Tom DeLonge Reacts To Skiba’s Blink-182 Songs


Mark Hoppus has discussed Tom DeLonge singing Bored to Death and Cynical, songs recorded while Matt Skiba was in his place in Blink-182.

He wrote: “Tom has been totally receptive to singing the Skiba songs. There’s no bad blood there. Nothing but support and respect all around.”

Blink-182 made a surprise appearance at Coachella earlier this month and the band’s classic lineup of Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker officially kicked off their first tour together in nearly a decade. Taking the stage at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota on Thursday night, the pop-punk trio ran through a 25-song setlist.

Notably, the show Blink-182 perform “Cynical” and “Bored to Death,” two songs recorded and released by the band with Matt Skiba following DeLonge’s departure in 2015. Additionally, Blink dusted off “Adam’s Song” for the first time with DeLonge since 2009. Check out the full setlist and fan-captured video footage below.

Blink-182’s North American reunion runs through July, with Turnstile providing support. You can find tickets to all of their upcoming shows here. Afterwards, they’ll head to the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and South America.

Blink-182 are expected to release a new album sometime in the near future. Barker recently told fans that the band would have the album finished before leaving for their tour.
