Last night, pop-punks Blink-182
cancelled their show in Saratoga, New York, citing the death of DJ AM, a close friend of drummer Travis Barker. (Barker and AM survived a horrific plane crash last year.) Weezer, Taking Back Sunday and Chester French still played, however. A statement on Blink's website says:
Due to circumstances surrounding the unfortunate and untimely passing of our dear friend Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein, blink-182 will not be playing tonight in Saratoga, NY at SPAC. Performances by Weezer, Taking Back Sunday and Chester French will take place as planned along with some special surprises. We thank all of our fans for their support in this tough time.
