Blink-182 made their first televised performance since announcing their reunion at this year's Grammy Awards last night, taking the stage on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno to perform their 2001 Take Off Your Pants and Jacket hit "The Rock Show." Blink didn't sit down for an interview, but they'll be back on Leno tonight for a second performance, playing another song off their Greatest Hits.
Last week, Blink surprised the partygoers at the T-Mobile Sidekick launch festivities in Los Angeles with an unannounced three-song concert, officially ending their four-year hiatus. The pop-punk trio played "The Rock Show," "Feeling This" and "Dammit" at the Paramount Pictures lot concert, which also featured Weezer, who will serve as opening act for a third of the Blink reunion dates this summer.
Blink officially embark on their summer tour starting July 24th with a concert at Las Vegas' the Joint. As of now, the tour concludes October 3rd in another mecca of gambling, Atlantic City, New Jersey. Check out all Blink's tour dates here. Fall Out Boy will also serve as opening act for two-thirds of the tour. "When we started our band, we were like, "Man, that'd be so awesome to meet Blink-182,' " Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz told Rock Daily. "It's been a great stretch of headlining tours the last few years, but there's something interesting about opening up for bands when you have to rope the audience in."
