Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker, and Matt Skiba of blink-182 attend KROQ Weenie Roast 2018 at StubHub Center on May 12, 2018 in Carson, Calif.

Blink-182 has announced a small run of shows following a string of cancellations of their Vegas residency due to Travis Barker contracting blood clots in his arms.

The pop-punk forefathers will be playing 10 dates in Sept., including their stop at Riot Fest, before returning to Vegas to finish out their residency at Palms Casino in late October. Back in June, drummer Barker contracted a staph infection and blood clots in his arms, forcing him to be hospitalized and the band to cancel a number of shows. 

After Barker's recent go-ahead from the doctor to begin playing shows again, he took to Twitter to poke fun at the situation, writing, "Who’s tryna kill me. Feel like I’m living Final Destination the movie for the 2nd time in my life Blood clots = 0 Me = 1."

New York natives State Champs will be joining blink-182 at several stops on their run of the Midwest and East Coast as well.
