LAS VEGAS — Blink-182 will have regularly scheduled shows in Las Vegas starting in May after agreeing to a residency at a theater at the Palms casino-resort.

The “pop-punk” band and the parent company of the casino-resort, Station Casinos, on Monday announced the series of shows.

Palms general manager Jon Gray says the band is the “perfect fit for a true rock residency” at the property’s Pearl Concert Theater.

The venue can accommodate 2,500. Tickets for the 16 shows scheduled for this year go on sale Friday.

The residency is one of many pieces of the Palms’ $620 million overhaul, which also includes a 29,000-square-foot nightclub, a day club, and restaurants in partnership with celebrity chefs Bobby Flay, Michael Symon and Marc Vetri.

The property is west of the Las Vegas Strip.
