Sad news for the members of Blink-182. The band announced yesterday that they will be cancelling all their May 2012 tour dates due to drummer Travis Barker's emergency tonsillectomy.
"Blink-182’s drummer, Travis Barker, required an urgent tonsillectomy with a recovery period expected to extend beyond the scheduled tour dates," a message read of the Blink-182's website. "The band apologizes for any inconvenience as a result of these cancellations and thanks their fans for their ongoing support."
All of the concert dates, which span across the East Coast, have been cancelled and will not be rescheduled, except for the May 10 and 11 performances at Winstar Casino in Thackerville, Okla., which have been rescheduled for Sept. 13 and 14.
Tom Delonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis were set to perform at The Bamboozle Festival in Asbury Park, N.J. on May 19, alongside other acts like the Foo Fighters and Bon Jovi, but have been forced to pull out due to Travis' illness.
Refunds will be offered for all ticket holders, minus those attending Bamboozle.
Get well soon, Travis!
