So Blink-182 is coming to the Sands Event Center in Bethlehem on Thursday, June 23, and also, Tom DeLonge would like you to know that he quit the band because he wanted to work on his projects related to extraterrestrials.
The tickets to the show are $59.50, it starts at 7 p.m., and their former bandmate is working on a series of books called “Sekret Machines.” The first volume, “Sekret Machines Book 1: Chasing Shadows,” is described as “a work of…fiction?” and it is about UFOs.
Blink-182 and their special guest, Hawthorne Heights, will play to a sold-out stadium this evening. On August 25, they’ll be playing the Pavilion in Scranton where tickets can reach from $28-$75+; on August 27, they’ll play Hersheypark Stadium, where tickets are currently ranging from $42-$80+. DeLonge, ex-guitarist-and-co-vocalist, will not be there, because, as he explained to Mic, he is working on a matter of national security: Aliens. (DeLonge doesn’t want us to call them “aliens,” as he explains in the interview, but for lack of a better term, that’s what we’re using.)
“I know of stuff I can’t talk about,” he says.
He is making allusions to the idea that he’s been working with government officials, taking down their stories about UFOs and other paranormal phenomena, and putting them into his “fiction?” books. In addition, he asserts that aliens have always been among us, and that alien technology has fallen at various points across the world. He comes across as drop-dead serious. Something tickles us about the idea of alien disclosure being effected by a guy from a rock band.
We don’t know about you guys, but we want to believe. God, do we want to believe.
