Blink-182 To Play ‘Enema Of The State’ In Full To Celebrate Its 20th Birthday

Blink-182‘s Mark Hoppus has confirmed plans to toast Enema Of The State‘s 20th birthday by performing the iconic pop-punk LP live and in full.

Sadly, so far it seems like they’ve only got one performance in mind, and it’s at a festival in the US (boo-urns!)

“I think we’re going to play EOTS in its entirety at [California’s] Back to the Beach to celebrate 20yrs,” the bassist and singer told a fan on Twitter.

Blink’s third LP, Enema was released in 1999 and was a deadset breakout, selling over 15 million copies worldwide and shooting the band to international superstardom off the back of chart-scorching singles like ‘What’s My Age Again?’, ‘All The Small Things’ and ‘Adam’s Song’.

However, it doesn’t seem like this milestone event of the disc’s 20th will be enough to trigger a reunion with prodigal singer/guitarist, Tom DeLonge, who’s still busy hunting aliens.

“There’s been no reach-out, or no talk of getting the original line-up back together,” Hoppus told Pedestrian last week.

Guess it’s still the Mark, Matt Skiba & Travis show for now, then.

In other good news, drummer Travis Barker recently confirmed that an “experimental” new album from the trio would be released before June of this year.

“I think we’re creating one of the most important Blink albums, so I’m really proud of it,” he said.

While you wait, Blink-182 fans in Melbourne are due to be treated to a night of Blink bangers performed live by a pop-punk supergroup made up of members from Short Stack, Hellions and Heroes For Hire next month.
