I believe it's a relatively new concept called 'subjectivity'...

I think it's Swedish

people can't really bitch Blink 182 is playing shows in markets that haven't seen this band in years, Hell Rochester they've never played its always Darien Lake (Buffalo) or Spac (Albany area) for people in Upstate NY. They've only played Syracuse once in 2001 so its nice to have a date thats a lot closer. They also don't play NH or Eastern connecticut area often either. They will be at every major city next bit tour they announce. This little run is just a way for them to reach out to fans in smaller areas before a big festival date.

They have a huge following and are solid support?

gross..get better opening bands for change

I know at least Mark has some really diverse and obscure tastes in music and they don't really need an opening act to sell out every show they play, so why not use it as a spotlight for smaller bands?

It's not like they took Manchester Orchestra and Matt And Kim out for an amphiteater tour or anything.

there are just so many great bands with good fanbases who could fill this slot. AAR does't really need/deserve this slot.

oh right right. But bands like AAR, Weezer, Fall Out Boy, etc, don't really need a spot headlining for Blink to make a name for themselves.
