For those of you who have had their tonsils taken out, I've heard the recovery sucks. Knock on wood, hasn't happened to me but it just happened to Travis Barker of Blink 182. Barker actually had to have an emergency tonsillectomy resulting in the band having to cancel 5 of their shows in May, which were a part of their 20th Anniversary tour.
The band was scheduled to perform on May 10 and May 11 in Thackerville, OK but those shows were able to be rescheduled for September 13 and September 14. The remaining North American tour dates have been canceled but not rescheduled (no word yet on if they will be). Also coming off their itinerary will be their appearance at this year's Bamboozle Festival. View the updated Blink 182 Tour Dates.
We wish Travis the best for a speedy recovery. For the full scoop, you can check out the band's website at the link above where they released a statement about the news.
If you want to catch Blink 182, they are headed across the pond in June. So you may need some frequent flyer miles to make that happen.
