Travis Barker plays gig despite paramedics telling him to “go to the hospital asap”

Travis Barker played a gig over the weekend (Saturday 2nd January) despite being so unwell paramedics advised him to get to hospital asap.

The show was part of his #GiveTheDrummerSome residency at Hyde Bellagio in Las Vegas.

“Thanks to everybody that came to Hyde Bellagio this past Saturday for the show and sound check,” he says on Facebook.

“I had a 104 temp and was severely nauseous and dizzy. The paramedics demanded I not play and go to the hospital asap. I said I’m playing till I either pass out, throw up or die.

“Met so many of you guys at sound check that came from Mexico, Australia, etc. and there was no way I was gonna let you guys down. I got thru my entire set and I appreciate all the love.”
