Two weeks after resuming his tour with Blink-182, Travis Barker has shared an unfortunate health update.
On the evening of Friday, Sept. 23, the drummer uploaded a photo of himself holding a positive at-home COVID test to his Instagram story, as seen reuploaded by a fan account. He reacted to the confirmation that he has the virus with a collection of emojis: "🤒😵🥴."
The 44-year-old didn't share further details about his illness, but, luckily, it appears that Barker will have enough time to recover before the band's next show; the band is currently on a brief break until Monday, Oct. 2, where they're slated to perform in Lisboa, Portugal.
The band will then return home after playing at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds on Oct. 22, without having to return to the road until February 2024.
Barker's wife Kourtney Kardashian has yet to comment on his health status but remains home in Los Angeles.
At the beginning of the month, Blink-182 postponed the first few dates of the European and UK leg of their world tour after Barker experienced an "urgent family matter." It was later revealed that Kardashian required emergent fetal surgery after a pregnancy complication.
In a statement shared on Instagram, the Poosh founder wrote, "I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life. I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock. And to my mom, thank you for holding my hand through this."
