The band put the new multi-million dollar sound system to the test, performing hit songs from their nearly 25-year history including “What’s My Age Again,” “First Date,” and “Dammit,” as well as songs from the band’s seventh studio album California, where the track “Kings of the Weekend” also serves as the name of the residency.

The band, with Mark Hoppus (vocals/bass), Travis Barker (drums), and Matt Skiba (guitar), seemed to have a lot of fun interacting with the audience and at one time even mentioning the Stanley Cup-bound Vegas Golden Knights.
