Blink-182 Get Back Together For The Cell-Phone-Wielding Kids

noah | May 15, 2009 9:45 am
Last night, blink-182 took to the stage for the first time in four years when they played a mini-set at a party for T-Mobile in Los Angeles; the trio was the surprise addition to a bill that already featured TRVS/DJ-AM (featuring blink drummer Travis Barker) and Weezer (who’s touring with the band this summer). Perhaps because of the cell-phone-centric nature of the party, there are quite a few clips from the evening. Above, “Rock Show,” accompanied by someone who is totally freaking psyched to be there; a clip of “Dammit” (complete with “AT & T can suck my dick” shout-out) after the jump.
Mark Hoppus blogged about the show in the wee hours of this morning:

the return of blink-182 to the stage!!! t-mobile threw a big party at the paramount lot here in los angeles to launch their new sidekick, and they asked us to play. the whole thing was a secret. travis and dj-am were already scheduled to perform, and as a surprise ending, blink-182 came out at the very end and played a few songs. during the night, weezer performed and played the hits, along with a few covers. TRVS/DJ-AM dominated (as they always do), and then we played. to be honest, it was one of the best nights of my life. thanks to everyone who was there. thanks to t-mobile. and most of all, thanks to travis and tom. you are my brothers, and it feels amazing to share the stage with you once again.
