PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told I am not sure what to say about this one. I love a lot of the older Blink 182 stuff but I barely like or listen to any Rap at all and can’t really tell you what Lil Wayne is all about. I know that I see him discussed on TMZ a lot when I breeze through that program hoping to learn any Rock, Metal and Geek news. It’s not often but it does happen when they run out of Kardashian things to discuss. This could work out or it could be one of those shows where the Blink fans come late or early depending on when they play. Since this is a co-headlining tour, they might be switching off each and every night. What do you readers think about this tour.
