blink 182: UK (Cardiff), December 7, 2004
The audience loved it. However, they played a lot of the songs at double speed and you somehow got lost in it all, it was too quick.

Sound: The sound was great, a real good atmosphere. At time of writing Blink have spilt up (sadly). Tom used several guitars including his signature Strats and ES-335's. It sounded great, not too blurey. Tom forgot the lyrics in the second verse of "Anthem Part 2" but it was al comical with lots of fun and laughter, something Blink excel (led) at. // 10

Perfomance: The audience loved it. However, they played a lot of the songs at double speed and you somehow got lost in it all, it was too quick. That was the one thing that really irritated me and put me off Blink afterwards. The new album cover was put at the back with lots of strobe lighting. Mark even played a drum solo at the end, as did Travis at the end of "Down" appearing from nowhere on a mini-stage at the back of the arena. // 6

Overall Impression: The CIA (Cardiff, Wales, UK) was a great place for the show. For 20, it wernt bad, but could've been better. The annoying thing about being under 18 at these things is that you miss out on the nude girls and beer but hey, only 3 more years for me. I loved everything except the first support band (the Kinesin, I think) and the fact that the band played everything too quick. However a great night out. O yeh, the second support band (Sugarcult) were great, good show. // 8
