Blink-182, A Day to Remember and All Time Low Rock Jones Beach in Long Island, NY
It was a sold-out show at the Nikon Theatre at Jones Beach in Long Island, N.Y., and for Blink-182 fans it’s been a long time coming. Thousands of fans turned out for a packed headlining concert by Blink-182 with stellar support from A Day to Remember and All Time Low.
Punk rock trio Blink-182 had a full house to unleash their 24 songs into their set on. The band is currently touring in support of their brand new album California, and they cranked out new tracks “Bored to Death,” “Cynical,” “Los Angeles,” “San Diego” and “Brohemian Rhapsody.”
It’s no surprise, many fans miss longtime member Tom DeLonge, who’s busy chasing the paranormal (check out Strange Times). The camaraderie and vibrant, juvenile essence between Delonge and Mark Hoppus was definitely part of the glow that the band captured live. That said, the addition of new member Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio allows Blink-182 to power on and deliver the anthems we know and love such as, “Feeling This,” “What’s My Age Again?,“ “The Rock Show,” “I Miss You,” the hilariously derogatory “Family Reunion” and so many others.
Drummer Travis Barker has certainly had his share of ups and downs but what remains consistent is his talent and vigor behind the kit. The encore included the very popular “All the Small Things” and the night ended with a huge confetti blast during “Dammit.”
While some fans were very familiar with A Day To Remember’s immense force, for others it was their first time to the party. It kicked off with beach balls unloading on the crowd, throughout the night other things thrown into the audience also included toilet paper, as they TP’d the fans in front, who basked and twirled in the white papery tornado. ADTR are gearing up to release their new album, Bad Vibrations, and performed their new track “Paranoia.”
All Time Low frontman Alex Gaskarth continuously joked and expressed his thoughts that the New York crowd looked “sexy” (and they did). The band kicked off the night with a highly energetic and very humorous performance. All Time Low were the perfect mix of charisma and nasally, upbeat, punk rock tunes.
