Blink-182 Play Intimate Show for KROQ in L.A. – Exclusive Photos
It’s been 10 years since Blink-182 released what they refer to as their ‘Untitled’ album, and in honor of that, they booked some smaller Southern California venues, including the Hollywood Palladium and the Wiltern Theater. But nothing compares the intimacy of the KROQ Red Bull Soundstage, where 200 lucky fans got up close and personal last Thursday morning (Nov. 7) with the ever-popular trio.
Several days earlier, the room hosted Avenged Sevenfold, and Blink had no problem re-heating the space with a blistering seven-song set featuring five ‘Untitled’ cuts. Playful and loose, co-frontmen Marc Hoppus and Tom DeLonge cracked wise while drummer Travis Barker focused more on his kit than on the crowd.
After the set, which was broadcast online, the band sat down with Stryker from KROQ-FM for a brief Q&A. If the intimate performance sounded great on the Internet, it was nothing like being there at the Red Bull Soundstage, a unique garage-like setting that allows fans to photograph and interact with some of the biggest bands on the planet.
