Tyler, the Creator cancels South America tour with a strange explanation
The rapper recently wrapped up his co-headlining North American tour alongside Vince Staples in support of his 'Flower Boy'.
Tyler, The Creator has announced that he’s canceled a series of South American live dates, reports NME. The 'Odd Future' rapper took to Twitter to announce the unfortunate news. Tyler was scheduled to play Lollapalooza festival legs in Chile, Argentina and Brazil later this month, as well as Festival Estéreo Picnic in Colombia.
However, the music festivals took to their Facebook page to announce that he won't be performing "for personal reasons." On Tuesday (Mar 13), Tyler tweeted to confirmed that he will no longer perform at any of the aforementioned shows, but the reason for the cancelation seems to be quite bizarre, at least going by the puzzling, nearly indecipherable metaphor in the tweet.
“Hello, I’m not coming to South America as planned anymore, sucks,” Tyler tweeted. “I will be there at some point tho, sorry, i know yall was really really looking forward to it” he added. That much was simple enough! What followed was not really so:
hello, im not coming to south america as planned anymore, sucks, i will be there at some point tho, sorry, i know yall was really really looking forward to it, but, uhhh....yeah, sometimes a duck isnt a jean jacket....ill be out there one day, holla * heart emoji*— Tyler, The Creator (@tylerthecreator) March 12, 2018
"uhhh....yeah, sometimes a duck isnt a jean jacket....ill be out there one day, holla * heart emoji* (sic)" the tweet ended. What that really means only Tyler would really know, and there's not much else we can tell until a press release (hopefully) rolls out.
Meanwhile, the rest of the tour -- which picks up on April 11 at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles, and includes performances at Coachella, Boston Calling, Sasquatch! and Primavera Sound -- remains intact, and is scheduled to wrap in Dublin on July 14 at Longitude Festival. So it looks like the cancellation was mostly due to logistical issues and Tyler is hopefully hale and hearty to perform.
Last year, Tyler released his album ‘Flower Boy’, which was nominated for Best Rap Album at the Grammys earlier this year. Tyler, The Creator recently wrapped up his co-headlining tour alongside Vince Staples in support of his 'Flower Boy'. The North American leg of the tour went pretty well and the whole tour was sold out. The South American tour was to follow next.
