A bus-related injury forces the punk-poppers to cancel a string of dates...

BLINK-182 have been forced to cancel dates on their Australian tour due to injury.

Drummer Travis Barker broke his foot getting off a bus in Melbourne, and is unable to play, reports the Undercover site.

The band honoured Saturday’s (March 13) show at Adelaide Entertainment Centre with Barker playing in a cast, but had to abandon last night’s show at Perth Rock-it festival, with Australian act Grinspoon stepping in.

Shows scheduled for March 16-18 at Sydney Hordern Pavilion and March 19 at Brisbane Entertainment Centre are affected, with an announcement regarding re-scheduled dates expected soon.
