Injury Forces Barker off +44 tour

Drummer Travis Barker is leaving a European tour with his new band +44 because of an unhealed fractured arm.

The former Blink-182 drummer had been on tour despite a fractured right arm he suffered Sept. 9 while filming a video, according to Interscope Records.

Barker, 31, will return to Los Angeles to be treated. The band, fronted by former Blink-182 singer and bassist Mark Hoppus, has not announced a replacement drummer.

A message left at Interscope Records was not immediately returned Sunday.

Barker starred in the MTV reality series “Meet the Barkers” with former Miss USA Shanna Moakler, to whom he was married at the time. The show documented the former couple’s lavish wedding and life.
