During Lil Wayne’s set, Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Matt Skiba walked up to him with a joint on a silver tray to celebrate him turning 37. 

“I’ll take this now,” Wayne said right before he sparked it up with the help of Barker and an off-stage hand. “Thank you guys, thank you. My fucking brothers for life.”

Following the end of the tour, Mark Hoppus has opened up up about their iconic Enema era and former bandmate Tom DeLonge. 

It’s been three long years since blink dropped their Grammy-nominated 2016 full-length California—their first with the addition of Matt Skiba following Tom DeLonge’s departure in 2015.

Still, the band looks back on their early days with fondness.

“There was a real unity of spirit in the band; [it’s] when the band found itself,” Hoppus said.

“When Tom was in the band, that’s when Blink did its best work,” he added. “Now post-Tom, with Matt in the band, we’re approaching songs differently.”

As far as the current relationships go between the former bandmates, Hoppus revealed there are no hard feelings.

“I talked with Tom for the first time in two years right before we started this tour. The conversation was more about us just telling each other, ‘No hard feelings. You do your thing, we’ll do our thing.’ It’s all good.”
