand by Blink 182's last record as being fantastic -- no, really -- and dig Fall Out Boy. But if you're a Weezer fan, hands up if you're going to admit to going to this show. I'm not sure I know any old-school Pinkerton people who can still abide the band.
