Apologies to fans of Childish Gambino, Donald Glover, Troy Barnes, or Lando Calrissian: The sold-out Australian leg of the Childish Gambino tour has been cancelled.
The cancellation is due to a foot injury Glover sustain during a Dallas concert last month and follows a string of gig cancellations across the globe.
In a statement, the ‘This Is America’ singer said “I’m not ready to put on 100% shows. Apologies to the fans. I will be back soon.”
Tour promoters Live Nation have promised fans that they are working to reschedule all the dates of the tour, and will have more information soon.
Meanwhile, the Spilt Milk Festival, where Childish Gambino was set to headline, has put out a statement noting both his eleventh-hour cancellation and the difficulty in finding a replacement headliner at such short notice:
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.
Refunds are available from October 30 via Moshtix until November 1, 2018 at 3pm AEST
While it’s a sad day for ticketholders and fans alike, the best we can hope for is that Donald Glover has a speedy recovery.
