Blink-182 Play Surprise 9/11 Tribute Concert

(Radio.com) Originally scheduled as a day off from their heavy U.S. tour schedule, Blink-182's Tom Delonge Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker opted to add a Brooklyn show last night as a 9/11 tribute and a means to generate money and awareness for two hospitals.

The pop-punk trio will donate the proceeds from tonight's sold-out concert at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg to two hospitals; New York's William Randolph Hearst Burn Center and Los Angeles' City of Hope.

"It was important to Travis to give to the burn center, based on everything he'd suffered from in the plane crash," Barker's longtime publicist, Jenni Weinmann, confirmed to Radio.com.

Barker, along with DJ AM suffered second and third degree burns in September of 2008 after a private jet they were aboard crashed shortly after takeoff from a South Carolina airport. more on this story
