Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus has delivered his first live performance since his announcement that he’s cancer-free.
The bassist and vocalist joined his bandmate Travis Barker on stage alongside Kevin “Thrasher” Gruft for the performance. The trio took to the stage at Barker’s House of Horrors pay-per-view broadcast over the weekend.
While decked out in Batman outfits, Mark Hoppus and co. performed Blink-182’s “What’s My Age Again?,” “The Rock Show” and “Family Reunion.” The only other time Hoppus performed live during his treatment was when he hosted a show on Twitch.

Back in June, Mark Hoppus revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer. Hoppus took to Twitter to break the news and reveal that he had been undergoing chemotherapy.
“For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer,” Hoppus writes. “I have cancer. It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this. I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive. Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all.”
At the end of September, Mark Hoppus officially announced that he is cancer-free. He received the good news after visiting his oncologist.
“Just saw my oncologist and I’m cancer free!!” Mark Hoppus wrote in the post. “Thank you God and universe and friends and family and everyone who sent support and kindness and love. Still have to get scanned every six months and it’ll take me until the end of the year to get back to normal but today is an amazing day and I feel so blessed. Can I get a W in the chat?”
