BEAUTY SCHOOL DROPOUT
ROCKET MORTGAGE FIELDHOUSE
CLEVELAND, OHIO | MAY 16, 2023

For many parents last night's rock show was nostalgic and for their kids that attended with them, it was likely a night of enjoyable presentism. Confetti and pyro were utilized early to kick the party off as the recently reunited band of thirty years stopped in Cleveland to share the stage as the original lineup; together again for the first time since 2015... and it was "like riding a bike." The trio's chemistry was alive and well, like silly brothers hanging out and making everyone giggle at a family reunion. Fans smiled, danced and sang along to Blink's classic, catchy, memorable lyrics. Keeping the fast-tempoed, generally feel good pop-punk genre thriving, the now multi-generational band is expected to release a new album soon, as their most recent song "Edging" continues to spin on radio stations. The 93-date World Tour runs through the middle of next year.
