"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," said 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 its 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."

Tickets for blink-182: Kings of the Weekend are $59, $79, $99, $109, and $169, plus applicable fees. All show times 9 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at blink182vegas.com or Ticketmaster.com. For exclusive ticket pre-sale information connect with Palms Casino Resort on socials @Palms.
