Blink-182 Kick Off Profanity Filled Reunion Tour

(antiMusic) Spin was on hand to document the kick off of Blink-182's profanity filled U.S. tour. Here is part of their write-up: Blink-182's tour kick-off Thursday night at Las Vegas' the Joint venue was the kind of show that doubled as one prolonged rim shot, a tongue-in-(butt)-cheek time warp back to junior high, starring a band that has long served as the itching powder in pop rock's jock strap.

After sets from openers Valencia and Motion City Soundtrack, who played songs off their excellent 2007 release, Even if It Kills Me (Weezer, Fall Out Boy and others will join the tour later), Blink singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge walked onstage and spit the first words to a sold-out crowd: "Motherf**ker, f**k, sh*t, cocks**ker."

That's it, just a random string of profanities that served as a potty-mouthed precursor for what was to come over the next 90 minutes or so. "Good point," singer/bassist Mark Hoppus chimed in, playing the eye-rolling straight guy to the fount of snark that is his bandmate. - What about the music? Find out here
