    I’m going to nitpick here…but Sublime is not performing. Sublime as a band ended when their former lead singer, Bradley Nowell, died in 1996; the remaining members, plus their new frontman, performed as Sublime starting in 2009 when they reformed, until the estate of Nowell sued the band later that year for trademark infringement.

    They now perform as “Sublime with Rome”. That is their full name.
