holy shit that is cool. hope someone gets it and rips it. apparently the bootleg already exists in some circles according to some quick googling. according to this article, the "snowballs" on the tape is in reference to a snowball fight mark and tom started with the audience. there's some great photos of that show here too.

also, here's a short and sweet mtv news article promoting that show: http://www.mtv.com/news/1426209/rancid-blink-182-to-play-board-stiff-in-seattle/

Wow. We have all seen those old pictures of Mark smoking pot, so this is the bootleg from that show! That's awesome.

It costs a lot and I don't know if there are still avid collectors out there who are willing to pay that price for a bootleg but I do hope someone buys it and rips it.

i was at that show. have several flyers from it. it's the show that my GF's lip got cut on the barricade. after the show we were backstage hanging out, and tom was super apologetic about it. he wrote on the back of a flyer, "sorry about the lip - tom blink" (which is the first time i ever saw him sign something "tom blink."

updated this with every poster @Thibaut182 and @daveyjones added, thanks for those, since many provide new tour dates. would be nice one day to get this forum running with an "on this day" feature, since i'm sure most of the days of the year are represented over this timeline, some more than once. for all of those posters, i backed them up with archive.org links.

i also updated more recent events on part two of the timeline, with cali deluxe and whatnot (but no one cares about that lol!).

updated once again with tour dates from the reunion tour in 2009/2010, and scattered things here and there from that time (studio updates). what a shit time to be a fan back then huh? "we're starting to work on the album"/"we haven't started yet"/"coming soon, this year!"/"no, next year." i know mark was just as disappointed with tom's inactivity as we were, but i guess a lot of us didn't expect what was to come with california.

my hope is to get the 2003/2004 tour dates filled in sooner or later, and then, as far as i know, that might be the complete tour history (aside from random mid-90s dates here and there)
