Blink-182 / Fall Out Boy @ NYC 10/4

As Blink-182’s reunion tour winds down, the trio rolled into Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden on a Sunday night with support from Asher Roth and Fall Out Boy. This review serves as a brief supplement to the two prior Blink-182 reviews (Holmdel, New Jersey and Columbia, Maryland) covered by inTuneMusic, so please read those first.

Though I missed Asher Roth (much to my pleasure), I unfortunately missed Chicago quartet Fall Out Boy. One interesting moment during the set, however, came when Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus shaved Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz’s head. Fall Out Boy’s full set:

Blink-182 began with “Dumpweed” and rolled through their entire Greatest Hits album, minus the excellent “M+Ms” and the recently discontinued “Adam’s Song”, removed from the set due to the passing of drummer Travis Barker’s good friend, DJ AM. Without “Adam’s Song”, the band’s set was slightly shorter than previous dates, but still a very solid outing; of course, bassist Mark Hoppus and guitarist Tom Delonge were vulgar yet childishly charming throughout. The full set:
