Blink-182 Announces They're Postponing Latin American Tour Dates

Sad news for Blink-182 fans.

The band – featuring members Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker, and Mark Hoppus – was set to hit the road for a new tour starting on March 11 at the Imperial GNP festival in Tijuana, Mexico and then would travel across Latin America through April.

However, on Wednesday (March 1), Tom announced that the band had to postpone their shows for the foreseeable future.

Tom revealed that the band had to postpone their tour as Travis recovers from surgery after severely injuring his finger during rehearsals in early February.

“I’m so sorry to everyone in South America that we couldn’t be down there. This is something that we have been aiming to do for so long, and we worked so hard, and we just kind of had one of those freak accidents that nobody saw coming,” Tom shared in a video posted to Travis.

“Travis needs to go in and have surgery on his finger, and we have to get that well, and we have to get that strong before we can do anything else,” Tom continued. “This is just so sad. These were the biggest shows we ever played, these are some of the most important places in the world for a band. This was like the pinnacle of our career, was coming down and playing for you guys, so I really want you all to know that we’re devastated.”

Tom concluded his message by reassuring fans that they will return to all of the venues that they have to skip.

“We’re gonna get Travis better, and were gonna come down, the three of us, together, and we’re gonna rock and we’re gonna have an incredible time with you guys,” Tom said. “This is not something that we could even have saw coming… but we love you, Blink 182 loves you, and we will see you soon.”

We wish Travis a speedy recovery.
