The guys of Blink-182 took a moment during Saturday night's concert to pay tribute to their friend DJ AM, who was found dead in his Manhattan apartment at the age of 36 on Friday.

"This night is really hard for the three of us," a choked-up Mark Hoppus explained to the crowd. "We lost a dear friend yesterday."

About AM, Mark stated, "He was an innovator and he was a genius... but above all, he was an amazing friend."

Of course, not even a year ago, Blink drummer Travis Barker and DJ AM were both hospitalized after a plane they were in crashed, killing four other people on board.
