Blink-182 announced that they are cancelling their mini-tour this fall since drummer Travis Barker’s health has not improved.

Over the past few months, Barker has been sidelined after being admitted to the hospital for blood clots, a staph infection, and then was hospitalized again after being involved in a car crash with a bus. Many of their shows on the “Kings of the Weekend” Las Vegas residency were rescheduled.

“Trav’s medical team anticipated that he would be well enough by fall to tour but after recent checkups they were not able to clear him in time for the scheduled run of dates,” the band said in a statement.

Barker explained that he has been waiting for doctors to clear him so he could get back on the road, but the “risks associated with drumming are still too great.”

“I am doing everything I need to do so I can get back on the road as soon as possible,” Barker said. “I want to thank my fans, family, friends and bandmates for all the love and support.”

The mini-tour was supposed to kick-off on September 12 in Moorehead, Minnesota, and run through September 25. Cancelled dates include shows in Ohio, Michigan, Ontario, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Iowa. The band was also slated to headline Chicago’s Riot Fest on September 14, which has also been called-off. State Champs, a pop-punk group, was supposed to open the show.

Tickets will be refunded per point of purchase to the mini-tour. However, the “Kings of the Weekend” residency is still going to continue as planned, beginning on October 26 at Vegas’ Pearl Theater.

Check out the cancelled dates and upcoming Vegas shows below.
