The drummer, 47, showed off his twisted, misshapen ring finger on his left hand Tuesday on his Instagram Story.
“F–k,” he captioned the gnarly black-and-white photo.
Barker, who married Kourtney Kardashian in May 2022, shared that he spent the afternoon at a doctor’s office, where he received a scan and an injection to ease the pain.
The following day, the musician provided worried fans with an explanation of how the injury happened, tweeting, “I was playing the drums at rehearsals yesterday and I smashed my finger so hard I dislocated it and tore the ligaments 🤬.”

Blink-182 announced its highly anticipated world tour in October 2022, telling fans that Barker, Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge will come together for the first time in nearly a decade to perform the rock band’s greatest hits as well as brand-new tracks.

In December, DeLonge, 47, boldly declared that Blink-182‘s upcoming album, which has yet to be titled, is “the best we’ve ever made.”
“Buckle up. I’m personally tripping and so proud of what we have created TOGETHER,” he wrote on Instagram. “As one unified force of fun, eternal youth, and most of all- close friends.”The rock band also has a new album on the way.Getty Images for dcp
Fans were pleased to learn that Blink-182’s founding members DeLonge, 47, and Hoppus, 50, had repaired their years-long friendship after the latter was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in early 2021. The bassist announced he was cancer-free that September.
During their upcoming tour, the group behind hits like “All the Small Things” and “What’s My Age Again?” is set to grace the stage of several music festivals, including Lollapalooza in Argentina, Chile and Brazil, as well as When We Were Young in Las Vegas in October.The musician married Kourtney Kardashian in May 2022.kourtneykardash/Instagram
Their opening acts will be Wallows in Latin America, Turnstile in North America, Rise Against in Australia and The Story So Far in Europe.
The tour is set to run through March 2024.
