The drummer’s appearance was brief: As Landon chatted and looked at fans’ comments as they rolled in, the Blink-182 drummer gave his 17-year-old son a hooded sweatshirt. Barker did not make any comments pertaining to his recent emergency.
The pop-punk trio announced the postponement of three concert dates in Scotland and Ireland on Sept. 1 via their social media accounts.
“Due to an urgent family matter, Travis has had to return home to the States. The Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin shows are being postponed,” the band — which also consists of Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus — wrote. “More information in regards to his return to Europe and rescheduled dates will be provided as soon as available.” (A spokesperson for the group had not returned Billboard‘s request for additional information.)
Barker has not yet addressed why he rushed home.
The drummer is currently expecting a child — a baby boy — with wife Kourtney Kardashian, who announced her pregnancy with a “Travis I’m Pregnant” sign during Blink’s Los Angeles tour stop at BMO Stadium. Barker is also father to Landon and Alabama Barker, as well as stepdad to Atiana de la Hoya, all of whom he shared with ex-wife Shanna Moakler.
