Predictions: What will happen with Blink 182 over the next 5 years?

Recommended Posts

Really not bothered, not interested in them carrying on without tom. To be honest this band died in 2005

Boooo!

they'll take up a 5 year residency in Las Vegas (maybe the MGM Grand) playing a greatest hits set 5 nights a week (+ 1 matinee show), switching in different Tom replacements every few months.

Maybe Sum41 will open for them XD

I don't know about 5 years time, but maybe an album with Matt early next year and touring for most of 2016. Maybe a few TV appearances if the singles are successful enough.


Then maybe just a few festival shows in late 2016 to early 2017. Then I think they'll probably have a break for a bit, Travis might do some solo album stuff or Transplants and Matt will do AK3 or Sekrets. AK3 will do some big tours due to Matts involvement with blink. I'm not sure what Mark would do, hopefully he works on a solo album or +44 for a late 2017/ early 2018 release.


 


Then from 2018- I think the success of the new blink album with Matt would determine how they decide to go forward with the band

Tom will just focus on Poet Anderson/ To the Stars projects which won't really get huge, but might develop a cult following at most if it is interesting enough?

He already has a cult. No one else will care.

Whoa 4 years later this is a pretty cool thread to revisit! Haha. Let's re-up this discussion, what does everybody think will happen in the NEXT 4-5 years as well?

heyyy i wasn’t far off haha.

at this point i see pretty much as i saw it then. cali was certainly way more successful than i anticipated. but i think they’ll put out this next record, probably recorded with a coterie of modern and hitmaking songwriters, and it’ll do just fine. there’ll be a radio-ready hit for the first single, and one that could have potential crossover potential. if that happens, then blink will get bigger and matt’s role in the band might be more solidified. if not, it’ll do decent numbers and they’ll tour and that’s it.

they may record another album. i’m not sure, it depends on the reception of this one. but if they do or don’t, i could still see tom rejoining in the next five years, maybe in 2024, for a 25th anniversary of EOTS tour

with their latest album, they’ll become a straight up pop band instead of a pop punk band—similar to the other bands in their genre (FOB etc)—and people will be mad and never move on. blink won’t care and will be happy because first and foremost they’ve always wanted to make popular music.

the album will do decently but not amazing for a band of their size and stature because music made by bands (as opposed to singers or rappers) is not on the upswing this decade.

tom won’t rejoin, and if he does, whatever project they’ll plan to do will have a billion delays and then essentially put the band on hiatus.

Yeah, basically.
