More on blink-182
The band first played Enema Of The State in full for the 20-year anniversary at Back To The Beach in April. Shortly after, Mark Hoppus teased he would bring back his bass if they played more anniversary gigs.
A month later, Hoppus teased they “might play” the album in full again amid a fan Q&A session. As mentioned, the band revealed yesterday that they were celebrating Enema Of The State’s 20 year anniversary by performing the record in its entirety on their upcoming tour.
The band made the announcement on Twitter, also noting that they will be performing other popular songs along with Enema.
“To celebrate 20 years, we’re playing Enema of the State in its entirety all summer long! And yes, we’re still playing the hits from the other albums, as well as new music. Get your tickets now, this is gonna be a fun one,” the tweet reads.
