What You'll Get
Ancient singers had no microphones, which meant audiences were quieter, and bringing a pet howler monkey to a performance was twice as irritating. Hoot and holler all you want with today’s deal: for $32, you get one ticket for a seat in the upper level to see blink-182 with Rancid and Against Me! at the Credit Union Centre on Friday, August 26, at 7 p.m. (a $49.50 value before fees, or up to a $63.50 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees, GST, and PST). Doors open at 6 p.m.
Quintessential pop-punk idols blink-182 delight fans with up-tempo jams and a trademark, irreverent humour. Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge’s raw vocals and brain-burrowing guitar riffs interweave with Travis Barker’s toe-tap-inducing percussion to serve up aural stews that nourish eardrums weaned on diets of TV static. With a classic catalogue of rebellious anthems and loss-tinged reflections on love including “All the Small Things” and “What’s My Age Again?,” the band draws on nearly two decades of tuneful hits. Pop-punk mainstays Rancid and Against Me! join the euphonic festivities with energetic aplomb. Musical merrymaking will take place at the massive Credit Union Centre, where the inescapable aura of a million junior hockey games cools off any fans who arrived on a unicycle while clad in head-to-toe leather.
