Blink-182 have cancelled a number of North American tour dates after drummer Travis Barker had to undergo an emergency operation. The pop-punks are rescheduling a small number of the dates, but have pulled the vast majority as Barker needs an urgent tonsillectomy. According to a statement on the band's official website, his recovery period "is expected to extend beyond the scheduled tour dates".
