Blink-182 Member Has Blood Clot Emergency


Blink-182 have announced that drummer Travis Barker has blood clots in both of his arms, forcing the postponement of shows in Las Vegas.

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.

“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.” – Travis Barker

Travis Barker has definitely dealt with his health challenges over the years, overcoming drug addiction and surviving a plane crash 10 years ago that left him badly burned, and ultimately led to Blink-182’s original members reconnecting for their reunion.

    I am very sorry to hear about this.

    And I do hope that Travis’s arms are soon feeling better.

    • Trovoid

      Me too. Travis has been through a lot since his 2008 plane crash. I really hope everything works out for him. Nobody should have to go through that kind of pain and trauma.

        No, no one should.
