    Yep, got tickets to their final show of the tour here in SB on Monday night!!! Front and center. So stoked!

    Anyone on here ever see them play? Been wanting to since I was about 10 but never got the chance, so I'm pretty stoked!

    I saw them play back in like 96 in park city. they opened for Pennywise. They were really good live. they are super funny guys and really get the crowd pumped. they're full of comedy. You're going to have a great time.

    I remember them saying something like, "if god didn't want you to jack off, then he probably wouldn't have made your arms just the right length to grab it." They're great live.

    SWEET! So stoked!! I was super dissapointed when I missed out on the shows in LA and then they announced they're coming here as their final show of the tour.

    Saw them at Fiddlers Green with Weezer and Talking Back Sunday about a month ago.

    The show was amazing, I thought Weezer was the best, but that's just because I like Weezer better.

    Blink is ****ing funny as ****.

    saw them last week in charlotte for free. Asher Roth opened for them... what a joke he was. Blink did really well tho, had a nice light screen set up, and Travis' solo was pretty sick. played some newer stuff and of course all their classic sh!t: whats my age again, all the small things, i miss you.. etc. I would have taken pics but we had lawn seats and the camera couldnt pick up anything from that far away.

    the line up started great, and included all american rejects, fall out boy, weezer, and others. but the tour was changed up quite a bit just before they played here.. the only two bands to show up was Blink and that Asher Roth douchebag. Im glad i didnt pay for the tickets...

    Just saw them in Tampa with FOB. Not bad, but I enjoyed the opening band more (All American Rejects) Blink and FOB were just kind of phoning it in.
