Blink 182 statement for cancelled shows

Blink have released a statement citing their reasons for the cancellation of their forthcoming European tour.

It reads:

“Due to singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge suffering a herniated disc in his back, Blink-182 has postponed their European tour, scheduled for January 2002.

Said Tom DeLonge, “Recently, I consulted a specialist and he informed me that I need to be off my feet and seeking treatment. My condition may require surgery and I will be reevaluated in eight weeks. At that time, we’ll be able to make plans for the future.”

So there you go. Either he has a bad back, or he is a very convincing liar…

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
