Bassist Mark Hoppus and guitarist Matt Skiba alternated lead vocals on the stripped-down “Kings of the Weekend,” a highlight from their most recent LP, 2016’s California. Drummer Travis Barker anchored the track with his rapid snare rim hits and hi-hat bashing.
For “I Miss You,” a signature track from the band’s self-titled 2004 album, Skiba recreated former guitarist Tom DeLonge’s yelped lead vocal, and Hoppus countered with the lower, echoed part. Barker once again commanded the song – from the funky groove to a Keith Moon-like cymbal flourish.
Blink-182 recently announced a 16-date live residency at Las Vegas’ Palms Casino Resort. Their “Kings of the Weekend” stint will begin May 26th and run on various weekends through November 17th.
