Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that the members of Blink-182 are back together, and better than ever. Making an appearance during Arizona Fall Frenzy at Tempe Beach Park in Tempe, Ariz., last Saturday night, the band blazed through their catalog of pop punk hits, focusing on their most recent self-titled album.
Prior to the show Fender hooked-up with Blink bassist Mark Hoppus and Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz.
“The fans on this tour have been amazing,” said Hoppus. “It’s been really cool because after being on hiatus for five years, we had no idea what to expect when we announced that we were going back out on tour. We didn’t know if people were going to be over Blink, if it would be the people who liked us back in ‘99, but it’s been really cool because it’s been people who have followed Blink since day one, new fans and people who have never gone to see Blink before so there’s this really cool cross section.”
The pair also discussed their Fender signature basses, and shared a few of the pranks they’ve played on each other.
