blink-182 postpones shows after drummer Travis Barker diagnosed with blood clots

blink-182 postponed a set of Las Vegas residency shows this weekend when it was discovered drummer Travis Barker had blood clots in each of his arms.

The band released a statement about the situation last week.

“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 statement read. “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.”

blink-182 scheduled a 16-date Las Vegas residency earlier this year to take place in May, June, September, and October. The band also has shows scheduled in Chicago and Windsor, Ontario in September.

Barker posted a message to his fans on social media Saturday, saying he also was dealing with a staph infection.

“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,” wrote Barker.
