Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, which is currently undergoing a $620m overhaul, made another eye-catching announcement this week with the news that pop-punk legends Blink-182 would be starting a residency at the property in May.

The Vegas residency, labelled “Kings of the Weekend”, will begin in late May, on the weekend of 26th/27th, and then continue throughout the summer and autumn.

Further dates for the diary are the weekends of June 8-9, 15-16 and 23-24;
October 26-27; and November 2-3, 9-10, 16-17.

Formed in 1992 in California, Blink-182 are legends of the pop-punk scene. The trio of Mark Hoppus on vocals and bass, Travis Barker on drums and Matt Skiba on the guitar, will add the crowning glory to Palms’ resurgence following a significant expansion of the property, which continues.

Tickets for the band’s Vegas dates go on sale this week.
