Mark Hoppus Comes Out As A Taylor Swift Fan During Blink-182 Show

Blink-182, with their original lineup, including Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus, and Travis Barker, are currently navigating their highly anticipated world tour. On the band’s May 9 performance, a surprise twist occurred that elicited both shock and delight from the audience.

The band momentarily diverted from their iconic setlist to pay homage to Taylor Swift. During the closing performance of ‘Dammit,’ Hoppus seamlessly transitioned into the chorus of Swift’s 2012 chartbuster, ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.’

The unexpected musical crossover unfolded at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, a city that is one stop among many on Blink-182’s North American reunion tour. The audience, initially anticipating the familiar chords and lyrics of ‘Dammit,’ were instead treated to Hoppus’ rendition of the Swift classic.

This came as a pleasant surprise to fans, who took to social media to share their excitement and to post fan-captured footage of the unexpected moment. Following their North American tour, the pop-punk trio is slated to extend their global presence with performances in the EU and the UK. Subsequent destinations include Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and South America.
