Travis Barker has posed with his waxwork at Madame Tussauds and fans have praised its likeness.

The Blink-182 drummer has shocked fans after sharing a series of snaps of himself with his waxwork from Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, alongside the caption: "Come say hi to my clone".

The detailed figure not only has the All The Small Things facial features down to a T, but also copies his piercings and tattoos perfectly.

Fans were impressed by the waxwork tribute of the sticksman, with Blink-182 replying with a mind blown emoji from their official Instagram.

Fellow punk popper Avril Lavigne wrote: "Holy s***. I couldn’t tell which one was you haha," while Radio X's own Polly James commented that it was "one of the best" she'd seen.

Sister in law Khloe Kardashian added: "I swear it took me a minute to figure out who was who".

The unveiling of Barker's impressive waxwork comes after the band - completed by co-founders Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge - just wrapped up their UK tour dates, which included two nights at The O2, London.

Watch them perform their One More Time single on their second night at The O2 below:

The trio were due to start their tour dates on this side of the pond in September, with dates at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow, the SSE Arena in Belfast and the 3Arena in Dublin, but they were forced to axe the gigs as drummer Barker had to return home for an "urgent family matter".

When Blink initially announced the bad news last month, they released a statement, which read: "Due to an urgent family matter, Travis has had to return home to the States. The Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin shows are being postponed. More information in regards to his return to Europe and rescheduled dates will be provided as soon as available."

It was later revealed that the drummer's pregnant wife Kourtney Kardashian had to undergo "life-saving" surgery for their unborn son.

The band have also shared the plans to make good on the postponed shows in 2024, playing Belfast SSE Arena on 26th August, Dublin's Royal Hospital Kilmainham on 27th August and the SSE OVO Hydro on 29th and 30th August.

Fans who had tickets for the previous dates will be able to attend the new shows and any remaining tickets are on sale on Ticketmaster now.
