EXCLUSIVE. Travis Barker’s good news has turned bad – shortly after getting out of the hospital where he was getting treatment for blood clots, he had to be readmitted … TMZ has learned.
Sources tell us the Blink-182 drummer was released from the L.A.-area hospital on Monday evening, but had to be readmitted Tuesday morning.
Travis went in late last week when doctors discovered he had blood clots in both arms.
We’re told the situation’s more complicated now.
He’s also battling a staph infection and something called cellulitis – an infection of the skin – in addition to the clots.
Doctors are monitoring to see how he responds to blood thinners, and to make sure the clots don’t travel to his heart or lungs.
As bad as it sounds, our sources say Travis is keeping a positive attitude, and looking forward to getting back onstage.
Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker reveals he’s suffering from blood clots
Blink-182 announced they were canceling this weekend’s shows in Las Vegas after the rock band’s drummer Travis Barker suffered blood clots in his arms.
Blink-182 began their residency at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas last month but said Friday and Saturday’s shows would have to be rescheduled.
BARRY MANILOW HOSPITALIZED WITH BRONCHIAL INFECTION, FORCED TO CANCEL SHOW. “Friends, Travis Barker is suffering from blood clots in both of his arms and unfortunately cannot perform until cleared to do so by his medical team,” the band announced on Twitter.
“The situation is being closely monitored. Due to this situation, it is with great regret that the Blink-182 ‘Kings of the Weekend’ Las Vegas residency dates this weekend must be rescheduled,” the statement read. Barker, 42, also released a statement.
“Drumming is my life and it kills me that I can’t perform for you guys this weekend. I hope to be back as soon as I can,” Barker said.
Like Blink-182, singer Barry Manilow had to cancel his sold-out show at the Westgate in Las Vegas.
Manilow was hospitalized with a bronchial infection.

Blink-182 says the band’s drummer Travis Barker cannot play due to blood clots in both arms.
Blink-182’s Las Vegas residency has hit a health-induced hurdle, after just four shows.
“Friends, Travis Barker is suffering from blood clots in both arms, and unfortunately cannot perform until cleared by his medical team. The situation is being closely monitored,” the band announced in a statement posted on Twitter Friday.
This weekend’s shows will be rescheduled, the statement said, adding that new dates will be posted on its website shortly and refunds will be made available to fans who can’t make those new nights.
The punk-pop trio, known for songs like “All the Small Things” and “What’s My Age Again” announced their “Kings of the Weekend” residency in March, and have only played four dates so far.
Blink-182 was scheduled to play next weekend and then return to Las Vegas’ Palms Casino and Resort in late October after a summer break.
“Drumming is my life and it kills me that I can’t perform for you guys this weekend,” Barker, 42, told fans in the tweet.
