Video: Blink-182 Plays First Concert Without Tom DeLonge

Ahead of their headlining gig at the Musink Music Festival, the band's Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker brought along Matt Skiba to their show at the Roxy in Hollywood on Wednesday, March 18.

AceShowbiz - Blink-182 has played their first show after kicking out Tom DeLonge out of the band. The group had Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba fill in for the former member during their gig at the Roxy in West Hollywood on Wednesday night, March 18.

The trio performed a total of 24 songs for the crowd, including hits like "Feeling This", "What's My Age Again?", "The Rock Show", "I Miss You", "Always" and "All the Small Things". They also delivered a live rendition of "Enema of the State" cut "Wendy Clear" for the first time in a decade and a cover of Misfits' "Skulls".

DeLonge, who founded Blink-182 with Mark Hoppus, finally departed the band earlier this year after their mates claimed he'd "indefinitely" quit and subsequently hired Skiba for an upcoming festival appearance.

Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker will perform again with Skiba on March 20 in San Diego before headlining the Musink Music and Tattoo Festival in Orange County, California on Sunday, March 22.

Meanwhile, DeLonge is now gearing up to release his solo album "To the Stars". The set is coming out on April 21.
