Blink-182 has postponed the first leg of its highly anticipated reunion tour after hard-hitting drummer, Travis Barker, broke his finger not once, but twice during tour rehearsals.
“Travis needs to go in and get surgery on his finger and we have to get that well and we have to get that strong before we can do anything else,” frontman Tom Delange said in a video on social media sharing the South America tour has been canceled. “This is just so sad,“ he added.

Barker shared about his injury with fans in early February through Twitter with a graphic picture saying “ he smashed his finger so hard he dislocated it and tore the ligaments.”
The tour was set to begin on March 11 in Tijuana. Tom and Company did not inform when they will be able to get back on the roach, but he says TB has to get well again before they can perform as a troupe. He also apologized to ticket buyers and promises to update them in the near future.
