blink-182 fans in Mexico City will have to wait a little longer to see the pop-punkers on tour.

The band was slated to play four nights at Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City, however, after the first gig on April 2, the group had to call-off the second show after frontman Mark Hoppus came down with severe bronchitis. While the band had hoped to perform the final two shows, they had to cancel the remaining shows as Hoppus’ condition worsened.

Hoppus sent a message to fans on Discord, writing that “we don’t take canceling lightly” and “we know people booked flights, hotels, made plans, got babysitters,” however, “our band and crew are sick.”

“We had multiple lengthy (girthy) discussions all morning within the band, with the promoters, managers, we tried moving the date, tried every possible solution, but this is the reality,” Hoppus said. “We appreciate your understanding and support.”

Hoppus reportedly consulted with doctors in Mexico, and then while back home, he was told he had “an acute infection in my throat and severe bronchitis” and “got on meds immediately.”

While the band first arrived on the scene in the late ’90s, garnering attention with smash-hits like “All The Small Things,” “What’s My Age Again?” and “I Miss You,” the band was in limbo a few times. In 2023, they returned with the single “Edging,” followed by their ninth studio album, One More Time…
