Feeling This: Blink 182 at the BIC on Saturday
11:00am Friday 6th July 2012 in Music
AMERICAN pop punk band Blink-182 will be bouncing along to the BIC on Saturday night.
The Californian three-piece come to Bournemouth following the release of their acclaimed sixth studio album Neighborhoods last September, their first record since the band split in 2005.
Blink-182, otherwise known as Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker, are probably best known for 1999’s Enema of the State, which went on to sell 15million copies and spawned perhaps the band’s most well-known singles All the Small Things, What’s My Age Again and Adam’s Song.
Enema of the State was Blink-182’s third studio album, following 1994’s Cheshire Cat and 1996’s Dude Ranch.
It preceded 2001’s Take Off Your Pants and Jacket and their self-titled fifth studio album, released in 2003 and heralding a more mature sound for the trio.
Blink-182 split in 2005 but reformed in 2009.
Their new album Neighborhoods is continuing the band’s progression into more mature themes.
Blink-182 has sold more than 27million albums in total and has won multiple awards, including Best New Act at the 2000 MTV Europe Music Awards.
