Blink 182 Drops Off Bamboozle; MCR Named Replacement

Posted by - 04:16 PM on 05/09/12
Due to an emergency tonsillectomy for Travis Barker, Blink 182 has been forced to drop off of Bamboozle. My Chemical Romance has been named the replacement.

Update: All of the U.S. shows are cancelled, with only the OK dates being rescheduled. The European tour is still on.

Looks like Europe is still on though. Scary that the shows are about a month away.

How long is it going to take Travis to get over here...

Wishing Travis a speedy recovery.

I am so upset by this news. They were one of the main attractions for this year's festival I wanted to see. I was just checking out the Bamboozle page getting pumped for next week to find this announcement as they posted it.

Blink 182 have impeccable timing for everything.

Also...really? MCR was the best they could do? I wish they moved Gaslight to that spot and got a totally different special guest for Sunday...

Really hope the UK tour dates aren't cancelled again. Hopefully Travis will have recovered by July.

Fuck. I was looking forward to seeing them in CT. I hope they reschedule as well, just seeing AAR isn't gonna be that great considering their new album :/

Edit: It's not being rescheduled. Double fuck.
