Watch Mark Hoppus perform for the first time since his cancer battle [Video]

Mark Hoppus has performed live for the first time since revealing he was cancer-free back in September.

Hoppus joined Blink-182 bandmate Travis Barker at Barker’s House of Horrors Halloween pay-per-view livestream at the weekend.

They were accompanied by Escape the Fate’s Kevin “Thrasher” Gruft on guitar, ripping through Blink-182 classics ‘What’s My Age Again?’, ‘The Rock Show’ and ‘Family Reunion’.

The gig coincided with the one-month mark since Hoppus confirmed he was cancer-free, after battling stage four diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

Prior to the performance, Barker was asked what it was like reuniting with Hoppus after his successful chemotherapy treatment.

“Mark doing this and us playing a few songs is just incredible,” Barker said.

“I’ve been with him through this whole process and he’s just been so strong and resilient and tough, and I just told him, ‘Elbows up and fight’, you know? It’s time to fight. And he did. It’s awesome.”

Peter M. Riedell, MD, University of Chicago Medicine, Chicago, IL, shares updates from the Phase III ZUMA-7 trial (NCT03391466) of the anti CD19 axicabtagene ciloleucel (axi-cel), a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy in patients with relapsed/refractory (r/r) large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL). A superior event-free survival and overall survival were reported in the axi-cel arm and the findings corroborate with data from the Phase III TRANSFORM trial (NCT03575351), demonstrating the potential of CAR T-cell therapy as a second-line option for LBCL. This interview took place at the 63rd ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition congress in Atlanta, GA.
