Blink-182 Announce 2018 Las Vegas Residency At Palms Casino
Blink-182 are inviting you to turn the lights off and carry yourself to Las Vegas starting this May. The GRAMMY nominees have announced Kings of the Weekend, a select residency run at the Palms Casino Resort that will launch May 26–27 and continue on select weekends through November.
"When the Palms asked us to do a residency here in Vegas, we said ‘Absolutely!'" said Mark Hoppus via a statement. "Now, we just have to cast our showgirls, create our set list — a true throwback of Vegas classics with Sinatra, Liberace. Maybe we can even marry someone onstage. … The possibilities in Vegas are endless."

Bassist Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker will be joined by recent addition Matt Skiba (guitars/vocals), who has replaced the departed Tom DeLonge.
