Blink-182 Abruptly Halts Tour As Travis Barker Rushes Home For Undisclosed Emergency

Blink-182 canceled the launch of their European tour Friday, citing that Travis Barker rushed home to handle an undisclosed emergency.

The band tweeted early Friday morning to notify fans of the abrupt change to their tour schedule.

“Due to an urgent family matter, Travis has had to return home to the States,” the band wrote. “The Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin shows are being postponed.” Details surrounding the emergency itself were not specified, but concern is growing for his wife, Kourtney Kardashian, who is pregnant with the couple’s first child and has not posted to social media since Thursday.

The band told fans that it would return with more information on upcoming shows and rescheduled dates at a later time, but offered no further insight.

“More information in regards to his return to Europe and rescheduled dates will be provided as soon as available,” the band wrote to Twitter.

Barker posted photographs of a prayer room to his Instagram story, hours before the band released its statement to social media. He also featured an image of a banner hanging on a door, which read, “Together we pray.”

The 47-year-old musician also featured a stained glass window that resembles a church window. (RELATED: Blink-182 Reunites With Tom DeLonge, Announces World Tour)

Kardashian has not surfaced on social media. Khloe and Kim Kardashian have also been notably absent from social media, compared to their usual posting frequency.

All eyes are on the family’s social media accounts as fans eagerly await updates on the situation.

This story continues to develop.
