Blink-182 in Concert (also known as The Summer Tour and the Greatest Hits Tour) was the tenth concert tour by American pop punk band blink-182. It is the band's first tour since 2004. Bassist/singer Mark Hoppus jokingly referred to the tour as One Way Ticket to Boneville, a name they got from a fan on a KROQ interview.[1] In 2009, it ranked 32nd on Pollstar's "Top 50 Tours in North America", earning over $25 million.[2]

Background[edit]

The band performing in Las Vegas

After tensions among the band members arose in 2004, plans for a spring 2005 tour in North America were scrapped. In early 2005, a confirmed appearance at the Music for Relief benefit concert to be held in Anaheim, California, U.S. was cancelled. On February 22, 2005, guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge announced he had quit the band.[3]

The members went their separate ways. DeLonge formed a new band, Angels & Airwaves, which released two albums and a DVD, entitled Start the Machine, chronicling the final days of Blink-182 and the genesis of Angels & Airwaves. Hoppus and Barker formed a new project +44, which released one album in 2006. The new +44 album was still in pre-production.

At the 51st Grammy Awards ceremony on February 8, 2009, all three members of the band appeared onstage for the first time since December 2004.[4] Barker announced the band's reformation, stating that "we used to play music together, and we decided we're going to play music together again," with Hoppus adding, "Blink-182 is back!" A message appearing on the band's website the same day confirmed the reformation and added that the band was in the studio writing and recording a new album and preparing for a world tour.[4] The band also updated their "smiley face" logo to feature six arrows instead of the previous five. After the on-stage announcement many fans began to speculate on Travis Barker's arm being in a sling. An MTV article released on February 10 claimed that Barker had recently undergone surgery to repair "extensive nerve damage," from which a recovery could take up to ten weeks. This would not affect the tour, which started in the summer of 2009.[5]

On February 16, DeLonge confirmed that Blink-182 would be touring in "a big event" this summer. DeLonge went on to note that his commitments with Angels & Airwaves would be held off and the band would release a new album coupled with a feature film in 2010. DeLonge stated that the new Blink-182 record would be a fusion of all his previous works, including Box Car Racer and Angels & Airwaves.[6]

As a surprise to fans, the band played their first live performance since 2004 at the T-Mobile launch for the new Sidekick at the Paramount Pictures lot in Hollywood, California on May 14, 2009.[7] In addition to the performance, the band made their first television appearance since the 2005 break up; they played "The Rock Show" on May 18 and also performed "All the Small Things" on May 19, both on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
