Childish Gambino Postpones Tour Following Foot Injury
According to TMZ, he arrived at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Friday night (September 21) in a wheelchair and leg brace, which were removed just prior to his performance. In Dallas on Sunday night (September 23), he left the stage early and did not return, having apparently aggravated the pre-existing injury.
Several eyewitnesses told TMZ that the rapper broke his foot.
