Blink 182 have this afternoon cancelled tonight’s (July 26) gig at Brixton Academy due to the illness of bassist Mark Hoppus.
The band have also announced that the show will not be rescheduled but ticket holders can contact their point of purchase for a refund.
The statement reads:
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.
