Watch: Travis Barker Leaves Blink-182 Tour for "Urgent Family Matter"

Travis Barker is putting his family first.

The drummer, who is currently on tour in Europe with Blink-182, flew home to be with his loved ones, the band announced Sept. 1.

"Due to an urgent family matter, Travis has had to return home to the States," the group wrote in a social media statement. "The Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin shows are being postponed. More information in regards to his return to Europe and rescheduled dates will be provided as soon as available."

While Travis—who is expecting a baby boy with his wife Kourtney Kardashian—has yet to comment on the situation, he did post several photos to his Instagram Story early Sept. 1 from what appeared to be a prayer room.

E! News has reached out to reps for Travis and Kourtney and has not yet heard back.

Prior to the 47-year-old's temporary departure from tour, Blink-182 was set to take this stage this weekend in the United Kingdom, before heading to Ireland, Belgium and Germany next week.

Travis reunited with his bandmates Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge for a Blink-182 world tour earlier this year, and it's been a memorable few months for the group.


In fact, it was during the band's Los Angeles concert in June that Travis and Kourtney announced their baby news to the world, with the Kardashians star holding up a sign that read, "Travis I'm pregnant."

Weeks later, the couple revealed that they're expecting a son.


Last month, Kourtney shared a sweet message to her and Travis' baby boy.

"Growing you inside of me, my son," she wrote on Instagram Aug. 8, "is the greatest blessing, honor and joy."
