A shirtless Travis Barker delivers heartbreaking drum solo during Young Thugs SNL performance

Young Thug was this week’s musical guest on Saturday Night Live.

But it was Travis Barker who stole the show when he delivered a heart-pounding drum solo during a performance of the 30-year-old rapper’s hit Tick Tock.

The 45-year-old Blink-182 rocker showed off his extensive body tattoo collection by performing shirtless on a set of bright red drums.

In keeping with the show’s scarlet color scheme, Barker covered his head with a red hat.

He also took a chainlink choker around his neck as he played his heart out.

Young Thug, who just released his second studio album Punk last Friday, could not help but stare in awe at Travis’ drumming skills with the rest of his band.

Punk has 20 brand new songs as well as musical cameos by e.g. ‘Drake, J. Cole, Travis Scott, the late Mac Miller, Future, the late Juice WRLD, A $ AP Rocky, Post Malone, Doja Cat, Gunna and more,’ according to Pitchfork.

Along with Tick Tock, Young Thug also performed the sentimental pop hit Love You More with FUN lead singer Nate Ruess, Gunna and Jeff Bhasker.

Ruess, wearing a bright red suit and a head of light blonde hair, delivered the song’s autotuned opening and chorus.

Meanwhile, Gunna borrowed a verse for the nearly four-minute-long modern ballad in a red beret and a luxurious fur jacket.

Travis arrived in NYC for his cameo a day ahead of time with his beautiful girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian by his side.

The KUWTK star was clearly hyped for his partner’s SNL cameo and shared a slide show with PDA-filled snaps taken behind the scenes in Studio 8H.

In the snaps, one could see the 42-year-old POOSH founder straddling and kissing the rocker.

‘Live from New York’, the mother of three described the risque images that also showed her playfully beating him with her own drumsticks.

Barker looked knocked out as he sat shirtless on a black leather sofa in a red hat, Mastermind underwear and black black pants with silver buttons.

His other half left little to the imagination in a falling blue cheetah top and shiny black pants that highlighted her famous curves.

With his own Instagram, Travis teased fans with a picture of him and Young Thug coming to a final rehearsal before their SNL spot.

Barker’s performance comes just a week after Kourtney’s younger sister Kim jokingly burned the couple’s love during her host on SNL.

In a shit titled ‘People’s Kourt’, the 40-year-old reality star funnyly imitated her older sister while she had a hammock and handed down verdicts to various members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.

Kim and Kourtney’s sister Khloe and their mother Kris Jenner played themselves in the sketch, while various SNL regulars took on the roles of Kim, Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

At one point, Kim’s Kourtney was joined by Travis Barker (played by Mikey Day) on the bench, who watched Kim eagerly jump into Mikey’s lap to join an over-the-top PDA.

Kourtney and her rocker beau clearly took no offense to the playful parody the POOSH founder shared with her Instagram Story, which she set for the episode from home.
