Blink-182 Book ‘Kings of the Weekend’ Las Vegas Residency
Blink-182 are Las Vegas bound.
The pop-punk icons are the latest rock band to land a residency in Sin City with 16 dates blocked off during select weekends between the start date of May 26 and 27 through mid-November. The band will be performing their 'Kings of the Weekend' sets at the Palms Casino Resort at the Pearl Concert Theater and bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus has some potential surprises in store for the crowds.
"Now, we just have to cast our showgirls, create our set list – a true throwback of Vegas classics with Sinatra, Liberace," Hoppus commented in a statement (via Rolling Stone). "Maybe we can even marry someone onstage... The possibilities in Vegas are endless."

Even with Tom Delonge's departure, Blink-182 have managed to keep their ship righted with Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba, landing festival headline spots (they just wrapped up their appearance at the Musink Festival over the weekend) and riding high on the success of 2016's California. The album hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 and has been certified Gold in the United States.
