Palms presents blink-182's 'Kings of the Weekend' residency

20 March 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The 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 26 May 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.

Kings of the Weekend concert dates:
  • 26-27 May
  • 8-9, 15-16, 23-24 June
  • 26-27 October
  • 2-3, 9-10, 16-17 November
Tickets for blink-182's "Kings of the Weekend" start at $59, plus applicable fees and go on sale Friday, 23 March 2018. For more information, visit the band's website.

"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 or Ticketmaster. For exclusive ticket pre-sale information connect with Palms Casino Resort on socials @Palms.
