“Travis has returned home to the States due to an urgent family issue,”

. “The Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin shows are being postponed.”

The pop-punk band completed the North American leg of their World Tour in July and were about to launch into the European portion in Glasgow when Barker rushed home. Blink-182 added Friday that any information about the situation will be shared later.Blink-182 wrote early Friday morning on X, the platform formerly known as TwitterMere hours before the band’s announcement, Barker shared disconcerting images.

The drummer posted photos of a stained glass window, a “Together we pray” banner and a door reading, “Prayer Room.” Online sleuths apparently identified the sanctuary as that of Glasgow Airport — and speculate the emergency concerns Barker’s pregnant wife.

His former spouse, Shanna Moakler, with whom Barker shares two children, addressed the situation Friday in Los Angeles and reportedly told photographers: “I’m just praying that his immediate family — and the baby and Kourtney and everyone — is safe and OK.”

Barker kept details surrounding the family emergency private but posted concerning photos.

“I don’t know what’s going on, I just know that our kids are safe and sound — obviously, that’s important to me,” Moakler told the photographers Friday, per Page Six. “Obviously, whenever they have to cancel shows, it’s a really big deal.”

Representatives for Barker and Kardashian did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Page Six. No one has spoken up about it, not even their blended families — Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian or Kris Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Barker was married to Moakler between 2004 and 2008 and raised her daughter. Kardashian has never married her ex-partner Scott Disick with whom she has three children. Mason, Penelope and Reign are all under the age of eight. In late June, the couple announced that they were expecting a son.
