Blink-182 and Lil Wayne Staff Pick

When: Tue., Sept. 10, 7 p.m. 2019
Price: $44+
What’s our age again? It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the delightfully foul-mouthed boys of Blink-182 had us questioning our age and inspired us to dry-hump to a song about suicide, but here we are — still laughing about the band’s 2001 album title, Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. The Blink-182 dudes have enlisted skateboard-loving, longtime hip-hop luminary Lil Wayne, who’s been teasing a new record, Funeral, set to drop by the end of the year (who also indirectly threatened to jump ship on this very co-headlining tour after openly complaining about low attendance during his sets and was a no-show at scheduled performance last month). Anyway, the pairing is not a total left-field move when one considers Blink drummer Travis Barker’s collaboration history, which includes Kid Cudi, RZA, the Neptunes, Run the Jewels, Yelawolf, and XXXTentacion. (Fun fact: Former Blink dude and current alien conspiracy theorist Tom DeLonge will be visiting the Fillmore a week after Blink comes to town with his band, Angels and Airwaves. Do yourself a favor and go down the DeLonge alien-truther rabbit hole. He claims he has discarded government extraterrestrial metal alloys in his possession, and his UFO organization To The Stars Academy is a fucking thing.)
