Barker, DJ AM Ring In New Year’s

Travis Barker and DJ AM will ring in the new year by making their first joint appearance since the South Carolina plane crash that nearly took both their lives.

The duo, appearing as TRVSDJAM, will headline New Year’s Nation’s Los Angeles New Year’s Eve party at The Lot in West Hollywood.

“I’m ready to get back on stage with AM and continue to rock the house,” Barker said in a statement. “I’m very excited to bring in the New Year in my hometown of L.A.”

The performance will be streamed live and broadcast at other New Year’s Nation events across the country.

Their last joint performance was Sept. 19 in Columbia, S.C. 19 – after which they boarded a private plane bound for Los Angeles that crashed on takeoff, killing four.
