They allowed that on national tv? Wow- that is straight up awful in multiple ways lol

If you want a shock, go watch it on YT and read the comments. People are deluded.

Literally a whole minute of backing music and lights flailing about while Tom pretends to play along and the others just awkwardly stand about... as soon as the vocals come in he sounds like a dying cat.

hahahah I just LOLed at that moment even though I knew it was coming. It seriously looks/sounds like the entire performance EXCEPT for Tom's vocals are prerecorded. Yeesh.

I never want to hear a Tom-bot complain about blink's tiny amount of backing tracks again.  Rubin and Rubano are the only musicians here.

I can understand AVA having some synth stuff but full backing tracks is fucking gross, literally could've played the album and just given Tom a mic to do bad kareoke to it and it'd be the same experience. 

I hate it when blink do it, and I hate it here too.

Backing tracks for AVA have never bothered me, probably because I understand why they're using it. Blink on the other side have never needed it and that is why it's bothering me, if they would play the songs a bit faster but with backing tracks it probably would be better though, All time low have a tiny amount of backing tracks live and they sound fantastic and not that stale happening that is a blink concert today

lol it is super jarring when Tom starts singing. Doesn't match the song at all. Sounds like drunken karaoke ffs!

at least blink's add to the thickness of the live sound, WHILE Mark and Matt still play their respective parts. 

Tom doesn't even want to try to play guitar anymore, and David's is out of tune from the moment it kicks in, maybe it's a blessing they backing-tracked him out.

Have we already forgot about the time matt gave the guitar to a kid and nothing happened to the guitar that was playing in the PA?

It's still bullshit from both bands. The only thing you should have on a backing track is something you can't emulate live (like synth, if you don't have a dedicated performer for it, or a click track) and neither band needs to have literally the whole song. It's bullshit.

I would rather blink hire a guitarist and maybe keyboardist to play backing tracks. Green Day’s live shows sound so much fuller and complete compared to blinks.

This is why if Tom ever rejoins the band I hope Matt stays in. They could use another guitarist anyway.

But after hearing this gem I’m starting to rethink my position on Tom rejoining lol

Sum 41 had they're replacement guitarist continuing with the band when their original member returned. These are not the same situations though as Matt is a vocalist

Tbf both Mark and Tom have sounded pretty bad on TV in recent years. I was apprehensive about going to blinks last tour after hearing Mark at that show in Central Park but they both sound a lot better when you go see them in person.

Mark sometimes sounds a bit flat or like he's straining.....sometimes.

What Tom is doing here sounds like a parody or something.
