Rock icons Blink-182 have angered fans over the offer to meet Travis Barker for $1,000 — gig ticket not included.

The All The Small Things singers are heading on tour once again this summer, moving around the US before coming to Europe and the UK in August.

As an add-on, the husband of Kourtney Kardashian is selling $1,000 (£760) meet-and-greet tickets, which include a signed Polaroid picture and ‘one laminate’.

Fans of the 48-year-old drummer are also able to get a tattoo on their arm or leg from ‘one of Travis’ favourite artists’, selecting from ‘flash designs’.

Flash are smaller and repeatable designs, sometimes sold at a discount during special events.

Travis revealed the tattoos, which appeared to be fine-line designs including statements like ‘aliens are real’ and Blink’s logo.

Blink-182 ticketholders have reportedly been emailed with the upgrade package, after spending on average $100 to see the gig.

‘Looking forward to seeing Blink 182 in August but this is disappointing to see,’ vented Adam Nenne on X.

‘Don’t need to be a huge fan, just need to be rich! There must be a better way to do this on a more equitable level that favours the fandom over the almighty dollar.’

He shared a screenshot of the offer on Ticketmaster, racking up a whopping $2,000 (£1,580) for just two tickets.

Shocked fans asked if this was the ‘official price’ which Adam confirmed and swirlyeyes added: ‘The fact that it doesn’t even include a ticket for that price is ASTOUNDING.’

‘That’s cheap, $2,500 in Detroit 🤣🤦🏻‍♂️,’ shared Ross Joyce, although he did not share if that was for one ticket or multiple.

Sharing an old tweet by Oli Sykes, scathing bands charging for meet and greets, bláthnaid wrote: ‘Travis barker ur embarrassing.’

Many pointed out this was only to meet Travis, not Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge, as Greta added: ‘He cannot be serious with this lmao i spent like $250 to meet the Matt Skiba version of blink-182 back in 2016 and it included a ticket lmao.’

‘Not the Kardashian lifestyle catching up to him,’ scathed Jill and other users who called the price ‘a joke’.

Some did support the cost, citing the tattoo or the cost of his security in defence of the decision.

The resounding feeling was summed up by Grey, who said: ‘Unless Jesus himself resurrects a dead musician like Lazarus in front of my very eyes, I’m not paying $1,000 to meet ANYBODY.’ has reached out to Blink-182 and Travis for comment.
