Blink-182 have been forced to cancel a gig due to "band illness".

2017 Billboard Power 100

The rock trio, comprised of Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba, were scheduled to play at the Bournemouth International Centre in England on Monday night (17Jul17).

However, a statement released on the same day revealed that the group can no longer perform as it seems all three musicians are unwell.

"It is with deep regret that Blink-182 have to cancel their show this evening at Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) due to band illness, on doctors' advice. Refunds will be available from point of purchase," the announcement reads.

It's not known what exactly is wrong, but the band did confirm in the statement that they will still be playing their scheduled dates at London's O2 Arena later this week on 19 and 20 July.

Whether or not Blink-182 will return to Bournemouth to make up for the last-minute cancellation has yet to be confirmed.

The band are currently touring their new album California, which marks their first record following the departure of former vocalist Tom DeLonge in 2015.
