Just when you thought life couldn’t get any better for Adrian Young of No Doubt and Travis Barker of Blink-182, check out these travel plans: The pair will be cohabitating the stage for a bunch of nights this summer as their bands tour the U.S. together.
While each group is perfectly capable of headlining on their own, this tour will be different, as the bands are sharing top billing. Besides giving great value for the fans, their close relationship provides a major cure to the pains of touring — by having more fun together offstage, Young, Barker and their cohorts are even better prepared to deliver onstage.
We were able to catch up with these two drumming maniacs only by conferencing them on cell phones as they each raced around Los Angeles. Young is cruising down one freeway with his baby on board. Barker seems to be the sole occupant of his vehicle.
