It’s pretty hard to believe that the classic late nineties era Enema Of The State by Blink-182 is almost 20 years old!
Well, if you in the mood for some nostalgia you might well get your wish, how about a full live set of the album by the pop-punk trio?
Blink’s Mark Hoppus hinted at the possibility of a live version of the album being played when he replied to a fan via Twitter. A fan asked: “Any chance at more simple creatures dates? Also, EOTS anniversary plans? Can’t wait for new blink. Please rest, you busy bee.”
Hoppus responded with the following: “Yes I think we’re going to play EOTS in its entirety at Back to the Beach to celebrate 20yrs.” You’ve gotta love that?
Ladies and gentlemen, I woke up this morning with a sore throat so please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I fight my way back from this inconvenient Tuesday. Namaste. Also I will answer any questions you have until my cold medicine takes effect and I fall back asleep.

So now you’re probably thinking, how about a Tom DeLonge reunion, or is that is wishful thinking at this point?
Hoppus recently explained to Pedestrian that he hasn’t been in contact with DeLonge in a few years and that there had been no talk of a possible return for the band’s former guitarist.
Hoppus explained: “There’s been no reach out, or no talk of getting the original lineup back together,” he also added that it was drama free between the two of them and even wished DeLonge well in his new venture of investigations into the unknown.” He added: “I think that Tom’s very happy doing his thing, and we are very happy doing our thing, and there’s no hard feelings, and there’s no animosity or bad blood there. It’s just like I said; he’s doing his stuff, we’re doing ours.
I mean, he’s dedicated so much of his life to [UFOs] and so much time and energy researching things and listening to people speak, and talking about it himself, that it would seem like a total bummer if he didn’t get a chance to fly into outer space and see for himself.”
DeLonge maybe out of the picture for now, but Blink fans can bask in the glow knowing that they can go see, and hear, the band’s debut album live all over again. And by the looks of it, sooner rather than later.
