Travis Barker's Medical Issues Force Blink-182 To Cancel Fall 2018 Tour

September 6, 2018

It would seem that Travis Barker's medical issues are a lot more serious than we thought. Because according to a statement released by Blink-182 and Barker, the band has decided to cancel their Fall 2018 tour.

"Trav’s medical team anticipated that he would be well enough by fall to tour but after recent checkups, they were not able to clear him in time for the scheduled run of dates," the band said in a statement. Barker was diagnosed with blood clots, blood infection, and inflamation in both of his arms over the summer of 2018, and has forced the band to cancel other previous dates.

"“The past few months have just sucked as I have been sidelined just waiting for my doctors to clear me so I could get back on the road and perform with my band," Barker said in the statement. "Unfortunately, the risks associated with drumming are still too great."

Tickets for their shows are available for refund and Blink-182 have also cancelled their performances at upcoming music festivals and The Surf Ranch Pros, World Surf League, though Social Distortion have stepped in as the headliners for the event.
