blink182bw dl 6301 Blink 182 Honors 9/11 With Proceeds From Brooklyn Show Going To Charity

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 tonight 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

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. “All of my first tattoos were gone after that plane crash and my skin grafts,” the drummer told Inked Magazine. “So I have a second chance to do my legs all over again, which is kind of cool for that to come out of a bad situation.”

Blink-182 have five final stops on their U.S. tour, which wraps up September 20 in Chula Vista, Calif.
