The band released a statement on Twitter addressing Barker’s condition. “Friends, Travis Barker is suffering from blood clots in both arms and unfortunately cannot perform until cleared to do so by his medical team,” the statement reads. “The situation is currently being closely monitored.”
“Due to this situation it is with great regret that the Blink-182 ‘Kings Of The Weekend’ Las Vegas residency dates this weekend must be rescheduled.”
