California natives Blink-182, consisting of guitarist/vocalist Tom Delonge, bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker have been hugely successful in Punk/Rock music since their 1997 album “Dude Ranch” went platinum. They soon started rolling out the hits with songs “All The Small Things,” “What’s My Age Again” and “Adam’s Song” all coming off 1999’s chart topping album Enema of the State. The album sold 4 million copies. More hit records followed and even a brief hiatus occurred in the last decade, but the rockers have since reunited to record and tour and remain as strong as ever.

Mohegan Sun Arena is ranked 3rd in the U.S. and 4th in the world by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 and 2010 recipient of a Country Music Award for “Casino of The Year.”  Venues Today also ranked Mohegan Sun Arena #4 in 2011 and ranked in the top six of “Top Stops of The Decade” in 2012.

Performing live in the Arena on May 18th

Multi-platinum selling, #1-charting rockers Blink-182 announced several tour dates in May surrounding the group’s co-headlining of The Bamboozle Festival 2012. They will perform live with special guest The All American Rejects on Friday, May 18th at 8:00pm at Mohegan Sun Arena.

The most recent video from 2011’s Neighborhoods, Blink-182’s first new album in eight years which debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, is for the hit single “After Midnight.”  Says singer bassist Mark Hoppus of the video: “We wanted something that was a little troubled because the song is a troubled love song.  Isaac (Rentz, the director) came up with this idea of a guy and a girl trapped inside of an insane asylum.  They find one another, they escape themselves for the evening and they have a night of reckless romance before they get put back into their cells.”

Hoppus, guitarist Tom DeLonge and drummer Travis Barker reunited in 2009 after a tumultuous four-year hiatus.  Neighborhoods marks Blink-182’s sixth studio effort, following three consecutive platinum-plus albums.
