They gave a reason for the move and announced who’s playing instead.

blink-182 have cancelled a number of upcoming shows, including their headlining set at Riot Fest Chicago and their State Champs / Seaway / American Authors-supported tour. 

In a statement, the band cite Travis Barker’s medical issues – he has not been cleared by his doctor for the upcoming dates, unfortunately.
