Update: Blink-182 are going on tour with Lil Wayne in 2019.
Travis Barker’s health issues put a hold on Blink-182’s summer plans, as the venerable pop punk outfit had to postpone a residency at Las Vegas’ Pearl Theater after the drummer was afflicted with blood clots in his arms. Now, however, it looks like the band is ready to make up for lost time, as they’ve not only announced a new batch of fall shows but also rescheduled their residency dates.

On September 12th, the band will begin a short trek that includes a number of Midwest and West Coast dates, as well as their planned stop at this year’s Riot Fest in Chicago. Albany pop punk outfit State Champs will join the band on a handful of the dates.
The residency will recommence shortly after the tour’s final stop in Council Bluffs, Iowa, with Blink kicking off four weekends at the Pearl on October 26th.
Barker, it seems, is healed up and ready to go. Last night, he posted a picture of himself brandishing some drumsticks on his Facebook page.
