During practice sessions for the band’s upcoming tour, Blink-182’s drummer hurt his finger twice in less than a month. On the day of his procedure, Travis Barker seemed to be very uncomfortable. The frontman of Blink-182, age 47, shared images of his injured finger on Instagram on Monday.
A doctor was trying to realign his finger when his carousel started. They can be heard asking Barker if he feels pain. He answers, “I mean, yeah, it hurts.
He went on to show close-ups of his finger, one of which showed him with a brace on. He wrote “Surgery tomorrow” as the caption of the picture, so his suffering might soon end.
The comments section received encouragement from Barker’s wife, Kourtney Kardashian Barker. It’s his second injury in as many weeks and the most recent one. He tweeted on February 8 that he had dislocated his finger and torn ligaments while playing the drums during practice. “.
On Feb. 20, he published a snapshot of his knuckle on his Instagram Stories, indicating that it was bruised and hurt “again,” according to Billboard.
In August, Blink-182 shocked fans by announcing their first world tour with Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker, and Tom DeLonge since 2015.
Barker’s surgery comes after he was hospitalized last summer with “life-threatening” pancreatitis. He announced in July that he was “currently much better” as he updated his Instagram followers. “I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling terrific,” he said on Instagram. “But, shortly after dinner, I experienced tremendous pain and have been hospitalized ever since.
“During the endoscopy, a tiny polyp was removed in a highly delicate place, which professionals generally treat, and this tragically injured a crucial pancreatic drainage tube. This led in severe, potentially fatal pancreatitis.
“I am extremely grateful that I am now substantially better thanks to intense treatment,” Barker added. The Poosh creator thanked God for curing her husband, their fans’ prayers, and the specialists, doctors, and nurses at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for “taking such fantastic care” of them. The reunion tour will last nearly a year, beginning on March 11, 2023, at the Imperial GNP festival in Tijuana, Mexico, and continuing through early April, with North American shows from May through July, European shows from September through October, and a string of dates in Australia and New Zealand in February 2024.
