Travis Barker Leaves Blink-182 Tour For ‘Urgent Family Matter’ Amid Kourtney Kardashian Pregnancy
Travis Barker doesn’t blink when it comes to prioritizing his family’s needs. The Blink-182 drummer, 47, has abruptly left his band’s European tour to be with loved ones. The group announced the news in a statement on their Instagram story on Sept. 1, telling fans that coming dates have been put on pause. “Due to an urgent family matter, Travis has had to return home to the States,” the post 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.” As of Friday morning, Travis had yet to address the situation directly but he did seem to encourage fans to join him in positive thinking. The rocker shared multiple photos from a prayer room on his Instagram story, hours before Blink’s statement went live. Travis’ news comes as he and wife Kourtney Kardashian await the arrival of their baby boy. The reality star, 44, announced her pregnancy during a Blink show in June, where she held up a sign that read “Travis I’m pregnant” – a callback to the music video for Blink’s 1999 song “All The Small Things.” The couple confirmed weeks later on Instagram that they are expecting a son.
