In a response to one user’s Instagram comment, the official Vans Warped Tour account shared the surprising news that Blink-182 was set to play at a stop on the tour’s final run.

When asked by a fan if another band was going to be making a surprise appearance, the tour’s account shared the news that Blink was scheduled to play, but due to drummer Travis Barker’s recent health issues, they had to cancel:

“Blink was going to play but Travis is having medical issues with blood clots in his arm and his health is the most important thing right now.”

While we would have loved to see Blink-182 make a stop on the tour’s final cross-country run, this has us wondering if any other bands will be making a surprise appearance on the lineup.

Back in March, the tour shared its final lineup, featuring Waterparks, Real Friends, Mayday Parade and more, plus special appearances from All Time Low, Black Veil Brides, Sum 41 and more.
