Blink-182 opened Coachella with a mesmerizing performance that blew the house down Friday ... and drummer Travis Barker was in fighting form with no signs of injury.
Trav and bandmates, Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus, stepped out onto the Sahara stage as the sun was setting for their jam-packed concert at the desert festival in Indio, CA. ... and the vibe was joyful for their first show in nine years as Trav hit the skins with everything he could muster.
I only paid for Twitter Blue so I could upload the entirety of Blink 182’s two-song finale at Coachella.— Caleb Turner (@calebturner23) April 15, 2023 @calebturner23
An absolutely incredible experience watching these three back on stage together. Wish I was there. So happy for them. pic.twitter.com/cFUAorMKIg
Of course, one of the main concerns everyone had was Trav's much-publicized hand injury. As you recall, Trav underwent surgery to repair his ring finger back in March and he posted gnarly photos of his injuries during his recovery.
Well, as it turned out, there wasn't a hint that Trav's finger was bothering him throughout the one-hour-plus show. And Trav and Co. never once brought up the issue, probably 'cause there wasn't one.
As for their set list, the band played many of their hit songs, such as “Girl at the Rock Show," “Feeling This," “All The Small Things,” “Miss You” and “What’s My Age Again?” The tunes all sounded great and, in between songs, there was the usual funny banter between Tom and Mark.

Trav's wife, Kourtney Kardashian, was also a main attraction. Donning dark sunglasses and a black feathered shawl with a hoodie, Kourtney stood on the side of the stage, proudly cheering on her husband and playing the role of number one fan.
After the lights dimmed post-performance, Trav walked off stage and got the warmest of receptions from Kourtney, who jumped right into his arms.
On a scale of 1 to 10, mark this performance a thousand!!
