In a story shared on Instagram, the group revealed the Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin concerts would be rescheduled as more information becomes available regarding Barker’s situation and return. Details of what prompted his rush home were not disclosed.
Hours prior, Barker had posted religiously-themed photos from a prayer room, fueling fan speculation. The timing comes as the 47-year-old and wife Kourtney Kardashian recently revealed they are expecting their first child together.
The pregnancy announcement was incorporated into the band’s show last month when Kardashian held up a now-iconic sign referencing their 1999 music video. Weeks later, the happy couple celebrated with a tour-themed baby bash.
Barker shares three children from a previous marriage, while Kardashian has three kids of her own. As they prepare to expand their blended family, Barker’s situation underscores the priority of addressing private family matters outside the spotlight.
Fans wish the drummer and his loved ones the very best in resolving what prompted his cross-country dash home from tour. Blink-182 hopes to reschedule the postponed performances once Barker is able to rejoin his bandmates in Europe.
