Disappointing news for fans of Childish Gambino this morning, with confirmation his forthcoming Australian tour has been cancelled.
The superstar (responsible for the No.1 chart hit ‘This Is America’ earlier this year) has been forced to withdraw from his Australian touring commitments due a foot injury he sustained during a concert last month in Texas.
“I’m not ready to put on 100% shows,” he said in a statement. “Apologies to the fans. I will be back soon.”
The entire Australian tour was sold out.
The cancellation also leaves Canberra’s Spilt Milk Festival without its headline act.
Organisers there saying, “An artist the calibre of Childish Gambino can never truly be replaced so close to event day, but we will be announcing an exciting line up addition shortly.”
Live Nation is hoping to reschedule the shows down the track.
