The Red Hot Chili Peppers aren't the only band celebrating a big musical milestone this year. Blink-182's iconic third album (first with Travis Barker) Enema of the State also turned 20 this month. Last week, the pop punk veterans announced they'd be celebrating the anniversary by performing the album in its entirety on every date of their summer co-headlining tour with Lil Wayne. Sadly, founding member Tom DeLonge will not be associated with the anniversary shows, but his replacement Matt Skiba will take his parts. Check out the full list of tour dates here.
