Palms Casino Resort and Live Nation present GRAMMY-nominated trio Blink-182’s first-ever Las Vegas rock residency “Kings of the Weekend” at the newly renovated Pearl Concert Theater. The 16-show run, which begins May 26th with dates through November, is one of the resort’s first major entertainment collaborations as part of the recently announced $620 million property-wide overhaul. In anticipation of announcing this milestone, Blink-182 took a hand at making their unique mark on the property during its recent renovations. Known for their comical antics, the experience was captured on video.

May – 26-27
June – 8-9, 15-16, 23-24

“Blink-182 is one of those bands that crosses over multiple genres of music, and also transcends many generations of music lovers. They’re a perfect fit for a true rock residency – our first at the Pearl,” states Palms Casino Resort General Manager Jon Gray.
“When the Palms asked us to do a residency here in Vegas, we said ‘Absolutely!'” said blink-182’s Mark Hoppus. He jokingly continued, “Now, we just have to cast our show girls, create our set list – a true throwback of Vegas classics with Sinatra, Liberace. Maybe we can even marry someone on stage…The possibilities in Vegas are endless.”
Blurring the line between rock, punk, and pop, Blink-182 with Mark Hoppus (vocals/bass), Travis Barker (drums), and Matt Skiba (guitar), will bring it’s nearly 25-year history of hit songs, inappropriate tales, and nonsensical antics to life in “Kings of the Weekend.” The band is busy creatively putting together a musical adventure for the Vegas residency.
The band’s seventh studio release, California, features the Billboard Alternative Chart-topping “Bored to Death” and catchy “She’s Out of Her Mind,” as well as the residency title track “Kings of the Weekend.”
