ABC/Paula LoboA Blink-182 fan has suggested a unique way for the band to celebrate the upcoming 20th anniversary of their live album The Mark, Tom and Travis Show (The Enema Strikes Back!) — and bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus seems all for it.
In a Twitter Q&A, the fan asked if Blink could perform the exact same set again, complete with all the album’s inter-track banter and jokes, “performed with their original zest.” In response, Hoppus wrote, “That’s a fantastic idea.”
However, since Tom DeLonge isn’t in the band any more, a potential TMTTS 20th anniversary show wouldn’t be an exact recreation. Unless, of course, Blink decided to invite the Angels & Airwaves frontman/UFO researcher back into the group for the show.
The Mark, Tom and Travis Show was originally recorded over two nights in November 1999 before being released as a live album in 2000.
Meanwhile, another Blink record will hit the big 2-0 in a few weeks: 1999’s Enema of the State, which was originally released June 1, 1999. The punk trio celebrated that anniversary last month by performing the album, which spawned the singles “All the Small Things,” “What’s My Age Again?” and “Adam’s Song” in full at Southern California’s Back to the Beach festival.
