Blink-182 were back on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night for their second of two comeback performances. A night after Mark Hoppus took the lead on Take Off Your Pants and Jacket's "The Rock Show," it was time for Tom DeLonge to shine on Enema of the State's "All The Small Things." The performance revealed how much DeLonge's voice has changed since the band first released the song nearly a decade ago, as the guitarist broke out his Angels & Airwaves-style stately yelp. And you'll probably never see Blink and football player/analyst Terry Bradshaw share the same stage again.
The punk trio embark on their reunion jaunt — with Fall Out Boy or Weezer opening up, depending on the gig — on July 24th at Las Vegas' the Joint. From there, the band hits Canada, the Northeast, the Midwest, the Pacific Northwest and places in-between before returning to California for five shows throughout the Golden State. The tour wraps up October 3rd in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Check out all Blink's tour dates here.
Blink-182 made their first reunion appearance last week with a surprise performance at a T-Mobile Sidekick launch party in Los Angeles, where the band performed a trio of hits: "The Rock Show," "Dammit" and "Feeling This. "To be honest, it was one of the best nights of my life," Hoppus wrote on his blog after the show. "Thanks to Travis and Tom. You are my brothers, and it feels amazing to share the stage with you once again."
