Childish Gambino Forced to Reschedule Tour Due to Foot Injury

Bad news for fans of Childish Gambino, as the “Feels Like Summer” artist has been forced to reschedule his “This Is America” tour after breaking his foot on-stage during a Dallas concert.

Deadline reports Gambino cancelled his Los Angeles date, but is working to reschedule the rest of his shows, getting back on the road once his foot has completely healed. While the postponement is disappointing, it’s good to know fans will still get their last shot to see Gambino on-stage. The rapper recently announced that his current tour will be his last.   

Glover broke his foot on-stage last weekend, with fans realizing something was wrong when he left the stage 30 minutes before the show was set to end, then didn’t return. An announcer eventually told the crowd  the show was officially over before Gambino performed two of his biggest songs, “Redbone” and “3005.”

Some concertgoers believe the Atlanta native hurt himself while attempting to do the splits; others say he misstepped during a dance move.
