Busted Foot Sidelines Blink
Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has injured his foot, forcing the cancellation of the remainder of the band’s Australian tour as well as dates in Japan and Hawaii.
According to a post on the band’s official Web site, Barker suffered a fall while preparing for a concert in Adelaide March 12. He managed to play that night with a cast on his foot and a rearranged drum set, but the band returned to California the next day.
“I am seriously bummed that we couldn’t play for our fans in Australia, Japan and Hawaii,” Barker said. “It was just a freak accident. But it’ll heal and we’ll be back.”
They’re scheduled to be back in action by late April, when they hit Mexico for a couple of shows before embarking on a U.S. leg with Cypress Hill and Taking Back Sunday. The Blink-182/No Doubt co-headlining tour begins June 1.
