We are all musicians, and we get it. We've lived in a rank van on tour, slept in parking lots between shows, spent sleepless nights in the studio and have experienced the magic that happens onstage connecting with fans. We aren't just corporate dudes sitting in an office somewhere trying to slap someone’s logo on our product because we read a memo that said it was a good idea. We live and breathe the culture and lifestyle. We made it part of our entire brand—not just a marketing initiative.
"It'll be pretty fantastic," DeLonge says. "It won't be gigantic places. If there are any fans who want to see the band play, because it's been a couple years, this would be the place to do it. I suggest they follow the website [AngelsAndAirwaves.com], which we're going to be launching in a matter of weeks."
You and a guest can meet Blink 182 and Angels & Airwaves' Tom DeLonge in his music studio in Carlsbad, CA and own 22 pages of the original artwork of Mike Henry from the children's book Tom wrote, "The Lonely Astronaut On Christmas Eve," and take home an autographed guitar!
Tom DeLonge was recently a guest on the radio show "Coast to Coast AM", where he spoke about the weird world of rock and roll, his longstanding interest in UFOs, and his new website that he hopes will become a clearinghouse for paranormal news. Listen to it here.
