Blink 182 Reunion - Flying Travis- 07.21.09

travis0.jpg It’s kind of surreal how everything comes around ~ loved Blink 182 as a kid ~ and it turns out Mark Hoppus is a fan of NOTCOT ~ and when he invited me to their friends and family show tonight before they kick off the big reunion tour, i couldn’t say no! And it was awesome! 1) it was totally amazing to go to such an intimate show 2) i got to play with my big camera in a concert! 3) when they had travis AND his drum kit literally flying around over the stage at impossible angles while he played a hell of a drum solo… it was just stunning. So first things first, check out the pics of Travis’ flying solo, and a snippet of a video of it too on the next page. Totally mind blowing…



As you can see from the video ~ he literally got lifted off the stage ~ up… up… and up and then twisted at crazy angles… all i could think while it was happening was… wow anniversary of the moon landing. Also… i could FEEL it all coming up through the floor and pulsating through my body.

Wow, Awesome pics! Great Band, Great Drummer, and Great Photography, really captured this excellently.

----- Sigmund 23.07.09 19:57

Without a doubt, Travis is one of the greatest drummers ever! Kudos to the photograher - they are spectacular! And a sly high five to all the techies involved in rigging that contraption up! Great effort!
Cheers,

Awwwwww, guys - it always confuses me when people criticize what i put on my personal blog. Just seems strange? And perhaps if i get to photograph tommy lee doing it with that lighting and a fun camera that’d make it up here too!

Tommy Lee has been doing these kind of stunts for decades, before anyone. Jean you usually post great entries here. I don’t understnad how this fits into the NOTCOT world. JMHO

*tear* I’m so glad they are back together… Blink was my very first concert back in the day!

----- Macy 21.07.09 11:01

not a fan of them, but the drummer for slipknot has been doing that for years at their shows. blink completely ripped off their act.

----- A Dub 21.07.09 08:30

How nuts! I never thought I’d see Blink 182 doing that.

Great photos. You really captured the moment!

awesome band but its not like Travis is doing anything new here… Tommy Lee is still the king of drum acrobatics.

----- JC 21.07.09 06:26

Wow… Awesome pictures! Blink is my absolute favorite band, and Travis is one of the drummers around. All I can say is I wish I could be there. Well, there is always the Irvine show in September…I guess I’ll have to wait! Thanks for the pics!

----- Kristiano 21.07.09 06:12
