Provavelmente os próximos shows do blink-182 terão de ser adiados 😞 pic.twitter.com/fjK0J8zbKk
The band are scheduled to continue the European leg of their long-awaited worldwide reunion tour starting next Monday (October 2) at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal.
There's no word yet on whether Barker's COVID-19 status will impede the concerts. However, they already had to postpone an early set of shows in the UK and Ireland due to the drummer's return to the US for wife Kourtney Kardashian's successful emergency fetal surgery. And, of course, that was after Barker dislocated his finger — and had to undergo surgery — in rehearsals.
