Blink-182 to Tour Without Travis Barker
Blink-182 will tour without drummer Travis Barker.
The rocker confirmed he won't be able to join the band in Australia in February 2013 due to his fear of flying, which stems from his narrow survival of a plane crash in 2008 which left four people dead.
"'Had a blast playing The Eden Project, St. Austell, UK! Thank you (sic)" he wrote on Twitter.
A fan replied, "Hey, there's this place called Australia that would love to see you guys too... (sic)"
Referring to his bandmates, the rocker responded, "Mark and Tom will be there in Feb of next year but with a fill in drummer cause I don't fly. Sorry brotha (sic)."
Travis recently said he is doing his best to overcome his fear for the sake of his children and band mates Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge.
