Blink 182“s Travis Barker is still so traumatized from the fiery plane crash he survived in “08 … he just cancelled his upcoming concert gigs overseas … because he”s too afraid to fly.
You”ll recall … Barker was in a horrific crash when the plane he was flying caught fire as the jet was taking off in South Carolina. Four people were killed.
Still shook up … Barker told fans Saturday night he wouldn”t be traveling to Australia for Blink”s upcoming tour — because he just couldn”t.
Barker posted on Facebook, “I still haven”t gotten over the horrific events that took place the last time I flew when my plane crashed and 4 people were killed, two being my best friends.”
He continued, “I gave the band my blessing to take another drummer if they still wanted to do the tour without me. I hope to come to Australia again some day perhaps by ship if need be. Unfortunately, there wasn”t a boat that worked with the schedule this time around. Once again I”m sorry to all the fans.”
