blink-182 Cancel Rescheduled Show With All Time Low, Neck Deep
blink-182, who are currently on a co-headlining tour with Lil Wayne, officially cancelled their show in Columbus that had been rescheduled from June.
Originally, the group was supposed to perform at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio on June 27 as their first stop on tour. However, the gig was rescheduled to September 22, and while Lil Wayne could not make it to the gig, pop-punk group All Time Low stepped in as a replacement with Neck Deep providing support. However, with a week ahead of the show, the concert has been cancelled.
blink-182 has not commented on the cancellation, however, promoter Live Nation announced that ticketholders should seek refunds via point of purchase.
The group has been playing on the co-headlining tour since late June, making stops in cities like Bangor, Columbia, Tampa, Irvine, and Denver. Along the way, however, they’ve had some difficulties: at one show, Lil Wayne’s tour bus broke down, causing him to headline the night, and later in the summer, blink-182 had to cancel a show in El Paso due to a mass shooting in the city. The unlikely pairing of the punk-rockers with a rapper also caused some controversy, leading to Lil Wayne threatening to quit the tour – which he later retracted.
Now, the tour will wrap-up in Brooklyn, New York on September 20 at Barclays Center.
