Four shows were affected by the emergency and the band’s next scheduled event is a week from their announcement, Friday, September 8, in Antwerpen, Germany. 

What Happened to Travis Barker’s Family?

Prior to the band’s announcement, Travis shared a series of photos to his Instagram Story seemingly asking for prayers. A second image showed a blue banner which read, “Together We Pray.”

Though neither Travis nor Kourtney publicly addressed the family emergency at the time, they were spotted leaving a Los Angeles medical center on September 2 – as seen in photos obtained by Page Six.

Two days later, it was revealed that Travis’ family emergency involved his pregnant wife, Kourtney. She had been admitted to a hospital because she thought she was in labor, People reported on September 4.

However, it seems like the Lemme founder is on the mend. “[Kourtney is] back home now with her kids,” adding: “She is feeling better. She is happy to have Travis back home too.”

Kourtney broke her silence on September 6, revealing she was “rushed into urgent fetal surgery” and was blessed to leave the hospital with her baby boy safe in the womb.

“I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life,” she wrote via Instagram alongside a photo of Travis holding her hand in the hospital. “I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock. And to my mom, thank you for holding my hand through this.”

Travis is currently expecting a child with wife Kourtney Kardashian. The pair announced the exciting news in June during a Blink concert, after years of fertility struggles. 

The reality TV star attended one of her husband’s shows in Los Angeles where she was seen jumping up and down holding up a handwritten sign that said, “Travis I’m pregnant.” Kourtney jammed out in the crowd before an excited Travis jumped down into the audience to embrace his wife.

When Is Kourtney Kardashian Due?

Just weeks after sharing their pregnancy news, Kourtney and Travis hosted a rock n’ roll themed gender reveal party for their little one. Guests at the event received tour passes that read, “Baby Barker World Tour with Special Guest Kravis. All Access.”

In the sweet video shared to their Instagram pages, Travis is seen doing a drumroll as Kourtney sat on his lap, both wearing all white. At the end of the drumroll, blue confetti shot into the air revealing that they are expecting a baby boy.
