Blink-182’s Travis Barker Is At Hospital With Infection ‘Complications’


After being released from an L.A. hospital on Monday, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has been readmitted due to complications from the blood clots found in both of his arms, PEOPLE confirms.

The legendary drummer is suffering staph infection and the skin infection known as cellulitis, in addition to the clots. Doctors are currently administering blood thinners to manage the latter condition. TMZ was first to report the news.

Blink-182 has postponed additional dates of the band’s Kings of the Weekend residency at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas.

“[Barker] has been ordered by the doctors to refrain from any activity that may cause further damage or cause the clots to travel,” the band said in a statement shared to their social media accounts on Tuesday. “As it stands now, he will be prevented from playing until the beginning of July when everything will be re-evaluated.”

Barker tweeted over the weekend, “Blood clots in both arms and a [staph] infection wasn’t the news I was hoping for. I’ll be back soon, thanks for all the love & prayers.”
