Blink-182 have postponed their show in El Paso, Texas following a mass shooting that occurred in the city on Saturday. 

The news comes after the band were put on lockdown in their hotel in the city. On Saturday, 20 people were killed and more than two dozen were injured at a shooting in a shopping center in the city.

Yesterday, Mark Hoppus was live-tweeting the lockdown to give fans updates on their safety.

“we are locked down in our hotel in el paso. over the intercom system they just announced that there are reports of another active shooter directly across the street at a location different from the first shootings.”

The blink-182 vocalist adds, “we were leaving breakfast when our security texted that there was an active shooter at the mall we were headed to. saw dozens of police cars on the freeway and surface streets. helicopters. we got back to the hotel and turned on the news to see what was happening. then the intercom said there are reports of another shooting across the street at the bassett place mall. i don’t see or hear police or helicopters so hopefully it’s just an over abundance of caution and someone got the malls confused. so terrible.”

He later clarified his statement. 

“update: police confirm report of a separate incident at bassett mall is incorrect. we are still in our hotel. federal agent at the door to the building.”

Now, the band revealed they decided to change the date of their Sunday show at UTEP Don Haskins Arena in solidarity with the city. 

“Following today’s terrible tragedy in El Paso we are postponing our Sunday, August 4th show at the UTEP Don Haskins Arena in solidarity with the community. Please stay tuned for further updates coming soon. Sending our love to the entire community of El Paso,” the band wrote. 

The alleged shooter is 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, who is in custody, and the shooting is being investigated as domestic terrorism.
