As the final night of Blink 182’s 10th Anniversary shows, this past Wednesday was definitely the best Blink 182 anniversary performance yet. Also celebrating the birthday of Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker, the energy at the Wiltern was especially heated this evening as the band put on an extra special performance. Even LL Cool J was up in the mix and joined Blink 182 for “Dammit.” The infamous rapper/actor sang a verse of “Momma said knock you out” during the song. It was totally awesome, and unusual all at the same moment. Scroll down to watch the video.
Blink 182’s final performance at the Wiltern was epic to say the least. Playing a total of 24 songs — the most out of their 10th Anniversary shows — which also included a 10-song encore! And to top it all off, Blink 182 played “Apple Shampoo” for the first time live since 2002! The song is a favorite from their second studio album, Dude Ranch. Aside from performing their entire self-titled album from start-to-finish, veteran Blink 182 fans were especially happy to see “M+M’s” live. That song is a classic from their debut album, Cheshire Cat.
To say the least, Blink 182 put on an amazing show, as though they were the same young punks we loved in ’96. Not to mention, L.A.’s Best Coast opened up the show! Check out the photos below of Blink 182 with Best Coast at the Wiltern.
