Sound: The sound was awesome, it wasn't my first concert but it was my first Blink concert and it was amazing. Toms voice was heard so well, Marks wasn't as loud but it was still good. The guitar bass and drums were about as loud as the crowd was singing out every word to every song for about an hour and a half straight. Toms guitar solo sounded real different, it was like you heard it but the screaming girls kinda drowned it out. // 8
Perfomance: They opened with Feeling This, and followed through with Easy Target, then took it back with Whats My Age Again. It was great because they didn't stick to just one album. The lighting was amazing too, and the lights went out and it was quiet for a little bit then the lights came back on yo show Travis at another drum set located over the audience where he played one of the greatest if not the best drum solo I've ever seen. Then after a while Mark said it was time for "Old Shit" and they played a melody that started with Dumpweed, then into bits and pieces of great old songs like MMS, Josie, Carousel, and then finished Dumpweed. Tom was hilarious, they were all just how we love them.
At one point during the show someone through "Illegal Contraband" on the stage as Tom said. Tom then told the crowd it will shrink your testicles, and then told a guard to save it for HIM. The audience was so into it, people of al ages were there to see Blink and I don't think any of them were disappointed. They closed with Dammit just like every other concert so that's a plus to. // 10
Overall Impression: USA, Tinley Park, Tweeter Center, Sunday, June 13, 2004. AT 45.50 the ticket is worth paying for to see this concert. The Living End opened for them and they were a great band but no one really got into it because we were all waiting for Blink 182 to play. Even if your not into punk rock or Blink you should still go, its a major place for hot girls barely dressed. I wanna go to the next show when they're closer here but I'm not sure when it is. Overall, whether you have liked Blink 182 since Flyswatter, or juss since their self-titled release, this show was awesome, everything I hoped it would be and more, you have to check it out! With the great music, flashing lights, and Tom being a dumbass you won't be let down by going to it. // 10
