Blink-182 has just announced a massive global tour. Barker’s NFTs are being hustled, plus they are putting out some new tunes. Their music is also being reimagined for crypto enthusiasts.
Travis Barker, Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge are back together for the first time in 10 years. Planning a massive tour, the worldwide trek will cover ground in Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, North America, and Europe. It will start in March 2023 and run through until February 2024.
Fans seem unusually excited.
The Blink-182 tour will also include a performance at Lollapalooza (alongside Billie Eilish and Drake). And they will perform at the ‘We Were Young’ festival (alongside Green Day.)
While this may be exciting for fans, there is something more exciting for those who like Blink-182 AND crypto.
An artist and crypto enthusiast called Lil Bubble has remodeled a famous Blink 182 song into an ode about the miseries of the bear market.
The song can be seen on his criminally underrated YouTube channel. The YouTube space is dedicated to rewriting famous pop songs into tales of shitcoins and other crypto subjects.
Other redesigned hits on the channel include Forever Long.
Drummer of Blink-182 Travis Barker has recently shot to even higher levels of fame by getting snuggly with one of the Kardashians. Barker and Kourtney Kardashian married in May of this year with a religious wedding in Italy.
While on the crescendo of heightened exposure, it seemed a good time to repump the Blink-182 card with a tour.
Blink-182 and NFTs
Barker is no stranger to Web3. Recently, he collaborated with Limewire to launch an NFT collection. Limewire was a former peer-to-peer file sharing platform that was used to share pirated music between friends. It has now relaunched as an NFT marketplace. At the launch, Limewire announced that the first digital collectibles on the site were from Barker.
