Blink-182 have been forced to cancel a number of their upcoming shows in Ireland, and the UK, due to an “urgent family matter”.

The band were set to kick off these run of shows in Glasgow’s OVO Hydro today (September 1), before playing in Dublin in Belfast next week.

However, these shows have been called off, with drummer Travis Barker forced to return home.

These shows which were originally announced back in October last year, were to see original Blink-182 bandmembers reunite for the first time since Tom DeLonge’s return to the band. 

Blink-182 Cancel Shows Due To “urgent family matter”

Confirming this news over their cancelled shows, Blink-182 shared this message on social media.

“Due to an urgent family matter, Travis has had to return home to the States”, the message read. “The Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin shows are being postponed. More information in regards to his return to Europe and rescheduled dates will be provided as soon as available”. 

Blink-182 still have shows scheduled for London, Birmingham and Manchester in October at the time of writing.

Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge had previously shared photos of the band’s arrival in Glasgow. See here.

Earlier this week, DeLonge had also stated that the next Blink-182 album is “only weeks (days) away”. The band had released standalone single ‘Edging’ last October.
