Blink 182's Travis Barker cannot perform due to blood clots in arms
Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker is suffering from blood clots in his arms, leading the band to postpone its ongoing Las Vegas residency.
The band announced the bad news on Twitter earlier this week, promising fans that they would reschedule the dates and provide refunds for those unable to attend.
“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,” the tweet began.
Barker, 42, 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.”
He followed up with a tweet from his personal Twitter account.
Blink 182 announced its residency in Vegas earlier this year, just weeks before its 16-show run kicked off at the Palms Casino Resort in late May.
On May 28, Barker was spotted showing off his drumming skills when he joined the Drumbots — the official drumline for the Las Vegas Golden Knights — to show his support for Sin City’s beloved hockey team before Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
