     Tom DeLonge, blink-182's guitarist, is looking forward to playing at
 smaller venues during the Civic Tour:  "That [performing in smaller venues] is
 just what we started off doing and that was so much a part of what our band
 was about ... it's a fun thing for us to be able to do again."
     Honda selected the Southern California band, featuring Mark Hoppus
 (bass/vocals), DeLonge (guitar/vocals) and Travis Barker (drums), to power the
 first leg (v.2001.1) of the inaugural Civic Tour.  The Civic Tour is Honda's
 latest venture into the music arena and is an integral part of its coordinated
 marketing efforts to introduce the completely redesigned 2001 Honda Civic to
 the contemporary youth market.
