Travis Barker needs more time to grieve.
"After much thought and consideration, Blink-182 has rescheduled their next two shows in order for Travis Barker to mourn the loss of his dear friend Adam Goldstein," the band says in a statement.
Blink-182, which pulled out
of Monday's show in Saratoga, N.Y., will now play St. Louis on Sept. 29 and Cleveland on Sept. 30. To accommodate the change, shows in Charlotte, N.C., and Atlanta have also moved to Oct. 6 and Oct. 7 respectively.
The band, which plans to resume its tour on Friday in Kansas City, "would like to thank all their fans for their support during this difficult time," says the statement.
