Tyler, The Creator has canceled a string of South American dates stretching from March 16 through March 25.

The canceled shows include sets in Santiago, Chile; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Bogota, Colombia; and in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Three of the four dates were sets at Lollapalooza-branded festivals.

“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.”

Tyler enjoyed a successful 2017 and was busy touring the last half of the year in support of his critically acclaimed Flower Boy album, though only three dates were reported to Pollstar’s Boxoffice. All three sold out and included The Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, N.J., selling 2,201 tickets and grossing $73,540; St. Louis’s The Pageant, selling 2,000 tickets and grossing $50,000; and McMenamins Crystal Ballroom on Portland, Ore., moving 1,490 tickets and grossing $52,200.

The rapper still plans on kicking off a north American run starting at The Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles April 11. He’s also embarking on a European outing in June.
