Travis Barker Opts Out of Overseas Gig … Fear of Crashing

0217_travis_barker_tmzBlink 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.”
