Travis Barker Makes First Stage Appearance With Machine Gun Kelly After Hospitalization

Travis Barker received a hero's welcome after being hospitalized for pancreatitis and joining Machine Gun Kelly on stage for his LA gig.

According to Page Six, midway through his performance on Wednesday, July 13 at The Forum in Los Angeles, Machine Gun Kelly remarked, “There’s a person I grew up idolizing that I became friends with, and he believed in me. And never more have I wanted to jam to a song that he and I created. LA’s own Travis Barker, make some noise for him tonight.” Travis appeared to take a seat behind the drum kit as MGK started playing the album’s title tune.

Since being admitted to the hospital with pancreatitis late last month, it was Travis’s first appearance in front of an audience. “You know a fun fact is that Travis is not supposed to be playing the drums right now but guess what he’s doing here? Playing the drums right now!” MGK, whose real name is Colson Baker, added. “Trav, I know we agreed to one song, but I would be remised if I did not ask you to play ‘one more song.'” Travis additionally performed the drums on “Bloody Valentine” as well as “Tickets To My Downfall.”

Megan Fox and Kourtney Kardashian were present to express their support. “Twin Flame,” the last song MGK released, was “for my lady,” as he stated in the dedication. Travis and Kourtney were spotted in the audience earlier in the evening. Travis cosied up to his wife, but no one expected him to abandon his studded vest and sit behind the drum kit. Travis was admitted to the hospital on June 28. Although the reason for his emergency hospitalization at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center was first unknown, Travis would subsequently disclose that he suffered from pancreatitis.

“I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great,” Travis posted on Instagram on July 2. “But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since.” “During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube,” the Blink-182 drummer added. “This resulted in severe life-threatening pancreatitis. I am so very, very grateful that with intensive treatment, I am currently much better.”
