Travis Barker’s Health Issues Have Forced blink-182 To Postpone Their Vegas Shows
Ooof. It sounds like poor ol’ Travis Barker has been having a hard time of it recently. blink-182 were forced to postpone two dates of their Kings of the Weekend Las Vegas residency shows this weekend due to Travis’ health issues, and now it looks like fans are going to have to wait until July to get to see them in Sin City.
Travis posted the following note from his doctor on his Snapchat:
“Travis Barker has developed thrombophlebitis in his bilateral upper extremities as well as cellulitis, treated appropriately with antibiotics and anti-coagulants, his condition should improve over the next few weeks. If untreated or exacerbated, this condition could result in severe adverse effects. Due to the strenuous nature of Mr. Barker’s performances, I have advised him to temporarily discontinue all performing through July 1, 2018. At that time, he will be re-evaluated by his physicians to see if he can resume performing.”
Blood clots in both arms and a staff infection wasn’t the news I was hoping for. I’ll be back soon, thanks for all the love & prayers 🙏🏻— Travis Barker (@travisbarker) Sat Jun 16 04:37:17 +0000 2018
