Blink-182 have announced the cancellation of several tour dates so that drummer Travis Barker can recover from an emergency tonsillectomy.

Among the cancelled shows is a headlining performance at the Bamboozle Festival, which takes place May 19 in Asbury Park, New Jersey. However, festival organizers have announced a replacement: New Jersey's own My Chemical Romance.
