Originally, Columbus, OH was slated as the kickoff location for the tour but production delays forced the band to reschedule.

The stop was moved to the very end of the tour, adding All Time Low to the lineup to make the wait worth it.
Then, yesterday, as discovered by  Live Nation Columbus and the Nationwide Arena website, the rescheduled Sept. 22 show is no longer happening.“CANCELLED: @blink182‘s tour will now conclude in Brooklyn, New York on September 20. The September 22 show at @NationwideArena in Columbus, OH has been cancelled. All tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.”
As of yesterday, there was no reason for the cancelation. Now, Gaskarth has kind of explained that the cancelation was “
completely beyond our control” and apologized to fans. 
As of press time, Gaskarth is the only member of a band involved in the show who has released any statement about the cancelation.
