Travis Barker Bows Out Of Blink182 Concert Dates In Australia Because He's Not Ready To Fly!

Travis Barker has had to battle his fair share of demons since barely surviving the plane crash that killed four others back in 2008, and although he's now drug-free and changed his lifestyle to ensure his health is his top priority, he is still unable to fly.

Which sadly means that he simply cannot join his blink182 bandmates for their upcoming tour dates in Australia.

He posted the following message on Facebook last night:

"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. 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."

We don't think anyone can fault him for making the decision that he has.

The trauma he's been forced to endure is simply unimaginable.

We're sure your fans down under understand, Travis!

You just focus on doing what you have to in order to keep yourself happy and healthy!

Stay strong! You're in our thoughts!

    aww that is really sad…but I'm glad he is being honest about why he won't be showing up…It's a lot better for him to be honest than to just not do it and have fans and other people criticize him and speculate possibly untrue reasons. That's sad though…I hope he will be able to find a way to overcome this…because there are a lot of people out there who has had phobias like this and with the help of others, and psychologists, etc have been able to move forward and lead happy lives.

    Clap, clap, clap. Good for him. The tragedy he suffered and the nightmares that must haunt him, I can't say I blame him.

    Does anyone blame him? He went through a traumatic incident and it would be hard for anyone.
