Travis Barker and wife Kourtney Kardashian caused quite the commotion at Sydney Airport ahead of his band Blink-182’s Australian tour.
All eyes were on the mega-famous couple as they flew into the Harbour City via a private jet on Tuesday, accompanied by their three-month-old son, Rocky, who was on his first ever overseas trip.
They also had Kardashian’s two children in tow: daughter Penelope, 11, and son Reign, 9. Her eldest child Mason, 13, does not appear to be on the trip.
The family were driven through the terminal on an airport buggy with the reality star cradling her newborn under a black blanket, as seen in a TikTok video shared by a fan.
They then made their way to a chauffeured car, with Barker holding an umbrella to protect his son and wife, who wore dark sunglasses and a long white coat.
The arrival came two days before Barker and his Blink-182 bandmates, Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus, kick off their Aussie tour at Perth’s RAC Arena on Thursday.
They will perform for Perth fans in a second show on Friday before rocking out in Adelaide, followed by multiple shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
This is Blink-182’s first time performing in Australia in seven years. They were last here for their world tour in 2013, but Barker did not join the band due to his fear of flying, which stemmed from surviving a plane crash in 2008.
The drummer was on-board a small aircraft at the time alongside two pilots, his security guard, personal assistant, and friend and collaborator Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM. But moments after the plane took off down the runway in South Carolina, they reported a big bang before it burst into flames on an embankment on the tarmac.
Barker and Goldstein managed to escape the aircraft by sliding down the wing, but they both suffered second-degree burns.
The rocker now credits Kardashian – who he started dating in 2021 and married in 2022 – for helping him fly again, telling the Los Angeles Times last October that her support is everything to him.
“I think the power of love really helped me. Kourt made it so I fly, my kids fly now. She healed us,” he told the outlet, referencing his two children from his previous marriage to former Miss USA beauty queen Shanna Moakler: son Landon, 20, and daughter Alabama, 18.
As for Kardashian, she last visited Australia in 2015 to launch her Kardashian Kids clothes line in Big W with her sisters, Khloé Kardashian and Kim Kardashian.
