blink-182, My Chemical Romance, Rancid

I know what you’re thinking: “Are you sure this listing isn’t from 2001?” It could have been, as long as you flip-flopped Rancid and My Chemical Romance’s set times. Instead, it’s this year’s version of the Honda Civic tour, with the pop-punk Blinkers headlining in support of their long-delayed comeback album, Neighborhoods. Say what you will about Blink-182’s past excursions into boring between-song adolescent humor that marred virtually every live show they ever delivered in SLC; the guys do know now to craft a catchy anthem, and drummer Travis Barker is a real ace player. Blink-182 will have to bring their “A game” to not be blown of the stage by either opening act. My Chemical Romance has far exceeded their emo roots by turning into entertaining glam-rockers, and Rancid is simply the best band o the bill, with a lengthy catalog of retro-punk and ska grooves to call on for their set.
