Rumor: Blink-182 May Not Perform in St. Louis on Thursday

Posted By on Tue, Sep 1, 2009 at 11:08 AM

Last night, pop-punks Blink-182 cancelled their show in Saratoga, New York, citing the death of DJ AM, a close friend of drummer Travis Barker. (Barker and AM survived a horrific plane crash last year.) Weezer, Taking Back Sunday and Chester French still played, however. A statement on Blink's website says: 

Due to circumstances surrounding the unfortunate and untimely passing of our dear friend Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein, blink-182 will not be playing tonight in Saratoga, NY at SPAC. Performances by Weezer, Taking Back Sunday and Chester French will take place as planned along with some special surprises. We thank all of our fans for their support in this tough time.

Now A to Z is hearing rumors that Blink might not play its scheduled shows in Cleveland tomorrow night and in St. Louis on Thursday night. I have emails into Taking Back Sunday's publicist and to our local LiveNation reps, although Mark Hoppus' frequently updated Twitter will probably have whatever news happens first.
