blink-182 on Leno
2009-05-21 by Jom STAFF | 54 Comments

Less than a week after playing their first live gig (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXXA-ODSRyE) where tMobile-sponsored Mark Hoppus declared that AT&T "can suck it," blink-182 played two songs on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on the 18th and 19th, respectively.

While reviews have been mixed regarding the live performances so far, all three band members have gone on record expressing their happiness about being able to play together again.

Their tour with Weezer, Fall Out Boy, and Panic at the Disco will kick off July 24th in Vegas and run through October 3rd nationwide.

when they play live, they're like a bad cover band of themselves.
and I still love them.

Tom has actually gotten worse at guitar in the past few years. Yikes. And the band was off as a whole. I know they've been broken up for a while, but it's not like these are new songs. All The Small Things was just absolutely terrible. Out of sync, unorganized and I think Tom actually out-tone-deaf'd himself. I'm starting to think more and more that this reunion was a mistake.

The Rock Show was alright but All The Small Things was down right horrible. New album will probably blow.

I thought they were ok musically, but Tom was insisting on singing in his AVA voice which was rubbish. I'm sort of ooking forward to their reunion, will probably see them if they come to the UK even though whenever i've seen them before they werent that great.

Joe you're saying that as if hearing Tom's regular live voice is any better. I think the main problem here is that they're insisting on playing these songs 'properly' now, instead of how they used to just make them really fast and fun.

Has anyone here seen them live before? If you think these were bad, post a video of an older performance and eat your words. This is probably the best they've ever played together musically, Mark sounds awesome, and while Tom sounds like he's in AvA still it wasn't too that bad.

Yeah Tom's singing was pretty dredful. Travis and Mark sounded solid though. I'll take blink 182 with a subpar tom over no blink though.

The love between Mark and Tom will never be the same again
Watching The Rock Show made me actually miss them for the first time in a long time. But christ, All The Small Things was appalling. Tom's trying to be this new super cool dude that he is in Angels and Airwaves and it just doesn't suit what Blink did and he just looks like a twat

The only way Blink could ever stay good was if they just never aged, that way they wouldn't be maturing an doing different things and having families and it would still be convincing

Am I the only one who thought All The Small Things was awesome? Maybe I'm just on a high from the fact that they came back but I find Tom's voice pretty great. It sounds matured and idk it doesn't really fit the old songs brilliantly but overall his voice is sweet.

Tom has always been the downfall of this band. I thought Dude Ranch was such a great album because Mark sang all the best songs on that album...Josie, Pathetic, Dammit, etc.

I was dragged to one of their shows about 10 years back and they were the worst band I've ever seen live.
