Blink-182 Shares Plans For First-Ever Las Vegas Residency

Blink-182 is getting ready to hit the stage once again.

Variety reports that rock band Blink-182 is gearing up for a Las Vegas residency titled "Kings of the Weekend." The group will perform at Palms Casino Resort's Pearl Concert Theater, which was recently renovated. Their first-ever Las Vegas residency will boast 16 dates and will kick off on May 26, 2018 before coming to a close on Nov. 17.

Regarding their new gig, Blink-182's vocalist and bassist Mark Hoppus said, "When the Palms asked us to do a residency here in Vegas, we said 'Absolutely!'" He then joked, "Now, we just have to cast our show girls, create our set list – a true throwback of Vegas classics with Sinatra, Liberace. Maybe we can even marry someone on stage...The possibilities in Vegas are endless."

According to Us Weekly, Blink-182, which now consists of Hoppus as well as Travis Barker and Matt Skiba, is planning to perform their band's hits as well songs from their seventh studio album California, which was released in July 2016.

Palms Casino Resort's General Manager, Jon Gray, told Variety, "Blink-182 is one of those bands that crosses over multiple genres of music, and also transcends many generations of music lovers." Gray continued, "They're a perfect fit for a true rock residency – our first at the Pearl."

Tickets for Blink-182's "Kings of the Weekend" residency go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 23. Tickets start at $59, not including applicable fees. Fans can purchase tickets on, at any Station Casinos Rewards Center, or at the Pearl Concert Theater box office.
