UK Blink 182 tour 'going ahead as planned'
The UK and European leg of the Blink 182 tour 2012 will still go ahead, despite the band having to cancel their US dates.
They were forced to pull out of their scheduled May performances across the Atlantic after drummer Travis Barker had to undergo an urgent tonsillectomy.
However, Blink 182 tickets are still available for the planned British and European shows.
The band will play at the NIA in Birmingham on June 7th before heading to London for two dates at the O2 on June 9th and 13th.
They will then head to Belfast, Manchester, Birmingham again, Sheffield, Newcastle, Glasgow, Bournemouth, Cornwall, Cardiff and Nottingham.
Finally, the tour will conclude at Liverpool's Echo Arena on July 12th.
It seems Barker is well on the road to recovery, as he recently posted an image of his drum kit on Instagram, accompanying the picture with the caption: "1st day back hittin' gettin' my chops back since my surgery."
