After spending a tumultuous childhood marred by parental divorce issues and constant shuffling around, current bassist and co-lead vocalist Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 was able to reconnect with his older sister Anne after he dropped out of college in 1992. Having played bass whilst in high school in bands such as the Descendents and Bad Religion, Mark co-founded Blink-182 with Tom DeLonge whom he met through his sister and released a string of demo tapes until they were able to get themselves signed on to Cargo Music Records the following year. After causing a modest stir with their debut album Cheshire Cat
in 1994, Blink-182 started making their way up the ranks in the big leagues with their sophomore offering Dude Ranch,
which eventually got certified platinum, took on Travis Barker as their new drummer and broke into the top ten of Billboard 200 with Enema of the State
in 1999. You will surely find yourself content like the "Cheshire Cat" at the gig featuring Blink-182 & All-American Rejects
With the record going penta-platinum and spawned their first chart-topper "All the Small Things" that has since then become their signature track, Blink-182 blasted to the top of Billboard 200 with ‘Take Off Your Pants and Jacket’ in 2001 and then retained their top billing with the follow-up self-titled album two years later. With the album posting a pair of top-ten hits including the #1 "I Miss You," Blink-182 went on a hiatus for the second part of the 2000s. The band reunited in 2011 and instantly regained their former multi-hued glory with Neighborhoods
that peaked on the second spot on Billboard 200. These punk rockers will surely rile up the neighborhood at the Blink-182 & All-American Rejects
On the eve of the new millennium, the essence of the all-American rejects arose from small-town Oklahoma that is Stillwater whilst the seminal elements were still contending with the teen angst of being in high school. The All-American Rejects, namely Tyson Ritter, Nick Wheeler ad Jesse Tabish produced a self-titled demo CD at the turn of the millennium and after Tabish's departure, converted it into their first EP Same Girl, New Songs
. After almost ending up in the doghouse, the band was finally signed to Doghouse Records in 2001 and released their eponymous debut album two years later. And there's no doubt that the Blink-182 & All-American Rejects
are going to go completely doggone crazy whilst on tour together.
With the single "Swing, Swing" getting the ball rolling by peaking at the 17th spot on the US Pop chart and sliding into the top-ten on the US Alternative one, The All-American Rejects
broke into the top-ten on the US Indie chart and peaked at 25 on Billboard 200, eventually going platinum. The follow-up Move Along
moved itself into the top-ten ranking on Billboard 200 and garnered a double-platinum certification. It spawned top-ten hits such as "Dirty Little Secret" and "It Ends Tonight," including the title track "Gives You Hell" that became their first number one single and has since become their signature track as well as getting a quadri-platinum certification. With the release of their fourth studio "offspring" ‘Kids in the Street’
in the offing, the All-American Rejects are busy in Shaking Off the Rust
whilst on tour. So get your Blink-182 & All-American Rejects tickets
