Earlier this summer Tyler, The Creator took to Twitter to cryptically announce he’d been banned from Australia. He wasn’t actually banned, but a feminist grassroots organization called Collective Shout was campaigning to keep him from performing in their country. In order to duck the controversy, Tyler and his touring company canceled the Australian dates all together, and now they’ve canceled several others.
On Twitter today he shared that he will be canceling several UK dates — including sets at the Reading and Leeds festivals– due to “circumstances”:
DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES I WONT BE PLAYING READING, LEEDS, BELFEST AND OTHER SHOWS IN THE UK. SUCKS AND IM SORRY. I LOVE YOU, SAVE THE HORSES -T
— Tyler, The Creator (@fucktyler) August 24, 2015
Shows on 8/25 and 8/26 in Belfast and Dublin respectively have also been canceled. No word yet on refunds or rescheduling but we will update as more information surfaces.
