Blink-182 performed an intimate acoustic show at Steve Aoki’s 40th Birthday, which also raised $500,000 for his foundation. Blink-182 can be heard performing songs such as “What’s My Age Again?” in which Mark Hoppus joked with Aoki by changing the lyrics from “Nobody likes you when you’re 23” to “Nobody likes you when you’re 40 Steve” and also performing “Bored To Death” at billionaire Ron Burkle‘s Green Acres Estate in Beverly Hills, California, for a roomful of about 100 guests including some very high profile guests such as: Tara Reid, Akon, Fred Durst, Ron English, DJ Kaskade and Aoki’s family members including his mom and nieces Olivia and Natalie. Also performing at this very special party was T-Pain.
During an auction for the Aoki Foundation guests at this intimate performance bid in $25,000 increments, and we heard that the birthday boy himself (Steve Aoki) kicked things off by putting up $50,000 of his own cash. At last year’s (2016) event raised, Aoki raised $250,000 for his foundation. The foundation started in 2012 aims to support organizations in the “brain science and research areas.”
