Despite a tumultuous break-up, Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus, now in the band +44, will still perform songs from the blink-182 catalogue. Hoppus wrote on the band's MySpace blog, "For the past year-and-a-half we have been saying how +44 will never play blink-182 songs. In interviews, when people ask about it, we say it won't happen, we think it's lame, etc.
"Last week we changed our minds," Hoppus continued in the post. "And tonight (May 16) we played 'What's My Age Again.' You see, Travis and I LOVE our history with blink-182, and it seems a shame to let those songs sit dormant forever because of what happened two years ago.
"And that song is SO much fun to play. So why not?... It was awesome to play that song live again. We're having the time of our lives out here. See you at the shows."
