Linkin Park + Blink-182 Team Up for Stadium Shows, Funny or Die Video
It's on! Linkin Park and Blink-182 will team up this summer for a pair of East Coast stadium shows. The two bands, along with special guest Machine Gun Kelly, expect to put plenty of butts in the seats for shows at Citi Field in Flushing, N.Y., on July 28 and at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pa., on July 30.
It should be noted that along with Linkin Park, Blink-182 and Machine Gun Kelly, the July 28 show in Flushing will also feature hip-hop legends Wu Tang Clan, making for what should be one of the top concert bills of the summer.
A pre-sale for the shows begins May 9. You can register for the pre-sale via Linkin Park's website. The general public on-sale date is May 12.
To help celebrate their pairing this summer, the two bands got together to participate in a hilarious Funny or Die video which can be seen above. The clip, titled "A First Date With Blink-182 and Linkin Park," finds both bands accompanying a couple on their first date, with Blink backing the guy and Linkin Park backing the girl, each offering advice (sometimes in song lyric form) and urging the pair toward coupledom ... or not! Watch it play out above.
Linkin Park are promoting their latest album One More Light, which will be released May 19. You can pre-order copies at this location. Meanwhile, Blink-182 have a deluxe edition of their California album set to arrive also on May 19. It features 11 new songs, plus an acoustic version of their hit song "Bored to Death." Get your pre-orders in here.
