Blink-182 have been forced to cancel a number of US tour dates after drummer Travis Barker was forced to undergo an emergency operation to remove his tonsils.
The operation has affected a small number of US tour dates but is not expected to impact on any of Blink's forthcoming shows in the UK this Summer.
Two of Blink-182's dates at Winstar Casino in Thackerville, OK have been rescheduled whilst the remaining dates have been pulled entirely.
A statement written on the band's official website claims: "The band apologises for any inconvenience as a result of these cancelations and thanks their fans for their ongoing support." Adding that Barker's "recovery period (is) expected to extend beyond the scheduled tour dates."
Blink-182's UK tour is expected to kick off on June 7th at Birmingham's NIA.
