The Blink 182 reunion tour has been forced to cancel a string of live dates this month due to a medical emergency involving drummer Travis Barker. “Blink 182’s drummer, Travis Barker, required an urgent tonsillectomy with a recovery period expected to extend beyond the scheduled tour dates,” read a note on their official site. “The band apologizes for any inconvenience as a result of these cancellations and thanks their fans for their ongoing support.
” Though two upcoming dates at the Winstar Casino in Thackerville, OK have been rescheduled for September 13 and 14, the other six dates on their itinerary will not be rescheduled. Those dates include: » 5/15 — Rochester, NY @ Blue Cross Arena » 5/17 — Manchester, NH @ Verizon Wireless Arena » 5/18 — Uncasville, CT @ Mohegan Sun » 5/19 — Asbury Park, NJ @ The Bamboozle » 5/20 — Bethlehem, PA @ Sands Bethlehem Event Center » 5/22 — Quebec City, CA @ Colisee Pepsi Arena Refunds will be available for each show at the point of purchase, except for the Bamboozle gig, where no refunds are being offered. New Jersey natives My Chemical Romance have stepped into the breach and will take over Blink’s headlining slot at the May 19 Bamboozle gig. “Blink-182 will be greatly missed, and all of us here with Travis a speedy recovery,” the show’s promoters said in a statement about what would have been Blink’s debut Bamboozle appearance. Other acts on this year’s three-day Bamboozle roster include: Foo Fighters, Skrillex, Bon Jovi, Gaslight Anthem, Mac Miller, Incubus and DJ Pauly D. The band is slated to kick-off a two-month European tour in June and at press time Blink’s Facebook page said those shows have not been affected.
