Enema of the State may not be old enough to legally drink in the United States yet, but it’s reached a huge anniversary milestone which will be celebrated later this year. On Wednesday (June 5), blink-182 confirmed that they will perform their breakout record in its entirety during their upcoming summer tour.
“To celebrate 20 years, we’re playing Enema of the State in its entirety all summer long!” the band tweeted.
As if performing the 1999 album in full during the upcoming tour wasn’t enough, blink also revealed that they will play the album in its entirety during their Riot Fest set in September.
As per Riot Fest tradition, blink joins a lengthy list of other bands previously confirmed for this honor.
The Flaming Lips (Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots), WEEN (The Mollusk), Bloc Party (Silent Alarm), Taking Back Sunday (Tell All Your Friends and Louder Now), Dashboard Confessional (The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most), Against Me! (Reinventing Axl Rose and Transgender Dysphoria Blues), Glassjaw (Worship & Tribute), Senses Fail (Let it Enfold You and From the Depths of Dreams), and the newly-reunited AVAIL (Over the James) were all confirmed last month.
Enema of the State was released in June 1999 through MCA. The record, blink’s third studio effort, produced several of the group’s biggest hits including “All the Small Things,” “Adam’s Song,” and “What’s My Age Again?” Finding a home on a slew of “Greatest Albums” and “Best of” lists, the record peaked at the number nine spot on the Billboard 200 chart. To date, it has been certified five times platinum.
In May, blink-182 announced a colossal summer outing with Lil Wayne and Neck Deep. Some fans were left scratching their heads over the rapper’s addition to the pop-punk-centric roster.
The upcoming trek will find the acts performing at venues across the continent throughout June, July, August, and September. The 39-stop outing includes stops in major North American cities including Indianapolis, Toronto, Columbia, Charlotte, Tampa, Atlanta, Houston, Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle, Detroit, St. Louis, and more.
The co-headlining excursion begins on June 27 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus and concludes two and a half months later on Sept. 10 in Camden, New Jersey at the BB&T Pavilion. The full list of tour dates can be found here.
