You Won't Believe This Co-Headlining Tour

You may have seen it on social media, but there are two popular groups that are co-headlining a tour. What might those two groups be? Blink-182 and Lil Wayne. I had to check the date to make sure it wasn't an April Fool's joke, but let's dive into this.

Why this DOESN'T make ANY sense:
Need I say more? Lil Wayne and Blink-182 make completely different music. You have a rapper and then a rock/punk band. Besides Lil Wayne releasing Tha Carter V last year, both Lil Wayne and Blink-182 have been hiding in the shadows in recent years. I doubt this will be a major comeback for either of them, but it will be an interesting combination.

Why this DOES make sense:
Anyone that was born in the 90s and remembers late 90s/early 2000s music knows who these people are. You grew up on the music, you probably heard them on the radio, your friends might have talked about them, etc. If you ask anyone on the street who these people are, chances are they know who Lil Wayne and Blink-182 are.
Also, concerts don't always feature bands of the same genre. A lot of the opening acts usually differ from the genre of the headliner. Sometimes it might be a different subgenre and other times it might be a completely different genre (IE: space rock and vaporwave).

All in all, it will be interesting to see how this tour plans out. If you have the chance to go to one of the shows, let me know how it goes.

Thanks for visiting and remember to jam on!
