Fans react to Blink-182’s “incredible” comeback show at Coachella 2023

The band's classic line-up played the delayed first show of their reunion tour at the festival on Friday

Fans have reacted to Blink-182‘s comeback set at Coachella 2023 on Friday (April 14), their first since they reunited with Tom DeLonge.

On the first day of the festival, the band played a 50-minute set of hits after they were confirmed as a last-minute addition the day before the show.

The show came as the first of the band’s comeback tour, which was postponed after drummer Travis Barker suffered repeated injuries to a finger.


During the set, the band played ‘Feeling This’, ‘What’s My Age Again?’, ‘The Rock Show’, ‘I Miss You’, ‘All The Small Things’ and other hits, alongside recent single ‘Edging’.

In the field in Indio, California and on the festival’s livestream, fans reacted to the “incredible” experience of seeing the trio back together again.

“An absolutely incredible experience watching these three back on stage together,” one fan wrote. “Wish I was there. So happy for them.”

Another said of their returning frontman: “I’m so glad you’re back Tom.”


“Blink-182 absolutely killed it at Coachella!” another fan tweeted after the set. “Just watched their whole set and it was PERFECTION!”
