Performances by Weezer, Taking Back Sunday and Chester French were set to continue as planned along with "some special surprises," Blink 182 said in a statement. "We thank all of our fans for their support in this tough time."
Barker, who had been a fellow survivor with Goldstein of a plane crash last year, made it through a difficult performance on Saturday in Hartford, Conn., with a moment of silence dedicated to the celebrity DJ.
Over the weekend, Barker posted a message on Twitter about the passing of his pal. "I'll never forget everything we've been thru and every time i play the drums i'll think of you," he wrote. "My brother is gone. i love u and miss u, i'll never forget all the good times we had."
