Blink-182 have revealed that drummer Travis Barker is suffering from blood clots in both arms. As a result, the band have been forced to cancel their Las Vegas residency dates this weekend.
The group commented:
“Friends, Travis Barker is suffering from blood clots in both arms and unfortunately cannot perform until cleared to do so by his medical team. The situation is currently being closely monitored. Due to this situation it is with great regret that the blink-182 ‘Kings of the Weekend’ Las Vegas residency dates this weekend must be rescheduled. New dates will be posted on the bands website shortly. If you are not able to attend the rescheduled dates, refunds will be available at point of purchase.”
Barker himself added:
“Drumming is my life and It kills me that I can’t perform for you guys this weekend. I hope to be back as soon as I can.”
