Childish Gambino postpones tour after injuring foot
TownNews.com Content Exchange

Childish Gambino has postponed his 'This Is America Tour' dates due to his on-going foot injury.

The 35-year-old rapper-and-actor - whose real name is Donald Glover - had to cut short his Dallas concert on Sunday night (23.09.18) after suffering with the ailment, and now it has been revealed that a number of his shows will be moved to a later date whilst he rests the body part.

Among the postponed shows is his concert at the Forum in Inglewood, California, tonight (26.09.18).

The venue tweeted: "Tomorrow's Childish Gambino show at the Forum has been postponed. Tickets will be valid at the newly scheduled date when announced. Thank you. (sic)"

And announcing further dates will be pushed back, a message on Fam Rothstein's profile - who makes up the agency Wolf + Rothstein along with Donald and Wolf Taylor - read: "This is America tour is postponed, not cancelled. My guy played through the pain, but has to sit some dates out. Back before the years over. (sic)"

An official at the Dallas venue had told TMZ that the singer had broken his foot, and a concert-goer claimed he was attempting a dance move when he hurt himself further.

Audience members were said to be confused about whether he was returning for an encore, because he didn't play hits 'Redbone' and '3005' before exiting the stage.

Radio DJ Kevin Turner wrote: "A security guard at Childish Gambino said "change of plans". The show ended without them playing Sober, 3005, Sweatpants, and Redbone so naturally most of the crowd is p***ed and also confused. I thought it was a great show but I love the "Awaken, My Love" album. (sic)"

It has also been claimed he may have aggravated a pre-existing injury after Gambino is said to have arrived for a performance in Vegas at the iHeartRadio Music Festival last Friday (21.09.18) in a wheelchair and leg brace.

Earlier this month, Gambino told fans at his Atlanta concert this would be his last ever tour.

He said: "If you're at this show know that it's the last Gambino tour ever. This is not a concert. This is f***ing church."
