[Review] Blink-182 And My Chemical Romance At The Hollywood Bowl October 8th 2011
The Honda Civic Tour featuring [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Blink-182[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]My Chemical Romance[/lastfm] came to an end this weekend at the Hollywood Bowl. They brought out awesome bands on this tour like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rancid[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Manchester Orchestra[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]H2O[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Matt and Kim[/lastfm]. Being a big fan of Blink, I wasn’t going to miss out on this. I was able to watch the very last show of this 10 week tour to a sold out crowd at the Hollywood Bowl.
I love the Hollywood Bowl. I think it is a great place to see a show. However, I hate all the traffic. Sure enough, I showed up a little bit later than I had hoped for. Don’t think I forgot about you dude who sold me my shuttle ticket. I did not appreciate you letting the shuttle go right after I bought my tickets, forcing my friend and I (who were the only 2 people there) to wait and extra 20 minutes.
We finally arrive and first things first, where is the beer? Large venues are so evil with their pricing, but its almost impossible to not get at least a few and today I didn’t want to think of my bank account.
As I walked around I checked out the Honda Civic bus and the car that Blink-182 designed for the tour. That car is pretty sweet.
