Reunited Californian punks Blink 182 showed their appreciation for the Leeds leg of the rock weekender during their 90 minute headline set, bassist Mark Hoppus declaring, "We've not played there yet but I can already say Leeds kicks the shit out of Reading."
In a chatty mood, Hoppus and vocalist Tom DeLonge messed around constantly during opening songs such as 'Dumpweed' and 'Feeling This', proving they have not matured at all in the five years since they last took to a stage.
'What's' My Age Again' saw Tom burping and shaking his bum, while Hoppus introduced classic track 'Stay Together For The Kids' as, "A sad one so put your bangs down like you're an emo kid."
DeLonge's constant drivel between and even during songs lead bassist Mark to whip the crowd into a mass chant of "Shut the fuck up, Tom!"
The pair's banter for 'All The Small Things' enjoyed the greatest laugh of the night as they thanked Jedward for letting them cover "their" track.
Tattooed drummer Travis Barker meanwhile took a back seat saying little, but not to be outdone it was a seat that rose 10 foot in the air atop his drum riser whilst spinning for his awesome encore-opening drum solo.
"This next song is our last," and with that and a stunning rendition of ‘Dammit’, the whirlwind of toilet jokes, burping and classic singalong pop punk was all done. Brilliant.
