RodeoHouston 2017 Concert: Blink-182
Blink-182 rose to fame in the 1990s with their upbeat, witty punk-rock ballads; however, their rise to the top was anything but smooth. Throughout the course of their more than 24-year-long career, the band has separated and rejoined, twice.
In 2015, Blink-182 came back with a bang, featuring new lead singer/guitarist Matt Skiba, original co-founder/vocalist/bassist Mark Hoppus, and drummer since 1998, Travis Barker. The newly formed trio’s 2016 release of California was an instant success and the band’s first No. 1 album since 2001. The album’s hit single, “Bored to Death,” remained at No. 1 for five weeks.
