It can’t be said that Linkin Park and Blink 182 don’t have a sense of humor. Actually, we’re not surprised about Blink, as they are the band that made an album called Take off Your Pants and Jacket. Linkin Park, on the other hand, always seem so serious. However, in a new clip for Funny or Die, both bands show off their comedic chops in announcing they’ll be playing two co-headlining stadium dates in New York and Hershey, PA. The “Welcome to Blinkin Park” tour will find them joined by the Wu Tang Clan in New York, with Machine Gun Kelly opening both shows. We knew that Linkin Park would be announcing NYC and Pennsylvania shows in addition to their previously announced headlining run earlier this week, and now we’ve got details.
The clip shows a Tinder date taking place, with the male bringing Blink along with them and the female bringing Linkin Park. The two give date advice to their respective people, and it seems to work out. Blink 182’s song “First Date” is even referenced. As far as the shows, you’ll be able to get them on pre-sale next Tuesday (9) at presale.linkinpark.com, with general on sale starting May 12th.
The dates are as follows:
7/28 Flushing, NY @ Citi Field
7/30 Hershey, PA @ Hershey Park
