Blink-182 announced on their Facebook page yesterday that they have scrapped a run of tour dates, including a headlining performance at the Bamboozle Festival, so that drummer Travis Barker can recover from an emergency tonsillectomy. The Bamboozle Festival announced yesterday that My Chemical Romance will be taking Blink-182's place on the festival bill and will perform before Foo Fighters on the main stage of the event on May 19th.

Blink-182's May 10th and 11th shows at the Winstar Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma have been rescheduled for September 13th and 14th. The rest of the band's gigs scheduled for this month have been cancelled and will not be rescheduled. Those dates are as follows:

5/15 Blue Cross Arena – Rochester, NY
5/17 Verizon Wireless Arena – Manchester, NH
5/18 Mohegan Sun – Uncasville, CT
5/19 Bamboozle Festival – Asbury Park, NJ
5/20 Sands Bethlehem Event Center – Bethlehem, PA
5/22 Colisee Pepsi Arena – Quebec City, Quebec
