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.
