Watch Footage of the First blink-182 Show With Travis Barker

Check out the newly rediscovered video


Before he was one of the most acclaimed drummers of all time, Travis Barker was just the new guy in the band.

Newly rediscovered footage of Barker's first-ever appearance with blink-182 has been making the rounds on the internet.  The footage shows a less-heavily tattooed Barker, along with a baby-faced Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge during a 1998 show in Baltimore, MD. Barker joined the band just before this set, having replaced original drummer Scott Raynor.  

Barker is said to have learned the entire 20-song set just 45 minutes before the band performed.


Recently, Tom DeLonge has spoken of his intention to rejoin blink-182 at some point in the future, telling Kerrang!, "I get it – trust me, I love Blink and it’s given me everything in my life.  And, you know, I plan on doing it in the future."

Blink-182 recently released the new single, “Blame It On My Youth.” The band will tour with summer with Lil Wayne.
