Last minute cancellation, tickets to be refunded, gig not re-scheduled
Blink 182 have cancelled a sold out concert at the Brixton Academy this evening, after bassist Mark Hoppus was taken ill last night.
The band played the venue as part of a two-night stint at the south London venue, but will not be returning for the second night due to vocalist Mark Hoppus being diagnosed with bronchitis, laryngitis and sinusitis.
The show in London was set to be the final night of the trio's UK tour.
A statement from the band states:
"It is with regret that tonight’s Blink 182 show at London's O2 Academy Brixton has been cancelled. Unfortunately Mark Hoppus was taken ill at the end of last night’s show and has been diagnosed with bronchitis, laryngitis and sinusitis. This is the last thing the band want to do but on doctors advice today it has been highly advised that Mark cannot perform and the show can't go ahead. Regrettably a rescheduled date cannot not be arranged and customers are advised to contact their point of purchase for a refund."
