Times change. Punk kids grow up. Blink-182, one of the most successful, accessible bands in pop-punk history, have gone through a few life changes since forming in 1992. Co-founder and singer-guitarist Tom DeLonge is no longer with the group, replaced by Matt Skiba. Drummer Travis Barker has recovered from the 2008 plane crash that resulted in 16 surgeries (and talk of a foot amputation, which did not happen, fortunately). Singer-bassist Mark Hoppus is holding steady, delivering fan favorites such as “What’s My Age Again” at concerts along with energetic new cuts such as “Bored to Death.”

7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, Taco Bell Arena, 1401 Bronco Lane, Boise. $25-$75. Ticketmaster. Opening: A Day To Remember, All American Rejects, DJ Spider.
