BLINK-182 have been forced to scrap a tour of Australia, Japan and Hawaii after drummer Travis Barker broke his right foot.

The punk star smashed his foot after reportedly falling off a bus last Friday (12MAR04).

The accident means the trio will be out of action until dates in Mexico next month (APR04).

Barker says, "I am seriously bummed that we couldn't play for our fans in Australia, Japan and Hawaii. It was just a freak accident. But it'll heal and we'll be back."
